that's so cute! Did you make the ruffled fringe on the outside? it looks like it's the same fabric as the outside fabric.

Where did you get the hair clips with flat pieces on them? I'd love to do this with picture marbles.

Where did you find your cross-stitch mesh? I've only been able to find 4x4 squares.

I find it at most craft places, like Michael's, Wal-mart, Joann's. Ask for plastic canvas.

Yep, I've seen it at tons of stores like this. If you can't find it at a craft store, you can also go to a hardware store and buy some plastic screen.
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Freestanding decoupaged earring holder (mini-tutorial) on: July 29, 2005 12:43:23 PM
I made an earring holder using a picture frame, but it wouldn't stand up easily on my dresser. So, I made a completely freestanding earring holder out of an old box, some newspaper clippings, and cross-stich mesh. I added a few studs to decorate.

Here's the front:

From the side, you can see the shape of it:

And the back:

The key is the slanty shape, because it gives extra weight on the bottom to prevent the holder from tipping over. It also makes it easier to see the earrings.

This is the way you need to cut your box:

You get two holders from one box!

After I had the basic shape, I decoupaged on some newspaper clippings, and hot-glued on a rectangle of cross-stitch mesh.

The holder is quite portable and ever-so useful.

You could open it in Paint, and "Save as" to make it 4 separate documents. So, 4 documents that are the same pic.

Then, you crop it so each of the 4 documents has 1/4th of the photo (one pic would be the upper right part, one part would be upper left, etc). Then in Word you can make each quadrant the size of a sheet of paper.

Those are awesome! I have one suggestion: for Photoshop, you can do it all in one step by going into the filter menu, scrolling down to "sketch" and selecting "stamp."

It looks really cool, but you know that duct tape melts in the sun and it might get really gooey!
