Anybody know what would happen if I pressed seed beeds into sculpey and baked them?  They'd only be in the heat for 3-4 minutes.

Could you make a gag me with a spoon wedding chest with your gag me with a spoon wedding magazines?  You know, to keep your various cards and souveniers and whatnot.

the magazine kind of has a cool different feel to the pages though, being from 1965 and all.... photo copies might ruin that big time.

so this is really an opinion asking thread.  i bought two playboys from a thrift store, one from 1965 and one from 1970.  they're very very cool - lots of awesome articles and lots of cool images.  there's these images of a woman posing with a lion skin rug, and i love them, and i want to cut them out and do something awesome with them.  but there's the question - cut up these cool old magazines or leave them whole?  what good are they doing me whole?  or does it ruin the coolness of them to cut them up? ahhhh inner turmoil.
help!

Yeah, that would be helpful, huh. Smiley

Measured like a beast, over and over again for the papers.  They're handmade papers, came in a pack.   I painted the whole wooden mirror black before decoupaging on the papers with mod podge.  Same thing on the shelf - painted it first, then decoupaged on the wood.  I painted the pegs black and nailed them in and glued them down, though I REALLY wish I had a drill to get them in there nice, but what are you gonna do.  Bought these metal hanging thinges - Little metal squares with triangles attached - i know, vague - that you can nail into wood.  Nailed in two and hung it so themirror hides it.  That's it!  I'm thinking of making candle holders with soda cans, but...I still dig it.

Look, pretty! =)

Decoupaged with handmade paper, pegs nailed in cause I have no drill.

Oh yeah, ignore the reflection of silly little me taking the picture. =)
630  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / leg of couch.... what to do? on: February 11, 2004 12:10:49 AM
So I went scrounging down my street (yay to scrounge!) and look what I found!:

It's a carved heavy wooden leg of the couch. It's about 10 inches long and 5 inches wide, with rounded edges on two of the sides.

As you can see, the back of it is kind of scratched up.

There's a groove running down the bottom for where it used to fit on the couch.


So the question is.... WHAT TO DO?  It's heavy wood, and I have no drill.... unfortunately.  Give me time.   But repaint it?  Refinish it?  Resand it?  And then what?  I have no ideas whatsoever.
