1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Flower Wreath on: February 23, 2014 08:59:02 AM
I was delighted with how fast and easy it was.  We had a lot of snowdays in the last couple weeks, so that helped!

I asked my friend who DOES know how to crochet to make this for me and she said, "Make it yourself!" Well okay, then.  I do know how to knit a little, and I can sew, so that helped.  
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flower Wreath on: February 21, 2014 07:38:49 AM


Colors are a little over-saturated, here.  See flowers below.


My first crocheted project!

I was inspired by Attic24.
http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2012/12/christmas-wreath-ta-dah.html.

I used flowers, buttons, and satin ribbon.



The yarn is Lion bonbons brights. I used only 1 package of this yarn!  The wreath form is a 12" wire form.  I knitted a cover from some scrap yarn I already had.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Conversation Heart Circle Card on: February 09, 2014 05:31:43 PM

This Valentine card collapses flat.  When the card is open the ribbons tie together to form the circle of hearts.

This is excellent! 

Hmmm it could be done in Froebel weaving--where instead of white strips, you would cut slits in the white paper as needed and weave the green strips through.   

Like this space invader one I made awhile back:

Okay, now I have to try it with your shamrock!

Can you be more specific what the issue is?  

I found it worked better if I cut the two halves apart at the fold and left a little gap between them.  Otherwise the card tends to wrinkle when you try to close it.

Are you thinking that the striped paper is cut and glued on top of the white?  It's not--it's just a backing paper that shows through the cut outs.

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Junk Mail Stellated Icosahedron on: July 03, 2012 05:13:22 PM


I was casting about for a patriotic project and somehow came up with this red, white and blue item.  It's based on a design made out of drinking straws, but I made my own paper tubes from junk mail. Everything is tied together with embroidery floss.

The red tubes are 3" and the blue ones are 4".
The finished size is about 10" in diameter.



I used instructions from a couple places including an old LIFE magazine (scroll down to page 85):
http://books.google.com/books?id=_koEAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA85&ots=3lfe_iNqqS&dq=Christmas%20Stars%20from%20Soda%20Straws%20life&pg=PA86#v=onepage&q=Christmas%20Stars%20from%20Soda%20Straws%20life&f=false

Here are some pictures I took while I was assembling the inner icosahedron.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Lamb and Bunny Pop Up Card on: March 20, 2012 01:48:58 PM



I started with a free cutting file from MTCSCAL efiles and turned it into a window style pop up card for Easter.

Here's the source file:
http://scale-files.blogspot.com/2010/03/easterwhat-does-it-really-mean.html

Free svg, pdf, dxf cutting files here:
http://extremecards.blogspot.com/2012/03/lamb-and-bunny-window-pop-up-card.html

Cut the file.  Crease the small horizontal folds (on the sides) first.  Valley fold the top long horizontal crease, mountain fold the next one down, valley fold the bottom one.  Trim and glue into a base card.
