She could glue them to either a plain mirror or even picture frames.  Grin

Well phooey....I did more research and seems that the ones I thought were clay are actually made from rubber.  Well scratch that..........

Thanks for all your advice Diane.  I will definitely keep in mind the AA idea though. Smiley

Time for a new idea.  *sigh*

Oooooo...Thanks Diane!! I had no idea it wouldnt stick to Armor All and we have plent of that!!  Smiley

This is what I was thinking about.  If this link doesnt work, just google Amazon Key Covers and it should come up.  I think these are made of plastic though and I wouldnt have the first clue of using something like that.  I really could shoot myself for not buying one.  They were so cute!!!

Hi all  Grin  I have a question.  Im not sure if anyone has seen the key toppers that are out there.  They are covers for you keys so you know which key is which *like a house for a house key...etc*.  I saw some in a hot spot tourist gift shop and should have bought one as a guide.  I think it was either made of plastic *which would snap over a key* or polymer clay.  My question is if I was to make one out of clay, how would I make it to fit over the key?  Huh It needs to slide down over it, so when baking how do I keep the cover from collapsing on itself?  I dont want to bake it onto the key, that would be permanent.  Im pretty sure that I could poke a hole in the top so when it goes over the key the key chain can be put through both the cover and the key.  Im just confused on how to keep the cover from collapsing.  Undecided Thanks!!

Yep they are glass ornaments.....but like other gift project ideas I have had, husby decided on a different gift idea...LOL.  I do very much appreciate your advice in case I decide to do something else of this nature.  I just had some *cheap* glitter glue on hand and thought I could use it somehow.

We went with food.........LOL!!!!

Merry Christmas to ya!!!  Grin

Hiya!  I am bought some clear ornaments to put the names of all the kids *both sides* in the family for the parents for Christmas.  I got one side down with purchased stickers.  However...........the other side has 5 kids and 9 grandkids. If I was to buy all those stickers, I would have tons left over. *Sorry I digress*.  My question is:  I bought the full sheet Avery shipping label sheets and was wondering if I was to print out the names and then use glue glitter to fill the pattern in, should I seal them somehow so the glitter doesnt rub/fall off? And if so..what kind of sealant?  I was thinking of filling them in with the glue glitter, sealing them, then cutting the letters out.  Does this sound like the right course of action??  I was going to paint the names on...but that didnt turn out to well *sigh*.  Thanks for your help!!

Super cute!!!   Grin


How did you get the paint to stick?  I bought clear ornaments to put names on for the parents and in-laws.  I got my stickers to use as a guide, and when I started painting with the acrylic paint, it was like more I brushed on, the more the brush was wiping it off!  I finally said the heck with it and quit...LOL!  Everywhere I have looked, directions say to use acrylic......but its not working for me.  Thanks!

Thanks Metal!  At least that gives me more info than I had Smiley  I looked at a website for a local rock hound group and found one. But the website hadnt been updated since either 2007 or 2008, so I thought maybe they disbanded or something and there was no email addresses for contacts on the page anyway.  I may just hold on to it in the natural state it is in for a while.  Maybe something will pop up.  Thanks again for the info!

Im not sure if this is the right forum....but here goes Smiley  We spent a long weekend with some friends in the mountains of NC several weeks ago and the wife gave me an amethyst stone she found mining.  Unfortunately (not sounding ungrateful...I love it!!!), she gave it to me on Sunday morning before we left and I didnt have the time to seek out a gem cutter.  Does anyone have any clue on where I should I start to find someone that can help me.  I dont want to leave it or mail it to just anyone.  Can it be just polished?  Its a good size piece in its raw state.  I just have no idea where to begin looking.  I live in Middle TN and have no luck even finding a gem and mineral show coming locally.  If anyone could help, I sure would appreciate it!!  Thanks!!

Maybe I just have cheap card stock.  I tried again yesterday only on half the sheet and it still shriveled and wouldnt lay flat when folded over.  I have to venture to the store today so maybe there is better quality card stock out there.  I will double check what Im using and see if there is a sturdier product out there.  Thanks for your help April!    Grin
