Beth’s Craft Picks of the Week – 6/7/13

I usually try to do these on Mondays, but better late than never, right? ūüėÄ

Anyhow! ¬†Here’s this week’s crafty picks – since I’ve gotten into playing some delightfully old video games this week, like Super Mario RPG (my favorite!), this week is going to be retro game themed!

Bitter Luigi Cross-Stitch Pattern

Ahh, Mario, always getting the girl… no wonder Luigi’s a little cranky here. ¬†Cross-stitch pattern found here, at Spritestitch.¬† And there are tons more patterns there for your enjoyment!

Qbert Cross-Stitch Pattern

Good old Qbert! ¬†This cross stitch pattern is simple, and looks like it’d be a good quick project for a rainy afternoon while watching cheesy 80s movies. ¬†Found here, by Semisweetie on Etsy.

8-Bit Popup Cards

8-bit-3

These cards look really simple to make – just get a craft knife and some brightly colored card stock, and you’re all set! ¬†I did something similar to this when I was in high school, cutting pop up designs out of paper, and I had so much fun with it. ¬†Found at Minieco.co.uk.

Wreck-It Ralph Papercraft

Hey, Ralph is totally retro, right? ¬†I mean, come on, Fix-it Felix Jr., while a fictitious game, is as old as I am! ¬†Here’s a simple little papercraft project, for those who want a Ralph for their desk or who want to practice their craft knife cutting skills on something a little simpler before moving on to the 8-bit popup cards! ¬†Found here, on the Disney website.

And that’s this week’s roundup! ¬†Next week I’ll hopefully have this up on Monday, with some new crafty goodies to keep everyone occupied with!
