Buy (I know, buy, but they're like 30 cents apiece) real cool craft papers and tile the wall with them.

I have like 90 ads that I've been collecting since my senior year of high school! (i just graduated college last may).  They were up in my room all four years (some of them are a bit worn for it) and now I don't know what to do with them!

yeah, see, that was my thought, but just stuck on the walls wouldn't really work with my "decor" (god, i can't believe i HAVE a decor - when did i become a grown-up?) so i wanted to actually DO something with them... or at least the big flat one.
636  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / lucky strike tins on: January 30, 2004 02:51:26 PM
so i bought these tins on ebay and i'm not sure what to do with them.




To give you an idea of size, the rusted one is a little bit bigger than an altoid tin.  The rusted one doesn't really close all that well - gotta kinda shove it closed. i think it would be neat to keep  the lucky strike showing, though.  hmm...

Anybody got ideas?

sure....take the EASY approach. Smiley
638  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re:Elements Magnets on: January 28, 2004 05:09:04 PM
Yep!  Bought them here.  They have other sizes.

So I saw these magnets in a kitchsy little store once, these "elements magnets" - and i LOVED them... but of course i wasn't going to pay $20 for them.  But this was like 4 years ago, and finally, years later, I did it!  I made them!  Yay.



(here's the explanation part, skip it if you don't want to read about it and instead just look at my pretty picture! Smiley)

I bought the little tins online, and came up with my idea for each elements.  The fire is fire cut out of a magazine with burnt matches inside, the water is painted with glass paint, then filled with E6000 to seal the paint, then, well, obviously filled with water.  Wind is painted with glass paint again and filled with balled up cotton, earth is glass paint filled with soil.  All four are sealed with E6000.  I originally used magnet tape until they immediately fell off the fridge (notice the crack in the fire one) so I bought those hardcore circle magnets and they work better.

with those candles, i did the coolest thing for my friends who are obsessed with certain artists.

i wish i had pictures but i already gave them to them!  guess i'll have to describe.

for my guy friend who's obsessed with madonna i glued pink paper on it, then glued on a picture of her from her "material girl" video, then lined the picture with rhinestones (to match the picture - you know, where she's dressed like marilyn with the diamonds are a girl's best friend)

and for my friend who's obsessed with britney, pink paper again, but this time a picture of her from her "hit me baby one more time video" and i lined the picture with pink poofies to match the poofies in her hair.

they both turned out great, i can't wait to try other ones!
