1871  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's a good way to learn about paper and bookmakingtechniques? on: June 27, 2007 09:48:32 AM
I was a camp counselor a few years ago, and I took the girls to a local paper company where they offered tours. They also offered buckets of pulp for sale so when we went back to camp the girls and I could make some paper ourselves.

Maybe ask a moderator to move it?

I bet you could find some vinyl faux leather inthe trims at a fabric & craft store like JoAnn. It may be split down the back so you may want to glue or sew it shut. The watch face, chain & charms can be found in the jewelry & bead section of a craft store.

1874  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: weave bracelet!! can someone HELP??? on: June 26, 2007 06:31:01 AM
This looks like a single-needle type of weaving, like a variation on a daisy chain stitch. I'd look at the Bead Fantasies series of books or Beadwork Creates: Bracelets for the how-to instructions. I know i've seen it somewhere before!

Thanks, all. I will try to get a picture up of the bracelet on.

I had another idea for these, especially if you have a lot of them. If you know someone with little kids, you could take 9 or 10 and put numbers on the outside and a picture of that many objects, or miniature objects in resin, on the inside to teach counting. Or you could us 26 of them to make an alphabet with pictures or miniature objects that start with the letter on the inside.

If you are going to be wire-wrapping beads as dangles, I'd recommend chain-nose (aka flat-nose) pliars, round-nose pliars, and wire cutters. You can buy head pins in the jewelry supplies. Then put the beads on them, making sure to leave enough to make your loop. Use the flat nose pliars to make a 90 degree bend in the wire about 1/8" above the top bead, then make your loop by grasping the wire above the bend with your round nose pliars and twisting the wire around i side of the tool. Then reposition your hold on the loop, and wrip the wire around itself 2 or 3 times just above the top bead. Trim as close as you can and use pliars to push the end of the wire down against the wrapped part. If this is confusing you can probably find instructions with pictures inthe back of a bead magazine or at about.com. Good luck!

Glue strong magnets to the back, put labels on the front (maybe decoupage or somehow decorate) put spices in them and stick them to the frige.
1879  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help, which beadwork magazine i should choose on: June 22, 2007 11:15:41 AM
I like Beadwork the best. It's got more designs and ideas that appeal to me. Bead & Button is good, too, but some of the designs lack sophistication and/or seem dated to me. If you're just into bead stringing, there's a magazine for that, and another for wire. One thing I like to do is visit a Barnes and Noble with my sketchbook and get inspiration by flipping through ALL the bead magazines. Then if there's one that has instructions I need I'll buy that one. Naughty, I know.

I plan to make a Curiously Beaded Tin I saw in a beading book. They recommend a double-sided tacky craft tape to stick on the (pre-strung) beads. That would probably work with yarn, too, especially if you wanted to glaze it with a glue when you were all done. You could use and awl, toothpick or similar tool to position the yarn as you go.
