Floral Vans | Always Rooney

I would never have thought to use iron on transfers on a pair of Vans - but they look amazing! The perfect ‘Summer shoes’ to slip on and get going in. As soon as I saw these I had the perfect floral images in mind to make my own pair, but all you need to do is either google image search ‘floral pattern’ or have a search on Pinterest.


Dave Hakkens writes about his “Memo Blocks”: 

I always have little pieces of paper and post-it’s laying around my desk. Filled with messages, to do lists and reminders. It’s messy and a waste of paper…

This little block can collect these things on one central place. Write it on with a whiteboard marker and wipe it of when it’s done.

It’s designed in a way that you can make one yourself, using materials around your house. Old cardboard is used for building the shape. Old plastic bags, sheet protectors or foil is used as whiteboard surface and some tape/glue to connect everything.

I made 3 different models, they can be downloaded with the instructions, for free!
