How To: Make Custom Pop Up Cards

Sometimes, a card from the grocery store will do. (Grandma.) Sometimes, some stationery from an independent designer is right on. (Non-artsy sibling.) A handmade card is always tops for those you like and with whom you have inside jokes. (Good friend.) But, what about when you need a kick-butt, custom card for those closest to you, that deserve the next step.

Why, you gotta take things into the next dimension.

How To: Make Mini Pizza Pops

created at: 10/27/2010

We've said it before, and are proud to say it again: we love mini things, and we want them on sticks!

Add pizza to the equation, and we're completely done-for.

Super food crafter Meaghan Mountford shows you how to create tiny pizza pops, mounted on sticks and ready to go for a party, a trip, or just a very fun-filled Dexter marathon. Heck, if those creepy people hadn't freaked everyone out and it were legit to give away homemade food for Trick-or-Treat, we'd be whipping these up by the dozens for this weekend.

How To: Make Low Cost Pop Art

Final Product

ManMade reader Jordan sent in this great how-to from the music website The Needle and the Groove.

How To: Make Homemade Pop Tarts

pop tarts, cooling

I don't particularly like the way they taste, but I do like not being hungry and having a portable treat. So, I was pretty pumped to find this DIY Pop Tart how-to from the Smitten Kitchen. Not only are they certainly more healthful and bound to taste better, but since you're starting from scratch, you can put ANYTHING you want inside: all kinds of fruit purees and jellies, honey and nuts, way better cinnamon-and-sugar combos, Nutella, and of course, SAVORY TARTS.

Wooden Figures by Jean Jullien

I don't really know what these are, and I don't care. The website calls them "wooden figures" and the index files them under toys. We'll simply resituate our dropped jaws, and file them under crazy good inspiration.
