One year old !

Working on maché magazine taught us that we’re not alone.

Our goal for this magazine was to build a space where we could be creative and explore our craft. We didn't monetize our time or launch a readership campaign, we just uploaded our files to the site and sent the link to our moms. A year later, we see how much this project has changed both of our lives. We found like-minded creatives to collaborate with and formed friendships along the way. Thank you to everyone who reads maché. Thank you to the photographers, writers, editors, recipe developers, models, artists, designers and stylists who make maché happen. And thank you maché for being a place to grow. maché delivers anytime, anywhere, at machemag.com. Flip. Click. Enjoy. Heather + Ananda

Place 1/2 cup water in saucepan, add 1/4 cup sugar and bring to a boil over high heat. 3. Stir in 1 tablespoon of finely slivered fresh mint leaves and remove from heat. Let stand for 1 minute. 4.

DREAMCATCHER BACKDROP This jumbo dream catcher makes for a beautiful ceremony backdrop and will be a great keepsake to display in your home. rings or hoops yarn beads feathers

1. Collect rings or hoops of varying sizes; we used craft rings, which you can buy at a local art supply store or get online for more variety of sizes. We also used embroidery hoops, which give you two rings per hoop, as well as a little more depth (due to their thickness) to your finished product. 2. Wrap the rings with your yarn of your choice and create your “catch” as tight or as spaced as you like. Follow illustration. 3. Once the rings are all wrapped and have the inner catcher, you need to lay all the rings out on the floor in a pattern of your liking. Make sure that the rings are touching their adjacent rings so you have a place to tie them together. 4. Using the same color yarn, tie your dream catchers together. We then hung ours on a wall to figure out where to adorn beads and feathers. 5. Using yarn again, we tied dangling pieces along the bottom of the dream catcher installation. Simply thread beads and glue on feathers. Tip: Run a bead of hot glue on the feather and just wrap the yarn around the feather.

thick wire rock paint 1. Use some thick wire (found at any art supply shop) and wrap it around a rock base, trying to balance out your wraps evenly so the stand doesn’t wobble. 2. Give your stand a stem for height and wrap the top into a circle, which enables you to insert an escort/ place card. 3. Paint or decorate your stand however you like.

Make your own! We picked out our favorite fabrics for our pillow tops and purchased brown felt to use for the bottom of the pillow. The brown felt simulated a leather look, which we loved because we didn’t have to break the bank on leather! Using felt on the bottom of the pillow also added durability for outdoor or floor use. The less expensive felt allowed us to splurge on more expensive fabrics and more pillow inserts. We purchased our inserts from pillowsxpress.com, where you can get a great selection of sizes and firmness. Be sure to sew a pocket pillow cover so you can change out your covers with the seasons!

FEATHER STREAMERS This tutorial can be used for virtually any shape (we’ve done it with paper hearts in the past). It’s a super inexpensive and easy way to add a little ‘cute’ to any event. construction paper scissors thread sewing machine

1. Cut a simple feather shape out of construction paper. We cut three different sizes and used the shapes as templates. 2. After cutting out a few dozen feathers in varying colors and sizes, we turned to our sewing machine to string them together. Simply sew a straight line through the center of the feather, and without cutting your thread, continue on to your second feather and so on. 3. Soon you’ll have a threaded string of feathers, then just tape or tie the strings onto a pole and hang your feather backdrop!

FEATHER CHARGER feathers hot glue gun construction paper scissors 1. Lay a plate upside down on a piece of construction paper and trace its shape. 2. Cut a circle about 2 inches shorter than the circle you traced. 3. Use your glue gun to glue feathers around the perimeter of the circle so that when you place your plate on the charger, the feathers are seen. 4. Continue laying feathers for a full and naturallooking charger!

NAPKIN RING plain napkin rings hot glue gun yarn plastic animals 1. We found our plain napkin rings for a dollar at the thrift store and immediately realized their potential for fun! 2. We began by picking up plaincolored yarn and used it to give the rings some texture. Dab a bead of hot glue at the edge of the ring and stick on your yarn piece, then just wrap it around until your ring is completely covered in yarn. Add a dab of glue at the end and you’re set! 3. Pick an animal of your choice and use the hot glue (or clear gorilla glue) to adhere the animal to the yarn.

NAUTICAL ROPE BRACELET 3 feet natural cotton rope 2 end caps 2 small rings 1 hook hot glue gun wire cutters pliers (These are used to open and close the rings, but as long as the rings in this project are small, you can just use your hands.)

1. Measure your wrist by twisting the ropes around it. Don’t make the ropes too long so that bracelet falls off your hand —the length of rings and a hook will add extra centimeters. Cut the ropes. 2. We cut three pieces of rope. You may want to sew your three ropes together at the ends, this will make it easier to place them inside the end cap. 3. Pour glue into the first end cap, stick the ropes into it and press tightly. Be careful if you’re using a metallic end cap like we did, because it might get hot and burn your fingers. Use a glove or a piece of cloth to hold it. 4. Repeat for the other end. 5. Attach the rings to the end cap and place the hook. 6. Voila! Your summer nautical bracelet is ready!skewers, soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.

beauty fix

Smooth Operator Oh, the things we do to bare our bikinis on the beach. Beach season is here! As we maintain our beach bodies, whether it be boosting our workout regimen, getting a spray tan or painting those pretty little toenails, there’s one thing that can’t be skipped: hair removal. There are a range of removal methods —from very temporary to permanent.

SHAVING Shaving and depilatories remove hair at skin level; waxing and tweezing remove hair from the follicle, so it will take longer to grow back. Be aware that shaving and depilatories may cause razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

1 DAY

WAXING With waxing, there’s a possibility of burning or blistering if the wax is too hot, so it’s best to find a professional with proper training. A professional should test the temperature of the wax on the inside of her wrist before applying it to a client’s desired area.

SUGARING Sugaring dates to the ancient Egyptians, who used a mixture of water, sugar and lemon juice to remove hair. The mixture is applied like a wax, but it can be removed with water and is less irritating, which is great for someone with sensitive skin.

NO PAIN, NO GAIN Waxing and sugaring can be best described as pulling a Band-Aid off, though pain level will vary depending on the area. Threading will feel most like tweezing or "plucking." And though electrolysis will create a stinging sensation, it's tolerable even for people with sensitive skin. When it comes to the laser, it might feel like a rubber band snapping the skin.

THREADING If you’re looking for something different, but still want to stick with a temporary method, try threading. Threading is commonly used to shape the eyebrows. It uses 100 percent cotton thread to roll and twist along the surface of the skin to remove the hair from the follicle.

LASER Laser technology is a method of semipermanent hair removal. It impairs the follicle by pulsing a laser beam onto the skin. It will reduce the number of hairs up to 90%. The procedure is offered in dermatology offices and medical spas.

SEMIPERMANENT

ELECTROLYSIS If you’re willing to pay more to be smooth 24/7, try a more permanent solution like electrolysis, which uses electricity to remove hair. Regrowth is likely to be impossible because the papilla at the base of the hair follicle is destroyed.
