Craft Challenge #30 – Cozies WITH Irony
|Share the love...||
This month’s challenge was to create a cozy. Not just any cozy, but a cozy with irony!
Turtlelove really captured the theme of this challenge! I can’t think of anything that needs to be kept warm LESS than an ice cube! And actually putting them into a glass was the greatest! More than one person was left literally laughing out load.

Turtlelove is the winner of a copy of the great new craft book by Jennifer Perkins called The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girl’s Guide to Handmade Jewelry.
If you prefer your jewelry subtle and serious, you might want to go ahead and set this book back on the shelf. However, if kitschy accessories made with a wink and a smile are your cup of tea, this book will have you on the edge of your chair.
The Naughty Secretary Club is packed with more than 50 kitschy-secretary-themed jewelry projects, plus lots of quirky sidebars covering hot topics such as office romance and the best secretary theme songs to listen to on your lunch break. You’ll learn how to use your office supplies in a whole new way – did you know standard office fare, like binder folders and shredded junk mail, makes craftalicious jewelry? Plus, author Jennifer Perkins will teach you how to turn almost anything into a charm, including plastic gnome cake toppers, doll furniture and cast-off hotel keys.
Whatever your day job, you can be a Naughty Secretary in spirit – and in style. So cancel your afternoon meetings, take a break from watching the clock and send yourself a memo to whip up a new paperclip necklace just in time for happy hour!
And now for the runner’s up!
This project was described by one member as “Dripping in irony… and rick-rack…” Probably one of the best quotes I’ve ever seen on Craftster! To see more photos and project details, visit this link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267338.0
