81  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Read to me, Chris on: February 21, 2010 05:43:10 PM
I guess this is a trinket, I wasn't sure where to put it.  I made it with my jewellery making stuff...
It was for crafty_one in her Jar of Whimsie in the swap I was just in.  She lurves Chris Cornell.  I was inspired by the Wicked! bookmark she had on her wists.
Thanks for looking Smiley

Hi, I just wanted to share the two bracelets I made for the loaded charm bracelet swap.

This one has a woodland theme with a leaf, tree, wishing well , bird and some frame charms with birds and a hedgehog in them


and this one has a key and heart theme in black and crystal


I wish now that I had taken nice photos of them, but they were more of the 'take a picture in case something happens to them' kind of photos.  it's all a learning process. 

Thanks for looking Smiley
83  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt name blocks on: February 09, 2010 12:57:23 PM
My friends daughter is turning 1 on the weekend.  I love handmade gifts.  I made her these felt blocks, that have the letters of her name on them.  Each block says Holly, and the is a shape on the 6th side, the 6th block has shapes on each side. 
3 of them are stuffed with regular teddy stuffing, and the other 3 are filled with shopping bags for that fun crunchy sound.  Even though she is still a little young I hope she has fun with them. 
My 13 mth old gave them the play test, so now they are all sucked on and second hand...  Cheesy

Thanks for looking 

all 6 and the box to put them in.  I was going to put them in a fabric bag, but when they are all mixed up, it wasn't easy to tell right away that they spelled Holly

84  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My first collage journal on: February 04, 2010 07:50:19 PM
I found this accordion journal on the clearance table and thought I could use it for the Art Journal page swap to put the pages in when I receive them.  I dug out all my collage papers and came up with this.  It's the first one I've done.  I bought the papers because I loved them and had to have them, but have not used them until now.

Hi, my daughter just turned 1 and this is the cake I made her.  It is just a basic butter cake and butter cream icing.
Thanks for looking.   Smiley

I should have taken better photos, she wasn't as lean-y back as she looks.

87  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wire wrapped pendants...a first for me on: January 03, 2010 10:23:17 AM
Hi, I was in the hardware store and saw these glass pebbles for putting in vases and pots to make them look pretty.  I thought, I bet I could wrap them in wire-somehow.  Finally worked it out.  I used 2 pieces of 26g craft wire twisted together, for no other reason than I wanted to do it, and it was the only wire I had.  I added metal beads to a few, and a dangly on 1.  The teal coloured one (the one with no stone) was the first.  I was still trying to work out how to wrap and keep the stone secure.  Now I am just waiting for my chain to arrive so I can make some necklaces out of them Smiley

90  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Bauble--Now with pic heavy tutorial. on: October 17, 2009 02:11:17 PM
A friend of mine showed me how to make these Christmas baubles.  I just love them.  This one is for my god-daughter for her first Christmas this year.  

The balls I use are approx 18cm circumference. I used 1" ribbons. For the 1st row you need 4x2" long pieces and for the 2nd and 3rd you need 8x2" pieces each.  You will need this for each half of the ball.

Mark the ball into 8 wedges.

From your first colour find the centre and pin it to the ball along one of the wedge lines.

Bring the sides down and form a point.  Pin it to the ball.  Repeat with 3 more pieces.

Mark 1/4" from the centre of the ball. (where the wedges meet.) Find the centre of your next colour. Pin 8 of these around the ball at the points where the ribbon edges meet and also where the folds of the ribbons meet,  and make the point as before, keeping one point over and one under the next.

Do the same with the 3rd colour, marking again 1/4" down from the top of the second point. 

Ath the top where the point meet, push in a pin with a beadand a sequin.  Repeat the steps above  for the other side of the ball. 

After the ball is completely covered, wrap a ribbon around the centre (I use about 40-45 cm) where the raw edges of the ribbons are showing.  Pin it on to the ball with sequins and beads.  Loop the excess ribbon into a bow on top and a piece to hang it from the tree.

The you are all finished.  The first one at the top of the post, I used eye pins, jump rings and chain to attach the bell and initial letter.  Instead of 3 colours, use 2 like I did, or one plain, and one patterned. 
I really hope this makes sense, please ask if you have any questions and I will try to help you.
Thanks for looking, and if any one make a ball, I'd love to see it.
