1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beer Bottle Cap Dress on: October 28, 2012 04:37:11 PM
So I have made a dress with wrappers (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=383805.msg4544751#msg4544751 ) and i make a skirt out of juice pouches( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=403294.msg4745157#msg4745157 )
and I decided I was going to make something else. So after a lot of collecting and cleaning I made a beer bottle cap dress for my homecoming. The theme was fire and ice so i took the caps and painted them red,orange , and yellow. I also made a choker, bracelet and earrings. The skirt of the dress was  made from an old bed sheet and the top from some leftover red fabric from my Meme, so the entire dress was recycled

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wrapper Dress on: June 26, 2011 07:46:32 AM
OK so I have heard about people making dresses out of candy wrappers and such, so I decided to give it a shot. My dress was originally going to be made out of just candy wrappers, but it has some chip bags and Raman noddle bags, so its a wrapper dress. My earings, necklace and the flower on my headband are also made of wrappers. I made it for my dance.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Gift Ideas? on: November 21, 2010 08:33:44 AM
Hey everyone!
This year my friends and I are going to be giving everyone in our group gifts for Christmas, (I'm 13), and I plan on surprising my friends by making each of them something. The problem is that I don't know what you make. I want it to be something that won't take too long (considering I have to make about 7 of them, then I have to make the gifts for family members) So, does anyone have any ideas for quick crafts that I make and give as gifts to my friends?  Huh
Thanks,
~Crafting Angel  Smiley
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Where can I sell my crafts if I'm under 18? on: October 29, 2010 04:40:13 PM
Hey everyone!
Ok I need some help, I love making crafts (i sew, knit, crochet,beading..etc.) and I don't know where to sell them. I know everyone is probably saying/thinking that there is some where on her that answers this question, but the problem is that I'm 13 and most if not all of the sites that you can sell on you must be 18 or older, I have been doing this all of my life and my Mom said that I could make some money for myself if I sold some, but where to sell? I know that are craft fairs but they are kind of hard to do considering I have school then I have weekend to-dos and such. So does anyone have any ideas of where to sell? Huh
