1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Microfiche on: April 04, 2009 09:17:50 AM
Can you post a picture? Maybe lamp shades? Wrap around votives?
Added a link to a similar microfiche card I found on Google Image Search.

I don't have lamp shades or votive cups, although if I had a dark blue decor theme going on that might work.

Wondering what to do with microfiche cards. I just found out that the library where I work gets them but simply throws them out since we don't use them or have a reader or anything. I think they look cool but I've got crafter's block. Any ideas other than artist trading cards?

Edit: It looks almost exactly like this:

Use magazine photos and such to make custom bubble mailer envelopes.

I love this! I'm knitting a scarf for a friend and bought a package of buttons that matches the yarn. I'm pondering getting a similar knob and doing this with a picture frame with the knob in the middle to make a scarf hanger to go with the scarf.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Weird Fitted Sheet? on: October 01, 2007 06:07:14 AM
Hi everyone,

I have a weird problem. My university's dorms have weird mattress sizes. They're something like "long twin" or "wide twin" size. I couldn't find sheets of that size so I got regular twin, and they all seem to fit... except the fitted sheet barely fits and keeps popping off! It was like this all last year and it's really bugging me. Any ideas for neat crafty tricks to make the fitted sheet stay on???

Frankenmuth is definitely a nice place to go if you have the money for it, otherwise I suggest not. I'm quite a fan of the clearance fabric scraps at the Super Wally World out on Tittabawasee in Saginaw Township. Also I noticed that the Dollar Tree on Gratiot in Saginaw had a decent selection of Lion Fun Fur (as does the one in GR on 28th street) which I have seen go for $4-7 a skein elsewhere - definitely a bargain. Saginaw doesn't have a Big Lots anymore but Bay City might - so check them out for good deals too.

I just moved back to Grand Rapids though so no more Saginaw for me. Luckily the Big Lots here has decent $1 furry yarn too Cheesy

I did some paper with leaves once, i stirred then in just before pouring the paper pulp out onto my screen. They looked good & staed put.
Thanks for the reply. My major concern is that, when experimenting with cotton and liquid, it seems to like sticking to itself a lot and not pulling apart easily. Oh well - maybe I should give leaves a try instead Tongue
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: almost free fabric at Hancock fabrics on: July 28, 2007 02:43:19 AM
Even though there aren't Hancock Fabrics stores where I live anymore, I recently found out that the local Walmart Supercenter sells fabric scraps very cheaply. The have them rolled up and placed in a huge bin and marked down really cheap - sometimes 60% Smiley

Funny story - I don't keep much cash on me and I was at Walmart with friends, and I saw a piece of fabric I liked. At the checkout the cashier asked me why I was paying for something for 43 cents with my credit card?! Oh well..
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Handmade Paper Question on: July 27, 2007 06:19:58 PM
Hi there. I've been making handmade recycled paper for a long time, but never tried adding anything besides paper. I've heard of paper make with cotton rag and I have a big bag of cheap 100%-cotton cotton balls. I'd like to add these to some of my paper, but I'm not quite sure where they fit in the equation. Should I put them in the blender with the paper I'm recycling, or wait until after and just mix it in my pulp in tiny chunks? Please let me know if anyone has any experience they can share with this! Also - same question, but with bits of thread and yarn Wink

I know I've posted this before, but most state separtment of transportation websites or tourism websites will send you free maps.
