1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Matchbook Notebook on: April 11, 2009 12:00:35 AM
What a cute idea.  How did you keep the paper held in there?  Even though in the US scrapbook paper is readily available I will still buy wrapping paper or wall paper because it is cheaper and I will get more use out of it!
Thanks for sharing!

I used a No. 35 stapler (26/6 size). I can staple up tp 20 pieces of paper that way.
The normal No. 10 staplers can only manage up to 10 pieces.

I stapled it first before glueing the wrapping paper onto the white construction paper so the staple won't show. Thanks for the comment. Smiley

Oh wow. I'd be delighted if I were the recipients. Mind me asking what's being put inside?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Matchbook Notebook on: April 10, 2009 02:00:51 AM
So every easter I get small gifts from my friends at church and every year I feel guilty for not preparing some.

So this year I planned ahead and decide to give matchbook notebooks to my friends!

I basically used wrapping paper and stuck it to the main body of the notebook. Scrapbooking paper is expensive here in Singapore! Mainly because they're all imports.

They're a mixture of graphed and blank papers, about 15 sheets in one.

Here's the closer look at the graphed paper.

I know its not very Easter-y but I like making practical gifts.
I've yet to write Happy Easter on the inside but I think I've got time. Smiley
So the pink ones goes to the girls and all the blue ones to the guys. Obviously. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First Post Here :) Laptop bag/case (Image heavy) on: April 10, 2009 01:50:20 AM
I hope this is the right place to post this up.

I stayed up the whole night to complete this laptop case. My dad kept asking me to go and sleep but when I get really excited about a project I just have to finish it even if it means sacrificing sleep.

Its inspired by http://www.redmaloo.de/

I took a crash course in sewing here, basically learning two stitches. I only know how to do a running stitch. Tongue

Here it is closed with my laptop nestled inside cozily. Smiley

A side view, with my imperfect stitches.

I used velcro to seal it up. Adhesive-backed velcro. Bought it at about 30 cm long? I cut it down to size.

And.. This is how it looks opened up!

Haha! I love how this opens up. I'm looking forward to school just to show off this!

So basically I close it by folding in the side flaps then the longer bottom piece and then the top!
Total cost for this project? Singapore $6! All materials bought from my favourite shop, Daiso Japan!

The chocolate brown felt is 64 cm by 64 cm (25"X25") and is about 2 mm thick. and the warm pink felt is 70 cm by 50 cm(27"X 19.5") and 1 mm think. Both are polyester but different to touch. The only reason why I got the 70 by 50cm pink felt was because they didn't have the colour in the 64cm by 64cm size.

So I had to do abit of trimming to get them equally sized.

As I said the velcro is about 30 cm long and is also $2!

I can't wait to go back to school and get asked where I bought this. Then I can proudly say I made it myself.
(My school students can be so consumer-ised and own expensive branded stuff)

Thanks for looking!

Oh wow! that's really really amazing! It must have taken some quite time to line the papers up specially round those squares and cut it all up. How'd you do it? Smiley

I really admire this cos of how neat it looks. EVEN the back cover. Neatness in my journals eludes me still.

Here's one for beads, I love thisc place,

Its at Holland V, [url:http://beadsatwork.com]Beads @
Work[/url].Its at 25D Lorong Liliput above Subway.

There's a ribbon and yarn shop at the shopping centre there also but I can't remember the exact name of the building, its above cold storage on the 2nd floor. If you've been there, I guess you know what I'm talking about.

 Its really small and easy to miss.
