Steampunk Weekend DIY

This weekend I’m going to play a little game called “get something accomplished before binging on House of Cards.”  Its a motivator that works!

If you too are looking to accomplish something creative, here are some fun Steampunky DIY projects.

Mousetrap Message Clips
We have chalkboard paint on a door to pass notes to one another and keep lists.  The one thing missing from this method of passing notes? The mild threat of breaking a finger.  This blog is amazing and the message clips are adorably steampunky.

Make Paper Look Old

I would love to run a DnD campaign with props one day and using old paper to relay messages via cool scrolls would be amazing.
