23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Interior plant gardening kit IMG HEAVY on: June 08, 2008 04:06:51 PM
Hey folks!
So I took a little canvas tote that had some ad on it and sewed some pockets into it. Its a gift for  friend who has always wanted a garden but since she moves a lot she cant really have one yet. So I thought that having house plants could be the closest to a garden that she can have are interior plants or maybe a little interior garden! So I made a gardening bag with many pockets, some gardening tools, a book on house plants, 3 squirrel figurines for the pots, some planting pots and a

Enough talk, here's the pictures:

Hoped she likes it!!!!!

So I had all these pictures of graffiti I had taken for a project, but no use for them now. So I made a collage, cut some pieces out and glued them on some cardboard from a package I received recently. After many hours of arranging and cutting pictures, here's the final product:

25  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES / $7 Lamp/ Fish Tank crazyness! (PIC OBESE!) on: May 04, 2008 11:49:08 AM
Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by, here’s my lamp/ fish tank:

One lamp, 3 ways of using it!
Complete:


Just the top on:


Fish-less:

EDITED TO ADD TUTORIAL
So I wanted a cool lamp for my mini desk but felt totally bad about  having to move Mr. Moncho (the fish) from the desk. What to do? Make a lamp that is also a fish tank! So I hit the dollar store and found a box of popsicle sticks (1,000 sticks) = $4!!! And  a plastic container = $1! And some LED lights (not pictured) =$1, Bamboo skewters= $1. Total spent =$7
plastic container:

popsickle sticks:


So I began staking the "tower" of sticks until I reached the height I liked:

The bottom of the tower was completely covered with sticks, but I forgot to take a picture Tongue
Then I filled the tall tower of sticks with colored Christmas lights I had around:

Checked if the lights work:

Now to "cover" the top, must be very sturdy and hard since the fish tank will be on top of this. I left a little triangle open to let the light come out into the tank. Also the cable of the lights must be covered in electrical tape (black thing) :

Then start making the little tower that will be on top of the fish tank. After it was finished I started working on the inside. There has to be a division of where the lights from the top are and where the fish tank starts. I made a rectangle of sticks:

The glued it to the bottom of the "top" and kept building the tower up:

When It was tall enough I placed the LED lights inside and closed up the top completely. Heres the top being closed:

Now it was just a mater of gluing the bamboo sticks to the bottom of the "top" to be able to suspend it over the fish tank:

Close up:

So Mr. Moncho was placed in the plastic container:

The lamp was put together:

the top is easily removed to feed Mr.Moncho and to clean the tank (which is removable too.
Hope it made sense  Grin

I was so inspired by this project http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222282.0that I had to make my own coasters. They are a bit different since I left a blank and filled it with brown beads:

Sorry for the crappy pics! Tongue

For a swap I bought some cheapo' diaries, and decided to change the cover to make it more in theme with the swap. Heres the finished project:

How it was made:
Start with a cheap diary:

Using paint make a sheet full of images, in this case they are Alfons Muchas artworks:


Then cover the diary with glue. Stick the paper, making sure to leave no bubbles. Now cover the whole diary with contact paper to make it waterproof. And viola! Enjoy your new cool diary.
