1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / (Pictures Added) bookbinding and microsoft word = compatable?? on: December 03, 2006 04:38:24 PM
Hi there,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with making a book using Microsoft Word?  I want to compile some of my boyfriend's writing for him for Christmas.  I am planning on using regular sized paper (8 1/2 X 11") and folding it in two, as I would like to bind it together afterwards using a coptic stitch method.  I was thinking I could use the landscape format for printing but am having a couple of problems.  I would like to use both sides of the paper to make it look 'professional'.  I will have to re-feed the paper after printing, but is there anyway that I can use a 2-column setting and only print one column, from right or left, on my paper?   Thanks and I hope this wasn't too confusing...
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Decoration for my Ma on: November 22, 2004 03:02:38 PM
Wasn't sure where to post this, its just a lil decoration I made for my Mom for Christmas...As usual my picture sucks...the wood isn't nearly as white as it looks in the picture, its more worn out looking, something to do with my flash...I cut the heart out of this tin-like craft stuff I got at the Sally Ann but I've seen it at craft stores and I got these bells on the discount table at a sewing store? and i used bailing twine to tie them. I nailed the heart to the board (ouch that sounds so dramatic)...I haven't attached anything to the back to hang it with yet thats why my hand is in the pic....I just used stuff I had around the house and came up with this...

i'm keeping my eyes open for more belts to make some more of these for Christmas presents.  They are really easy - i just cut the belt with regular scissors and got heavy duty snaps and followed the directions on the back of them.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / One Saved Tee on: October 14, 2004 06:24:31 AM
So yeah after a few good experiences with stenciling for friends I went out and bought an expensive
shirt to stencil for myself...that was my first mistake...the fabric paint totally did not take to the super softness of this tee...what a mess...so to cover it up and still make the tee wearable I cut out a square of fabric big enough to cover up my botched stencil and cut out these lil birdies..and sewed it all on...i'm still not crazy about it but its better than it was!

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / EASY & QUICK Bookbinding!! (picture heavy) on: October 14, 2004 06:17:20 AM
Here are some little books I've been making...

I made this one for my bf...attached a guitar pick to the cover...and used the envelopes his guitar strings came in as pages (left envelopes in tact)

I was looking for easy and quick ways to do bookbinding...i found one while out shopping...ergh, browsing one day....make three holes in the spine of the book...using a thick string-like material (i used hemp) and a large needle pull the hemp through the middle hole (inside or outside of the book - doesn't matter) and leave an inch or two of hemp....next pull your needle through an adjacent hole and then back through the middle...now repeat on the last hole...when you are finished there should also be about an inch of hemp on the opposite side in which you started....if there is any slack tighten it up...you can kinda of tell from the picture how it should look...the indside looks the same as the outside...eek i hope all that makes sense
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Baby Card on: October 07, 2004 06:01:30 AM
This is a card I made for a friend of mine who just had a baby.  I took a thick piece of pink paper and folded so that each side folds over the center....then i used grommets on the front to tie some ribbon through...on the inside i constructed a little baby outfit with the same material i used for the ribbons...then i made a little clothes hanger out of some wire i had and embroidered the baby's name and date of birth....tadaa...(it looks a bit crooked cuz i hadn't attached it to the card at that point)

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mirror Mosaic on: October 06, 2004 01:52:37 PM
I did these quite awhile ago...I just used a glass cutter and cut up a mirror into different pieces.

For the first picture I used a lantern and glue gunned the pieces to it (not the best idea if you want to USE the lantern because the glue melts and off fall the pieces of mirror!)

For the second one I took a small shadowbox frame and used grout to cover the glass of the frame - sorry about the pic quality.

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / framed fabric on: August 30, 2004 01:44:57 PM
This is pretty basic...I took an old brown and silver frame which I picked up at the Sally-Ann, took out the cheesy 80's print and spray painted it black...then I took the fabric i got in the scraps bin and framed it...Voila!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / first post -- refurbished mirror on: August 15, 2004 04:33:49 PM
This is my first post but I have been lurking around all summer....I love this site and was so excited when I found it!  This is an old mirror I found in my parents baby barn.  It was painted brown.  I sanded it (to paint it white) but decided I liked the look of it sanded so left it as is.  I added a cabinet handle and some hinges --which I got at a local hardware store for like three bucks-- I really like how it turned out.  Its sitting in my parents living room until I return to school in the fall....
