1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Help! How do I fix this picture frame? on: March 21, 2011 06:08:21 PM
I wasn't sure exactly which category this should go in. I hope this was right.

Anyway, I recently came across this picture frame I had decapogued in an art class a few years ago.
It was one of those frames that had a little wooden "stilt" on the back to hold it up. However, it had already broken off by the time I came across it. I was really inspired by all the clippings I found, so I wound up using it anyway.

But now, I have a dilemna.
There is absolutely no way I can hang this frame, and I am pretty much out of ideas as to what I can do to make it functional. I wanted to eventually sell it on my etsy store, but as it is, I can't sell someone a picture frame that won't stand on it's own and can't be hung up.

Back w/ half my face cropped & bad hair:


I had thought at one I could unscrew part of the back of the frame, and slip something around the two screws that would be sturdy enough to hold the frame/won't fray or fall apart.
However, I'm not sure what kind of material would suffice?

If anyone has any ideas on how I can make this frame hang/stand up on it's own I would really appreciate it!
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / find a whole bunch of crap & have no clue what to do with it. on: August 02, 2008 11:34:39 AM
hey Smiley after lurking this site i got really inspired and decided to go sifting through all the crap in my basement for ideas/material.

i found a lot of stuff, but now im just like.. i have no clue what to do with any of it.  Tongue

so i was hoping for some support   Smiley


some of the things i found:

- bucket of seashells ( i collected them at the beach YEARS ago and forgot all about them lol)
- 4 golf balls
- shit load of marbles
- chalk
- yahtzee, upwords
- dice
- lamp
- two handbags
- TONS of old cassettes, vhs, dvds/cds
- there was more but i cant remember what, cause i didnt feel like lugging it all upstairs.

so..
i think i can come up with a few ideas for the cassettes & videos. & i might have seen a thread around here somewhere that had something to do with marbles.
but otherwise, does anyone have any ideas?  Huh
