2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HOW TO: matchbox buildings (or desk caddy) on: August 09, 2012 11:46:31 AM
Hello guys! I'm going to teach you how to make a matchbox building. This will serve as a container for those push pins, paper clips, staples, and other small stuff cluttering your desktops. Smiley




You will need:


- 4 big matchboxes
- cardstock of your choice (not shown)
- glue
- scissors
- ruler
- paint
- pencil and fine point pen


1. Glue the 4 matchboxes together.



2. Measure the height and width of your new structure using your ruler.


3. You can opt to paint the matchbox to make hide the rough edges and the markings on the boxes. Set aside to dry.


4. Design and draw your building on cardstock using the measurements you got earlier. I did mine using pencil first then fine-point pen. Erase the pencil lines.


5. Once the boxes are dry, paste your building drawing onto your boxes and VIOLA! A nice little caddy for your desktop. Make a few more and you can now build your own city!


You'll end up with four compartments, ham hams and cat are not included. Wink


Oh yeah, I also did a Tim Burton inspired building. My version of German expressionism art. Haha!


Enjoy!! Smiley

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / photo transfers: what did i do wrong...?? on: July 13, 2008 05:05:24 AM

hello it's me again!  Cheesy

i just did my 1st ever transfers. and here comes the questions........

Exhibit A (oh this is actually a photo embed... i think)

http://images.prismism.multiply.com/image/2/photos/upload/300x300/SHnaUQoKCDIAACrXmBE1/DSC00252.JPG?et=6O97CwBDdZdLM%2CFsZ73sag&nmid=0

-- first i did was place the image on the clay then TLS all over it. but it moved when i transferred it to the baking pan so i decided to put TLS under the photo as well. after baking, some parts were sticking nicely to the clay but on one side was raised as well as the middle portions (these did not stick well to the clay)

Exhibit B

http://images.prismism.multiply.com/image/1/photos/upload/300x300/SHnbOAoKCDIAAEdvUAk1/DSC00248.JPG?et=RwBRU5DZG09i%2BlYJUKQ91g&nmid=0

-- you can see the white blotches there. eeek. this is an inkjet transfer using iron transfer paper. im also concerned with that "paper" that doesn't come off... is that supposed to stay there (see the edges)? i got the backing paper alright but this one's a bit difficult so i didn't bother taking it off. hmmm.. just looks weird... dont know if i did the right thing...

heeeeellppp...  Embarrassed
