651  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beads made from the pages of an old calender on: June 28, 2008 11:21:20 PM
It was my friend Ange's birthday celebrations last night and for a gift I gave her this necklace!



I made the beads from the pages of an old calender (2007) that I couldn't bear throwing out because I loved the images (strangely enough I had no issues with cutting the images up into little pieces for beads!). I cut the images into strips - then I rolled the strips up with the use of a trusty chopstick and glue stick. Finally I finished the beads off with a touch of nail varnish for protection and strung them on cord.

I got the "recipe" for the project from an issues of craftzine - yah! Craftzine rocks;)

It's a fantastic book! I've made 3 projects from it so far and my partner thinks I may be a little obsessed with it;)
658  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Chopstick Frame for Chinese Postcard on: June 06, 2008 10:44:34 PM
I recently came home from a trip from China and amongst my purchases was a pack of vintage look Chinese postcards - I knew I wanted to give some of the the postcards a special home.

Just before I left on my trip I had bought Mark Montano's "Big Ass Book of Crafts" which had a project which was a photo frame made of chopsticks.

It seemed like a perfect match - chopsticks & a vintage look Chinese postcard!

Here's the result - by the way it took a LOT of glue!

Yah! Swapping time is all so exciting....I hope my partner gets her stuff soon - but given we live on opposite sides of the world it could take a while...  Sad bummer
