1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Small Plastic Dessert Spoons on: January 23, 2006 01:01:22 AM
I rescued some 250 small plastic desert spoons from oblivion the other day.  They're white and about 3 inches long.  Any ideas on what I can do with them?

Hmm...

Wrapping paper for presents?  No one else will have Depeche Mode wrapping paper, that's for sure.

Decoupage?

Cut them up and make a fantastic poster-sized collage?

Cut into strips and weave them, and laminate to turn into placemats?

Hey!  I'm in Columbia & a student at Mizzou.  I can't believe I only found the info about the Beaux Arts thing NOW.  I wish I hadn't missed it.   Sad

I bought this book and Jean Railla's Get Crafty book, and I enjoyed this book a lot more (maybe because Railla's book is sort of a manifesto-memoir). 

Starving Artist doesn't have a lot of pictures, unfortunately, but I think it has lots of cool ideas.  The only thing from it that I've made so far are the dada picture frames, which are extremely easy and don't require any tools or mechanical skill.  The book has lots of good ideas and also puts me in a creative mode whenever I look at it.  I'll probably use more of the ideas in it as soon as I have some more time. 

Anyone else?

Wow!  That is soooo cute!  I love their little Anime-looking versions -- they look like they'd be comfortable hanging out with Hello Kitty and Miffy and stuff. 

How'd you make the image bigger?  Photoshop?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Decoupage belt on: September 13, 2004 01:27:23 PM
I tried to decoupage a fake-o plastic-leather belt I got at Wal-Mart, and it was looking really good...until it dried.  The paper cracked and creased and the belt was so stiff and hard to bend.  I ended up just making a belt from scratch with clear tape and some d-rings because it was a lot easier. 

Has anyone managed to successfully decoupage a belt yet?

I've been trying to decoupage some comic book images onto a plain canvas bag (using Mod Podge Fabric), but it doesn't really secure properly, and it's so stiff.   Has anyone successfully mod podged fabric before?

I found this on the Container Store website.  It's snag-proof and can hold a ton of scarves, and it's cheap.  I tried to think of a way to craft it, but just gave up and bought it because I didn't know if I could do it without having scratchy parts that would mess up some of my already-messed-up scarves. I like the idea with the shower rings, too!
