we discovered the amazing world of iron-on transfers at Wally World!
not that we support walmart, it's kind of a last resort.

our superfab shirts:

we designed this one! this was the first.

cut us some slack, we're first timer iron-on transfer-ers!

3  easy-as-pie Sculpey earrings! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Fluffster on: May 28, 2006 07:53:02 PM
it's completely idiot proof with super cute results.

all I did was mold a tiny chunk of red Sculpey into the shape of a heart, and took an
unwanted earring stud and stuck it into the sculpey heart. you put them in at 275 fahrenheit
for about 10 minutes. let them cool for about 5 minutes, and you've got yourself some cute
heart studs Smiley

ps: depending on the shape of the original earring stud, you may have to use a larger chunk of clay to fit the heart completely around it. you can also put the chunk on, then mold it to the shape you want.

4  nifty necklace holder! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Fluffster on: December 25, 2005 10:48:15 AM

I made it out of old scraps of wood, and sticks i found, and glued it all together with my trusty glue gun.
they are so easy to make and make great gifts...but only if you really want to tackle the challenge of wrapping it  Shocked

i hope everyone had a good christmas/hannukah Smiley

A little black paint, a picture of Marilyn Monroe, and some rhinestones later:

Its no longer stinky and depressed  Smiley

6  Blank CD holder lantern (tutorial!!) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Fluffster on: September 11, 2005 06:16:39 PM
I made this nifty little lantern out of an old blank-cd holder, some origami paper, and christmas lights. The amazing turnout:

If you'd like to make one, here's what you need:

-an old blank-CD holder (make sure it's plastic and at least 6 in. high)
-little christmas lights
-Origami paper (2-3 sheets, approx 6x6 size)
-Mod podge (gloss or matte, doesn't matter)
-a small paintbrush, about 1 inch-ish wide

OK! lets get STARTED!!

1. Take your old blank-cd holder, and snap off the little rod in the middle that holds the cds. This should be very easy to do if it's plastic, it should snap right off. Next, make sure there is a hole in the bottom of the holder that is big enough to stick a christmas light cord through. If you want to see what the lantern will look like with the christmas lights in it, take the clear cylindar thingy and stuff the little lights in. Take the bottom of the holder and screw it back on, with the light cord going through the hole in the bottom. Plug it in and hold up your origami paper of choice up to the holder. nice looking, eh? yes, it will.

2. Time of put on the origami paper. Make sure the holder is clean before you slather any mod podge on it. If your origami paper is about the same height as the holder, paint a very thin coat of mod podge onto it and stick your paper straight on it, and make sure it is aligned properly. Repeat this step until the clear holder is covered all the way around it in the paper, and the christmas lights inside it are no longer visible. If you like, you can cover the top of the holder with paper, but i don't reccomend it. The lantern is already dim enough as it is, and covering the top will only limit more light. I do reccomend poking a few holes in the top of the lantern though so the heat from the lights can escape.

Plug in your lantern, and VOILA!!! there's your own homemade origami lantern.

**this is my first tutorial, so be nice  Smiley**
