DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!
Theme for this time is:
Origami Cards From Tissue Boxes
Sometimes you just want to create something yourself and what would be easier than to create something from materials you already have. This simple tutorial shows you how to make beautiful origami cards from tissue boxes. Tutorial itself is really easy and doesn't take you a lot of time, while giving you a nice end result. Perfect way to try some crafting before moving on to bigger things.

Bjork Swan Dress
This is a little bit harder tutorial to execute, if not more than that but it does give you some awesome inspiration if nothing more. In this tutorial you can see how to create something as awesome as Bjork's swan dress. According to the author it took her somewhere around 72 hours but the end result is quite amazing. Unfortunately this tutorial itself isn't that detailed but at least it's awesome to see the end result.

Drip Painted Pottery
This is another great and easy tutorial to follow when you haven't done anything like this before. Basically only thing you have to know before this is how to hold a paintbrush and apply paint. In this tutorial you will learn how to transform your regular flower pot to something much cooler and current. And not only is it easy to make, but also much cheaper than other similar projects.

Crochet Starting Chain
This crochet tutorial is as basic as you can get with it, taking you maximum of one minute to learn by following the tutorial provided in a link below. However saying that it is basic doesn't mean that it isn't good. I still remember when I had to take crafting classes in my school, and this was one of the things I had to learn. A must for people who want to start with crochet.

This is fifth and last tutorial for this time but probably my favorite of them all. In this tutorial you will learn how to make different kinds of paper flowers to make a whole bouquet. A awesome crafting exercise for yourself or a sweet present for someone you love.
