1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / hanging garden bags on: April 19, 2012 08:26:24 AM
I kind of up cycled old fabric and plastic foil. The bags are hung up with s - hooks.
In my opinion it's a nice idea and a small project. I entered in a contest with it but the judges didn't like the concept behind it.
There are some pictures in my gallery if you want to have a closer look at the bags. Feel free to leave a comment Smiley.
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / What to do with old score books? on: April 30, 2010 02:01:53 PM

that might sound odd because I usually rather die than give up scores at all but I recently figured out that I have two booklet with scores that are old and which I never ever will play/ sing.
So what can I do with them? I tried to use the paper to make origami but it's too old and doesn't fold well Sad.
Do you have an idea?

Greetings Christina

Hello together,

this is my first post in here Smiley. Thus I hope you enjoy what I made. A while ago I found this bag http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45643.0 and I thought that with little changes the technique could work out on bigger boxes as well. Last weekend i finished the box in the middle row to the left. Here is the link to the picture:

 (Unfortunately I'm not yet allowed to post pictures Sad)
Making the box was easy. I cut old newspaper into stripes of 7cm (2.75inches) and folded them into thirds. To make the stripes I glued the paper on clear tape until I reached the desired lenght. The excess ot the tape is glued on the back of the stripe thus the paper is covered compleately by clear tape. All which is left is to actually weave the box.
If you want to see more pictures you can take a look at my blog http://my-everything-and-nothing-blog.blogspot.com/2010/04/self-made-box.html.
