I wanted to play along too - this was fun. I think I'll teach my little cousins this cute idea!

Your eye collage is great! Totally reminded me of the one I made the summer before college. I put it up on the side of my closet - everyone would walk by and see it (if the door was open) and a lot of people thought it was freaky too. I'd tell people there were celebrity eyes included - so it became a bit of a guessing game too.

3  Re: HELP!! 3 crafty days till father's day in Father's Day by Jenguin on: June 20, 2004 11:21:45 PM
My father's day gift went off pretty well. My father collects ball markers (usually they have the golf course's name on it, some kind of snazzy detail, etc) and I noticed he just had them placed on his golf ball frame/shelf. You couldn't see them very well and his collection was growing.

Using a record album frame, 'make your own corkboard' corkboard squares, black foamcore, some ribbon, and a small (lame) painting job -- voila, I made him a framed ball marker board.

Cutting the foamcore to use as a mat frame around the corkboard.

See? Also cut the corkboard to fit within the foamcore frame.

Yup. It fit!

Covering up the edges with a green ribbon. Also, painted in the corner of the corkboard portion. Let it dry before you put the ribbon on. I also used a gloss coat over the acrylic - it just looked way too dry on the corkboard.

Finished product.

I also added a second corkboard square to the back because some of the markers have longer pins and would need the thicker back.

I made my magnets and gave them to a couple of family members for Christmas. Everyone was touched and ooh & ahhed over the creative idea.

I put them in small tin buckets (from Michaels), filled them with some candy, wrapped it in tissue paper and a clear 'goodie bag' (cut short), and tied 'em with colorful ribbon and made some homemade tags.

I still have a ton to make, but they shall have to wait awhile. They were fun!

(Btw, I used the cabochons from Tap Plastics)
