3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / New piggy bank from cereal box + kind of a tutorial on: August 16, 2012 11:27:33 AM
First of all, I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.
Secondly, I'm sorry for the long story.

A little sneak-peak:


Here we go:

I just want to say, that I'm 14 years old. I want to grow up to be a lawyer and most importantly buy a Hummer (probably H2). Then yesterday, I thought, what if my dreams of being a lawyer get crushed somehow or something happens so that I don't have enough money to buy a Hummer? So I thought I could start collecting money. In order to do that, I have to have a piggy bank. So I went to the store to get a piggy bank that has no hole under it (to collect the money afterwards, because otherwise I would waste the money on something pointless and would never get the amount of money needed to buy a Hummer), nut they didn't have one. So I thought I could make it myself, the crafty girl I am  Smiley Thus came the idea to modify a cereal box.

Here is the tutorial, or the way I did it:

First I took the cereal box and covered a hole that was in there


Then I made a hole in the top part of the box to put the money in


Then, I covered the whole thing in newspaper


Here's a closer view of how I covered the top part with the hole



Then, since it was money for a Hummer, I wanted to write it on there. So first I cut out the letters


I then discovered that they would be hard to see on the box, so I painted them black (a little stupid since I could've just cut them out of black paper, but I was bored too)


Then I put them on white paper (can you tell I'm bored and doing things harder for me than they have to be? Smiley ) and added 'money for a' (it's in Estonian, though)


And it was finished YAY  Cheesy


C&C Welcome

What a kind friend you are. I might have been inclined not to bother with a lining for a pencil case for myself either.....

Thank you Smiley

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Birthday present and pencil case on: August 29, 2011 07:31:00 AM
So my best friend had a birthday and I made her this(it's a phone pouch you dummy...(you're not really dumb)) :


She wanted me to write on it 'Pirgit 15'(her name is Pirgit and she turned 15). But her name didn't fit in there so i had to write only 15:


And here's the back:





And here's the pencil case I made for myself for school:


I really like the bow on this:


I made a little(ok, big) hole in the crocheted piece to make a pocket for the eraser and other small things that would otherwise fall out:


Here's the inside. I didn't make a lining('cause I'm too lazy):

(I closed the case with snaps)

And the back:


Hope you liked it!
C&C Welcome. Always.

Neato neato frito! I was wondering if I could get away with a hair dryer instead of a heat gun... Thanks for sharing!
You're welcome! Cheesy

Hooray! I'm very excited to learn the blow dryer does the trick. I think also it would help to have the paper on the crayons, to keep it a little more tidy. From the looks of yours you used some leftovers, which is also fine by me. It gives it a more explosive look. Smiley I think I'm going to try this project later this week, it's also been on my mind!

Great job!!!
My crayons were scrap so they didn't have their paper on and the ones that had i took off because i didn't want to burn something. And thank you Cheesy

I think it turned out awesome! What kind of crayons? did you use? Yours blended with eachother better than mine did. I think your close-up shots look kind of like an impressionist landscape.

I don't know the name 'cause the package is all in finnish and i can't read finnish... Sad And thank you Cheesy

First of all I want to say that I (sort-of) copied it from [url]http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=388880.0/[url]. Of course mine isn't half as pretty as NightCheads'

Picture that goes as a thumbnail or if you read this then as a beauty shot(It's not very pretty, I know, but I don't have  a better camera):


I glued the crayons down(with PVA, 'cause I don't have any other):


Closer shots of the order of the crayons:




So that was before...(oh and by-theway I used scrap-crayons) And this is after I heated them with my hairdryer:





And here it is with the frame on:

You see the little stripey thingy right on the bottom of the blues? Well that's because the green crayon started rolling around the paper, because he thought that he was the cool one and could do whatever he wanted... Well I got news for ya, green - NOT COOL!!

In other news - The blue one took his time and melted the slowest. The dark blue ones and the lilac ones were in a hurry and melted the fastest(that's why you see so much blue in one end).

Well... Hope you liked it! Smiley
C&C Welcome. Always.
