oh, and hands are probably my number one favorite too bc, as someone else already said, when u think about the breadth of WORK that a pair of hands do in a life time (especially busy crafty hands like ours) it really is mind blowing, and almost spiritual!

do you think this same idea could work with PUFFY FABRIC PAINT and PLASTIC CANDY MOLDS?

i have some plastic candy molds i used to use for polymer clay. since they are plastic, can NOT use hot glue as described in this post (such an awesome idea tho!), so wondering if I could SHALLOWLY fill the molds with puffy paint?

might just try and see if it works. will post successes/failures Wink

Hello everyone--super psyched to get started, and checking out my partner Ludi's pinterest Smiley

Just a thought: aren't we LUCKY we are doing this swap around halloween time? meaning, if your partner wants eyeballs, kidneys, brains, teeth, etc, you are MUCH more like to find craft supplies with these motifs in the stores NOW than any other time of year!

kittykill, was that intentional, or just a happy awesome stroke of luck?

WOW  Shocked Shocked Shocked The gallery is EXPLODING! I really love the gourd birdhouse that Beeker made, and everything I have seen! Can't wait to receive too Smiley

Only because I know that my partner, SweetYetEvil, already received, here is a quick teaser-pic of one of the items I made for her:



I was so excited about this little guy, I HAD to post!!!

Here's a tute showing how I made him, and how u can make your own for less than $2:

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Day Of The Dead Christmas Nutcracker (Written Tutorial) on: December 05, 2013 03:50:59 AM


I recently made this nutcracker for SweetYetEvil, my partner in the Christmas Stocking Swap:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427490.0#axzz2hVVDFaMj

And, I made him for LESS THAN $2 WORTH OF MATERIALS! Here's how you can do the same:

1) Purchase a wooden nutcracker at Dollar Tree, or another discount or thrift store.
2) Strip the nutcracker of all accoutrements, including beard/hair, etc.
3) Spray paint nutcracker FLAT BLACK (Walmart 97 cent brand).
4) Paint details with acrylic--whatever style you like.
5) Seal nutcracker with clear gloss spray paint (Krylon).
6) Once dry, glue on beard and hair...I used faux fur I had, but you could reglue the same hair it already had if u saved it from step #2).
7) Glue on any ribbons or additional items Smiley

Here's more shots of the one I made:











Thanks for looking!
