Inspiration | 5 Amazeballz Ideas

Collage cube art by iHanna Copyright Hanna Andersson

I like to dabble in a little of this, and a little of that. And I collect amazeballz ideas. The first linked idea, with cubies, reminds me of a project I did (in 2006!) with cubes in wood.

Here’s five ideas to check out:

Inspiration with link love from iHanna (link list at

  • Collage Cubies Project
    Collage Cubies are easy to make with few supplies and materials, these are made from paper and you’ll find a printable template too! Each Cubie can stand alone as a unique piece of art, or be combined into a interchangeable sculpture.
  • Quilted Fabric Bead Inspiration
    Victoria Gertenbach have been experimenting with different fabrics, quilting stitches and sizes to create the most exquisite fabric beads I have ever seen – and the photos are to die for. Visual inspiration overload promised.
  • Paper Marbling Experiments
    Pam about her big “adventures in paper marbling”, and a very inspiring video where marbeling looks way easier than it is but oh, so fun and fantastic. Love the look of colorful marbled papers!
  • The Notecard System
    The Key For Remembering, Organizing And Using Everything You Read, an article by Ryan Holiday. On how to take notes while reading or doing research – by using index cards. Love the idea, even though I prefer Evernote/digital record keeping system…
  • Scrappy log cabin quilt block tutorial by Flutterkat
    I love the log cabin block, and every time I see one I get inspired to drag out my quilting ruler and cut some strips of fabric. Check out the tutorial and learn how to make it!

Searching this blog you’ll see I have also done marbling, fabric beads etcetera. I dabble a lot.

What is on your list to try next?

  1. hmmm, on my list to try next? i think the notecard system. thanks for sharing that hanna-i’m always jotting bits and pieces onto scraps of paper and in journals, but to have them all in one place using index cards sounds brilliant. really enjoyed that post.

  2. What great ideas! I love the index card idea because I’ve been using it for years and he gave me some really great ideas–but your boxes are so cute! I can see them done up for Valentine’s Day!

  3. Thanks for a fun and inspiring post. Really enjoyed the Notecard post as I feel like I lose ideas all the time! Also thought the collage cubies were great but was unable to download the template. Tried both sizes but they didn’t work. I did make a notecard with that idea though!! Ha! Have a great day!
