As creative people, we love to learn new skills and try out different crafts. In fact, sometimes we get a little carried away with the number of hobbies we have, to the point where we could really do with an entire separate room for our craft stuff (tell me this isn’t just me?). And if you do have your own craft room, I’m sooooo jealous of you 😉

So, bearing in mind how much we like to try new things, I thought I’d create a post dedicated to some of the best and most interesting tutorials I’ve found. I’ve chosen posts from some of my favourite blogs (ahem, and some of my own posts) to put together this resource for you.

The #GetCreativeChallenge is a free 30-day challenge to help you get more creative in your everyday life, delivered straight to your inbox! (From BirchAndButton.com)

I had a lot of fun putting this post together, and I’ve discovered some projects that I absolutely want to try at some point soon. I hope you feel the same and find something to try from this collection, but if you feel like I’ve missed something out, please let me know.

Also, please feel free to share your favourite tutorials in the comments below. I want there to be something for everyone here!
