• Here’s one of Curbly’s excel­lent round-ups: 10 DIY Paint Chip Art Projects. (‘Paint chips’ are what American folk call ‘those col­our chart thingies you get when you’re try­ing to choose paint col­ours’ – for some reas­on they feel their term is snap­pi­er).

Hiné Mizushima makes some frankly ador­able felt fig­ures, often includ­ing octo­podes and squid. You really should take a look.

• Here’s a neat tutori­al from Mini-eco; 8‑bit pop-up cards. There are full instruc­tions and tem­plates, and the space invader is par­tic­u­larly cool.

• It’s been a while since we’ve fea­tured Lego here, but here’s an amaz­ing set of British birds made by Thomas Poulsom (found via Colossal).

• Also on Colossal, this post has some really fun examples of street art; I par­tic­u­larly like the tentacles, of course.

• And finally, Nathan Shields makes detailed and funny pan­cakes for his chil­dren, includ­ing mar­ine life, dog breeds, pro­to­zoa, fam­ous build­ings and more. Not likely to be found on Etsy any time soon because they’ve already been eat-sied (do you see what I did there?).
