1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Grocery / Gift / Lunch bag on: March 24, 2005 08:25:34 PM
I followed this tutorial, http://www.ehow.com/how_13441_make-paper-bag.html, but I am having trouble when I get to steps 8, 9 and 10. 

#8 Just checking to make sure the new fold will be at 3" (using the 9.5 x 15 dimensions)
#9 I think I get this part, but this might be the part I'm misinterpreting
#10 Without 8, 9, and 10 this just doesn't add up, either. 

Basically, I'm clueless.  And I want to know if it's me, or if it's this tutorial.

Is there anyone out there that can help?  Pretty please?  With a cherry on top?  It's just not clicking, and I know I'll kick myself when it does.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / It's "Prime Time" to be my Valentine! on: February 09, 2005 10:18:09 AM
As discussed in "Nerds need Valentines, too!" (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21756.0)

I made a clock to go with my valentine card (I broke down and made it in Photoshop, though - but the envelope was crafted from a grocery bag, if that's any consolation!).   Cheesy

It's a plain carboard container (round; w/ top) that I bought from Joann Fabrics attached to a standard clock face (I painted the hands black for more contrast).  The numbers are stickers, and two 1/2" flat gemstones keep it upright!  I punched small holes where the non-prime numbers would normally be.

Maybe it's not THAT crafty, but it's a start (instead of quitting something for 2005, I thought I would START something, such as arts and crafts, etc).  This isn't my first project, but it's the first one I'm willing to show off!   Tongue 

There is a small bear figurine in the back.  Don't ask.   Grin

A Scott Baio top, and a Donna Fargo bottom.  I suppose it's possible!   Cheesy
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Measure twice (and then measure again), cut once (revisited) on: January 12, 2005 12:13:49 PM
Well, i completely ruined a "We Are the World" LP cover box by making the top and the bottom the same size, even though I could've sworn I had made the necessary adjustments. 
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Military Minatures on: January 11, 2005 02:03:30 PM
Any good leads on supplies for miniature / model vehicles (military, to be precise)?  They would be about the size on Matchbox cars.  Treads for tanks, wheels for Humvees, die-cast modeling kits, materials, etc?  I live in Minneapolis, but am open to internet / catalog orders, too...although, I DO prefer to be able to inspect the things before I make a purchase.

Indeed!  The prime rib one would go well with dinner and a movie!  Although, you'd probably have to have it ready by the time they get home for it to deliver the most impact...if they don't have a job, work at home, or have taken the day off, it might difficult to surprise them with...plus you'd have to learn how to prepare prime rib (a no-no for me - I can't juggle interests in crafts AND cooking), and then find a movie that you won't actually watch, but will be making out during within 15 minutes ("Braveheart" and "Master and Commander") have been successful for me.  But, I suppose if there's enough chemistry, it won't matter WHAT movie you put in.   Cheesy

Some other ways to interpret "Prime":  Optimus Prime (Transformers), Jimi "Prime Time" Smith (blues artist), or perhaps a "Prime Time" television theme, if you're into that kind of thing.  Prime...ate?  Prime...ordial?  Prime...ary.  Hmph.

The card will read, "It's prime time to be my valentine".  Add cut outs of the numbers 2, 3, 5 and 7, or write as many prime numbers as you can all over the card.  Comprehensive lists can be found on the 'net...U of UT has a list of 10,000 prime numbers.  That oughta' do the trick.

This is a long shot, but if he's into engines, even just kinda-sorta, you could use an itsy-bitsy hose clamp.  Indie Anna's post!  LOL! 
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: How to present a poem... on: January 06, 2005 02:05:08 PM
I wrote a poem for a girl once, and because I was the guy that was friends with the foreign exchange students in the dorm, I asked them to translate it - they were as eager as I was!  I ended up with a lot more than I had imagined!  I won't comment on the technical presentation because I think the ideas already presented in these posts are already pretty cool.   Wink

Wow.  I just noticed how late this reply is...well, I DID just join yesterday...so please take it easy on me!  Smiley
10  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Dremel Tool and Keyboards on: January 05, 2005 06:14:01 PM
I just got me a Dremel tool (thanks Easter bunny), and I have liitle or no idea what its practical applications are.  Yeah, I see what they can do on the box...but that just doesn't seem practical to me...or at best, things that you really only need to do about once in a lifetime. 

Also, I ripped the keys out of two qwerty keyboards.  Any thoughts on what I should be doing with them?  They are currently in a little basket and form a bed for the remote controls.  That's fine with me, too.

Plus, this is my first post, and that's the best I got.  Sorry gang.
