1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Find me something corkin'! on: February 18, 2007 09:51:36 AM
Hello, does anyone have idea what to do with plastic wine corks?

I work in a restaurant where wine is served and so obviously we have a lot of leftover corks. I originally brought some home for my mum to use (she's making a cork board out of corks), but the plastic ones are too dense, so I was wondering if anyone had any cool ideas about what I can do with them?

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Almost kitsch, but not quite on: June 04, 2006 12:14:43 PM
Hey, i made this bag yesterday as an entry for the craft challenge but I couldn't find a way to put lollipop sticks and pipe cleaners on without ruining it, so i'm afraid it didn't qualify. which is probably a good thing as after seeing all the amazing entries, my little bag kinda pales in comparison Smiley

the shape is based on this tutorial-http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=48087.0, so thank you very much to muahtimespi for letting me use it. I got the fabric for 1.99 from Oxfam, which is pretty amazing I reckon, and there's still loads left.

 Here's the whole bag. Its quite small, but with a really long strap so it fits over my opposite shoulder because I do a lot of cycling so I didn't want it falling off.

the pom-pom's (yay! got them in). there's a snap fastening on the other side of them.

a close-up of the fabric. i think its very cool. can only wear it with plain things though.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Take Away 16th on: January 25, 2006 11:10:37 AM
Hey, its my sixteenth in March and I've decided to have a take away party. I thought i'd send out menus with the invites and get everyone to dress up appropriately for the country their food is from.

for example-if they choose a curry, thats Indian so i'd get them dress in a sari or in something with an indian theme.

Basically I'm looking for ways to make it a bit more interesting, as they'll probably be in my house for about 4 or 5 hours so a movie isn't gonna cut it really! Still ideas of films to watch would be great and also games that are vaguely related. games that get people talking would be good too because I kind of have two different sets of friends and I'd like to bring them together.

any ideas for invites/decorations would be great aswell.

Thank you!
