Get your free copy of The Happy Holidays Guide to DIY


I can’t believe its finally here! The eBook I’ve been talking about for the last few days, and secretly working on for the last few weeks, is now available for download absolutely free! Its my gift to you to say thanks for being so awesome this year, and helping papernstitch get where it is today!

It is called the The Happy Holidays Guide to DIY: 8 Easy Holiday Tutorials. And as the name suggests, it is packed with eight festive, step-by-step holiday projects – including many brand new, never before seen diysย (gift ideas, packaging and wrapping ideas, and holiday decor), plus two bonus gift ideas for a total of ten tutorials in all!

Here’s a few examples of the projects shared in the book…

If you love diy (and the holidays) as much as I do, you will love this eBook! The projects have been designed with simplicity and speed in mind. So even the most inexperienced crafter can follow along and recreate these projects on their own, in just a few hours. The book itself makes a great gift for diyers as well.

Very excited to read this!

I got the email and it says “Once you click the activation link below, you’ll be redirected to the download link for The Happy Holidays Guide to DIY eBook” but it is not redirecting me to the link.

Am I supposed to get redirected to the link or will the link be emailed to me?

HI Amanda. Sorry about that. My mail service is acting screwy (of course on the day I launch the book this would happen). So, I’ve updated the post with the download link. Once you’ve entered your email address and clicked the “click here” button underneath, you’ll be downloading the book. So sorry about any trouble that caused anyone else. But it should be working now.

I love the lace idea though, too. So charming!

Hi Brittni,

I’m also having problems with the download. I tried it when you first launched it and just again today (is it still available?). I’d still love to download it if possible. I’ve signed up as requested but it’s just taking me to a blank page. Please let me know if I can get it some other way? Cheers, and hope you had a very Happy Christmas!

Heather | December 28th, 2010 at 12:03 pm

Hi Heather. I just sent you an email with the direct download link. I don’t know why the download wouldn’t work for you, but its fine for many others. Of course, if anyone else has a problem with the download, just leave a comment below. Thanks!

papernstitch | December 29th, 2010 at 2:36 am

Hi, just catching up on some blog reading since before the holidays and found this post via Creature Comforts. I signed up and confirmed the subscription, but when I try to download the e-book, I get a blank page. Any ideas? Many thanks for your generosity!

Sherri S. | December 30th, 2010 at 10:44 pm

Hi Sherri. Depending on how fast your internet connection is, it may take several minutes for the PDF to fully download. So, it make look like a “blank” or grey empty page at first. Once the download is complete, you’ll be able to view the full diy guide. If you still have a problem after trying again, please email me at brittni(at)papernstitch(dot)com.

papernstitch | December 30th, 2010 at 11:01 pm

Hi Brittni,

I tried to download your ebook with Firefox but it didn’t work, so I tried Internet Explorer instead and it worked just fine. Thank you very much!
