1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Notebook with Black Paper (PITTSBURGH STEELERS/PENGUINS) on: December 21, 2010 06:51:24 AM
I found some pens that I thought were a neat idea; they had white ink and were able to write on black paper.  This was a great idea until I couldn't find a notebook/journal with black paper in it and I was really wanting to get this for a collection of gifts for my girlfriend.  So, like so many of us here (on Craftster) I decided that I would make one.  Here is one of the two finished products:



I started out with a folder designed to hold standard notebook paper with three holes, high grade black construction paper, and a decent yellow file folder.



I first cut the construction paper in half (to 6"x9") and then cut the folder with tabs to size to allow slight overhang from the black paper.  I used some Elmer's spray adhesive to glue the heavier yellow folder on the outside of the semi-constructed notebook.  I then trimmed it to 1/2" larger on all sides than the notebook.



I plan on finding some Steelers and Penguins stickers to include with the two journals.  I was hoping the inside would look a little bit nicer, but I'm overall happy with the short time-span that I had to put it together in addition to having never made something like this.
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Question on air-dry clay for plant pot on: November 29, 2010 05:57:34 PM
I want to make a pot for a bonsai tree using stones and cementing them together.  My plan is to use an air dry clay to line the inside of the pot so my soil doesn't run through openings when I water.  I haven't used clay for anything before and was wondering if there would be any issues having water (in the soil) in contact with it once it's dried, my second question is how will I know that it is completely dry?
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Small Bonsai Pot on: November 28, 2010 10:54:06 PM
This is my first post here, so, hopefully I'm not screwing it up.  After my first attempt at posting apparently I can't put pictures in this.   Sad




I got bored using a yogurt cup for my seedling maple tree, and I wanted something closer to a traditional bonsai pot.  I was looking around and found these smaller, half-height, yogurt cups and decided that I'd give it a go.  Below is one of the yogurt cups unaltered.



Please offer any suggestions or criticism.  I didn't exactly take my time with this, I have maybe one and a half hours time involved in it.
