1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Under the sea matchbox shrine on: September 04, 2013 10:34:47 PM
Hi all,

I am trying to finish this shrine and I'm having trouble coming up with what else I should put in it. As you can see from the picture I have some shells and a message in a bottle. Any ideas what else? I thought of fish, but I don't know how they would look with the octopus  Undecided

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flower Hair Clips on: December 21, 2011 03:10:36 PM
I bought the purple orchids at Claire's for an absurd amount of money knowing I could make it myself, but needed them that night.  So, the days following I did just that.  Basically, I completely take the silk flowers apart and hot glue each layer back together.  Then I glue the leaves on the other side of the clip since the glue doesn't adhere to the metal and I'm too impatient to wait for a glue that would  Wink  Anyway, super easy and fun to make.  Also, the yellow daisies are painted with yellow glitter fabric paint just because I love sparkles!
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Thanksgiving Place Card Holders on: December 21, 2011 02:59:47 PM
These are pumpkin place card holders that I made for Thanksgiving dinner.  They are made of white clay then painted with a yellow tinted gesso.  Next I dry brushed them and painted the cracks with gold acrylic.  Lastly, I curled some gold wire around a pencil to make the loops and pushed them in the pumpkins.  It might not come across in the photos, but they ended up having a pearl-like antique look.  I am very pleased with how they turned out and I got tons of compliments.  There were nine of us at dinner and I only had time to make that many, but I plan on making an even dozen sometime in the future.

These are adorable.  I was going to do something similar for a pair of earrings, but without the cute little faces.  I love how the storm cloud is glittery.

I've saved all of my stubs since the summer of 1997 and here I've been just gluing them into a journal.  Boring!  This is a much better idea.  Thanks for sharing!

I'm in the middle of trying this out but I used a cereal box as the cardboard and it doesn't seem to be thick enough to make a distinct shape under the paper towel. What sort of cardboard did you use for this? It doesn't say in his blog either, just that he used the back cover of a sketch pad... I ended up covering the design with puffy paint to make sure it will be high enough but... the edges are not crisp like a cut piece of cardboard. And it was a pain in the butt Cheesy!

Cardboard from the back of a sketch pad would be like the back of most notebooks, but it looks like the OP used corrugated cardboard from the tut on Urban Threads.  I just threw away a bunch of scrap mat board that would have been perfect for this, so obviously, I'm kicking myself right now.  Sad

Love the box, BTW!
