71  embroidered flower cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by kategirl on: July 01, 2004 07:38:02 PM
here is my latest addiction, embroidered cards.

they're really easy.  I just cut light blue cardstock in half and then folded to make quarter sized cards.  I drew a flower on lightly in pencil, then used my needle to punch holes along the scetch to sew through.  lightly erase the scetch so that you can just barely see it.  I then just stitched the flowers.  (I think I used what is called a back running stitch?)  to finish it off nicely, you can just cut a piece of plan white copy paper to be slightly smaller than the inside of the card.  fold in half, and glue into the inside of the card by running a glue stick along the very left edge.

72  embroidered fairy - first project in Needlework: Completed Projects by kategirl on: July 01, 2004 07:32:33 PM
here is a fairy I did on a pillow case for a friend.  it only took me a couple hours this afternoon.  it's my first real project, and I think it turned out alright.  the picture is a little faded, but you get the idea:

I used a simplified version of one of the paper doll fairies on this site:

73  girly silhouette cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by kategirl on: January 31, 2004 11:35:03 AM
here are some girly silloette cards that I made using a font I found here http://www.anzwers.org/free/tackorama/clipart.htm
I just made it huge and printed out the cards on some astrobrights card stock I've had for years (I bought it for a school project four years ago).

it's actually neon pink, neon green, and neon orange, but the scan didn't do the colors very well.  and the girls are actually not all bumpy.

I give them as presents sometimes, a set of 12 different girls.  I also have some math/geeky cards that I'll have to scan and add for you guys.

edit:  hehe, now I spelled silhouette right...

74  a really simple notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by kategirl on: January 31, 2004 11:29:46 AM
I know that I saw this idea for binding somewhere, and I thought it was here, but when I tried to find it I couldn't.  therefore, here's mine!

this is a quarter size notebook.  I just folded 5 sheets of paper in half the "hamburger" way.  I made 5 of these little mini books.  then I cut all 5 books in half, leaving me with 10 quarter sized books with the opening on the shorter end.

I made two covers the same size as the pages, using some cardboard rescued from the trash closet and some leftover kraft paper I had.

then I punched holes in all of the parts, punching one side with the end hole of the paper puncher, then flipping it over to get a matching hole the same distance from the top.  that way everything was all lined up and the holes were even with the top and bottom.

I cut a chopstick the right length and grabbed a new hairtie.  then I just threaded the hairtie down through the top holes, around the back, and up the bottom holes, keeping it in place in the front with the chop stick.

I've made about 5 of these so far.  they're really easy, really cheap, and oh-so cute.  (it's a lot cuter in real life; I had to scan it.)
