1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: INTERCHANGEABLE MUSTACHES...shrinky dinks on: August 06, 2009 12:01:02 PM
Thanks so much for the comments, I'm glad you all like them! 

burntspaghetti:  I just googled mustaches, and found a sheet that had a whole bunch of different ones, and then chose the ones that I could draw best/were the most different.  I just outlined them in sharpie and then filled them in with micron, and different textures.  You can do it!  draft it with pencil on paper first, and then finish off with ink.  If times get real tough you can always print out the mustaches to trace or even trace them right off your computer screen -- I believe in you!

bunnyface:  what about cufflinks?  or a keychain?  boys are hard to craft for, but I'm sure you can find a way to incorporate it!

Okay, so the picture here is not really the best way of explaining this necklace, so I'll try with my words.  Basically I made a nose pendant out of shrinky dinks and attached it to a necklace.  I then made a little wire hook that attached to the bottom of the nose, and on this wire hook you can put each little mustache -- interchangeable mustache necklace!  Here is a pic of the full set together:



I am def planning on making more of these, maybe to sell?  Not sure yet, but I'm loving the shrinky dinks!  I have a few more "dynamic" ideas I'm working on, so hopefully I'll be able to share those too.  I will try to take a picture of this necklace in action and post that for you all, I know it is confusing.  

questions, comments, criticism...all is welcome!  and thanks for looking!

I went on a little mini beading spree.  I saw these beaded bouquets in a beading with wire book that I decided not to buy, but I mentally bookmarked this project to make sometime.  They are supposed to look like little bouquets of flowers.

Here are some close-ups:









What do you think?

Thanks for looking!

Stoledina, I love your plate -- well done!  I esp. love the little scalloped paper -- it looks like fabric/lacey awesomness.  Christephi, best of luck on your list -- I find it helpful to share my lists with a group of people too -- accountability, baby!

I love this July theme!  I feel very summery, and it's just so much fun to make little flower themed x-mas presents.  I saw these little bouquets in some wire beading book somewhere, a book that I didn't buy (oops...) and I quickly memorized the idea!  I made four overall, but only 2 are for x-mas presents, so here they are!



this one is for my girlfriend's mother -- she loves greens, blues, purples, and pins!  PERFECT.



I'm not sure who this one is for -- but I'm sure I'll figure it out -- haha, I seem to be making a ton of "unclaimed" gifts, but I feel like I always have a group of people that I don't know what to get them, so hopefully instead of running to world market I can just go shopping in my craft area in december. 

I hopefully will be finishing a large crochet project, and a fewer smaller crochet projects too, and I have a few more things planned...So hopefully this won't be the last you hear from me this month!

Holy Snikes!  I won!

Haha, that completely makes my day.  I love the July theme, I've already gone on a tiny little crafting spree yesterday, using supplies I already had! Pics to follow. 

Cheers to all!

I also can NOT believe the year is 1/2 over!  CRAZINESS.  Nonetheless, here are the crafts I finished this month...



These are some notecards I made for my girlfriends' little sister.





This is a vase I also made this month -- decoupaged.  I'm not sure who it's for yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out!

Happy crafting everyone!

That bracelet is great!  I also am quite obsessed w/ shrinky dinks... If you put them under something flat and heavy like a big book or notepad while they're still hot and press on it for a few seconds that should help keep them flat.  Hope that helps!
