Hey Peeps, hover and Pin this image! 

My 30 Day Creative Challenge is designed to boost your creativity, get your hands moving and make your brain happy! I challenge you to set aside just 30 minutes (or less!) per day, every day in November to make something, to form creativity as one of your daily habits.

For more info about the Challenge, why you should join in and how to do it, check out the main 30 Day Creative Challenge post.

Remember, you can join in with todays prompt, or work on your own project, it can be whatever you like! Just remember to post a photo and tag it with #makers30days on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook! Have a look at what everyone else has going on, like and comment on pics to encourage the community =)


Paper Gemstones are a really easy way to add a pop of colour to any space of your home, or of course use as awesome party decorations! You can find geometric net diagrams for your shapes all over the internet, I found mine here.

You will need

✚ Coloured Paper

✚ Scissors

✚ Glue

What to do

Step one ⋙ Print out the 3D shape net diagram onto your coloured paper

Step two ⋙ Cut out and fold along the lines

Step three ⋙ Use glue or sticky tape to stick it all together! It looks best if you stick the flaps to the inside of the 3D shape, but this can be a little tricky.
