Make Your Own Scratch-Off for Valentine's Day

Finally! A reason to love science. This project comes from Alison and her website www.oopseydaisyblog.com. And it's all about chemistry: 2 parts paint, 1 part dish soap. That's pretty much it. So let's get started. If you're not entirely creative, then this project should be liked, clipped, and shared, but no more. If you are creative, then you too should like, clip and share. But then get this project DONE. Create a fun card or lottery ticket or whatever that requires you to make homemade scratch-off stuff. That's what this card is all about. Materials: * Card or something with love sayings (to be revealed) * Dish soap (any kind will do) * Silver metallic paint (from a craft store) * Clear contact paper 1. Mix 2 parts paint to 1 part soap. Don't over think it; just eyeball it 2. Roll out a square piece of contact paper (enough to cover your creative design) 3. Paint on the mixture and let dry 1 hour 4. Paint a second coat of mixture over first layer 5. Cut out your desired shape from dried paper 6. Gently peel off contact paper from design 7. Firmly press silver cut-out onto your design Kinda embarrassing that this project is super cool and crazily easy. Like, who can't do this?! I may not have a Valentine this year, but I would love to use this technique to make fun quirky lottery cards for friends and family. They're all winners, of course. What will you do with this cool scratch-off DIY technique?

With offices in Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Denver, Cowan's auction holds more than 40 auctions each year, with annual sales exceeding $ 16 million. We reach buyers around the world and pride ourselves on our reputation for integrity, customer service, and excellent results. Cowan's Auctions, a full-service house, specializes in American history, Native American and ethnographic, decorative arts, firearms and military, and modern and contemporary art and design. In 2019, Cowan's and Leslie Hindman Auctioneers collaborated to enhance their presence in the nation by launching Hindman, yet the Cowan’s auction Cincinnati is popular amongst these. Photo of Joseph Jenkins Roberts for sale in Cowan’s Auctions Cowan’s Auctions launched its first sale dedicated to African American culture in mid-February. Leading the event is an early daguerreotype of Joseph Jenkins Roberts, the first and seventh president of Liberia. Roberts was born to free black Americans in the early 1800s before settling in Liberia. He helped establish Liberia as a republic and led the state before and after the American Civil War. The available daguerreotype shows Joseph Jenkins Roberts in the 1840s. It was taken before all previously known Robert’s images. The upcoming auction traces the history of the African American experience from the 18th century to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. One of the key lots is a recording of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1956 speech at a convention of the National Association of Black Funeral Directors. Few copies of these 33 RPM vinyl records were produced and this is the first to go up for auction. The catalog also features photographs of the civil rights movement, including a press photograph of Dr. King's 1965 march in Montgomery, Alabama. He is shown arm in arm with the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, James Foreman, the Rev. Jesse Douglas, and John Lewis. Prehistoric Pieces From the Art Gerber Collection Before Arthur Joseph Gerber Jr. became involved in photography and art collection, he served as a medic in the US Air Force. Gerber wrote a memoir titled The Art Gerber Story during the last years of his life. The book describes his interest in ancient hunting artifacts, photography, and travel. The next sale, presented by Cowan's Auctions, features numerous artifacts from the Art Gerber collection. The event is the third and final auction featuring his collection. The catalog features several key pieces from the Ohio Valley. One of the highlighted lots is "Snowy" and "Little Snowy", a pair of anthropomorphic Mississippian effigy figures made of aragonite. This particular type of aragonite is believed to be unique to Wyandotte Cave in Crawford County, Indiana. A quartz flagstone, bone hook beads, loose beads, strung bangles, and partial atlatl hook will also be available. American and European Fine Arts and Antiques for Sale in Cowan’s Auctions Gunther Granget was one of the best sculptors in the world, famous for his figures of wild animals. Born in Germany, Granget's interest in nature developed when he was a child. The artist accompanied his father in studies of the land and often drew birds and animals. Granget started working for Lorenz Hutschenreuther, a Bavarian porcelain factory, at the age of 24. The artist became one of the best sculptors in the factory and continued to work there until his retirement. Cowan's upcoming auction event features Hutschenreuther bisque porcelain figurines from Granget. One highlight is First Lesson, a figurative group from the series titled Birds of Forest, Field, and Stream. Granget's realistic sculpture depicts a family of ducks in the reeds. The auction also showcases a 20th-century burgundy Lilihan rug with a Persian floral design and separate floral sprays. These single-weft cotton warp rugs were famous for their American Victorian style and quality. Also on display are John James Audubon's engraving of a Bonaparte flycatcher and 532 Liberty Street by Ohio engraver Davira Fisher. Rounding out the list is sterling silver cutlery set from International Silver Co., Chippendale furniture from Massachusetts, and a Rosenthal tea service.

Product packaging design has always been a great way to convey the message of your brand. In the past year, this practice has become more important than ever before. Here, we’ll share some examples of the biggest corrugated packaging box design trends in 2021 and help you consider which trends your brand should adopt. Packaging Trends in 2021 Some of this year’s most popular product packaging trends include the following:  1. Ultra-Simplistic Designs and Geometry An increasingly popular packaging trend is the use of bold and extremely simple geometric ideas. These geometrical concepts feature the use of expressive colors, clean lines, and sharp angles, giving customers a preview of what the product represents. While this trend may appear subtle at first glance, it’s an effective way to make your product stand out.  2. Front and Center Product or Brand Names Designers in 2021 often choose to make the name of a product — not a logo or illustration — the focal point of their packaging. These designs may feature imaginative lettering that draws attention to the name of the product. The names on this type of packaging design are art in themselves and give the entire design a unique look. When a consumer sees this type of packaging, they know exactly what the name of the product is and what it’s used for. If you’re a product-focused business and want to increase awareness of your brand, you may want to consider adopting this trend. This type of design relies on strong typography that is able to carry the entire aesthetic of your brand. Any other elements of this design serve merely to help the product’s name stand out.  3. Color Blocking has been used in the packaging industry for a long time. In 2021, it has taken on a new appearance that features distinctive color combinations, textures, and variations in block weight and shape. Whereas color blocking of the past was characterized by its straight-edged boxes that form clean lines and perfect grids, color blocking in 2021 is unbalanced, uneven, dappled, and freckled. In other words, it feels organic and real. 4. Recyclable and Eco-Friendly Boxes Another thing consumers have been looking for in recent years is eco-friendly packaging. In 2021 as the continued COVID-19 pandemic has led to an explosion in single-use plastic, this need for environmentally friendly packaging has become more urgent. Consumers understand this urgency, with some reports suggesting that nearly three-quarters of consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable packaging.
