641  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:snapple caps? on: January 28, 2004 02:44:25 PM
wow, i thought snapple was international.  my world is torn apart.  =)

snapple is a fruity flavored drink - both teas and "juices" (I use that term loosely.) it's mostly just sugary water, but it's pretty big here - lemon iced tea and peach iced tea and kiwi strawberry "juice" (again, loosely) being some of the most popular.  my favorite is grapeade, personally.

the snapple caps have interesting little facts inside (although they're not always true and you have to go to the website to find out if they are and it's just one big marketing ploy)

i HOPE this image is working.  There's the link right beneath in case not.


Soda/Beer can pencil holder

Look!  Now keep in mind, I made this at 3 am because I couldn't sleep (which is maybe why it looks a little ghetto), and also keep in mind that a guy would probably like a beer can better, but yay!  Soda/beer can pencil holder!  Maybe you could do other desk stuff with beer/soda stuff - get a little cardboard box from craft store and cover it in beer/soda labels peeled off glass/plastic bottles?  So easy, obviously, since I'm doing it at 3 am - just cut and the duct tape is on top to protect from sharp edges, on the bottom for aesthetic purposes. =)  Inside is lined with cardboard for strength.

I saw the snapple cap table, neato idea, but I'm looking for something less.... huge.  Ideas?  Anyone?  Help?

Am I the only one who thinks this would look totally cool instead of horribly weird? What if you sewed each pair down onto a different quilt square, then make it into a quilt?  You could even leave a part of some of them open, for like a pocket for the remote control or something.  Am I alone here? Which I'm ok with, cause you know, celebrate being weird.  Smiley

They could make some way cool thumbtacks.
647  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Journal with Clay Medallion on: December 14, 2003 10:20:17 PM
I made this little jobber for my sister for her birthday - well, actually, I made her a bigger one and I made this one for myself.  I bought a little blank book at Micheal's, along with two stamps - one with writing and one with a little square design.  I already had the Sculpey and the leather string and beads, but that's just craft hoarding me. =)

So obviously the front is just stamped.  Easy enough.  The medallion, I pressed the stamp into a black stamp pad a couple of times, then stamped it hard into the clay.  I cut it out of about half a centimeter thick (I couldn't think of it in inches =) )  and baked it according to the Sculpey instructions.  I then glued the leather string with the beads attached underneath the medallion with my glue gun. The inside is obviously just lined with paper - to get it through the holes I took the cover off of the wire, glued it on, and used a paintbrush to punch through the holes, then trimmed off the extra that poked through with my Exacto Knife.   The back inside cover is lined with paper too, and the back leather is glued beneath it.  That's about it.  Very simple, but it looks nice.  I'm hoping to get more advanced soon. =)
