121  Re: 'Relationship Journal' in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by Haylie on: February 28, 2006 08:20:40 PM
This isnt for a relationship journal, but i made this cover for a little book i made the boy for valentines day (click to see it bigger):

It's just a printed paper version of a picture i took of the two of us. I used scrapbooking tape to attach it to the fabric and then sewed it on in the corners (THROUGH the cardboard of the cover! Wasnt easy!)

122  Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! in Clothing Sewalongs by Haylie on: February 10, 2006 06:29:15 PM
Ok, so i'm planning on making my prom dress, been playing with the design for a while...but here's the thing...i hate patterns.  And i want asymmetrical boning in the bodice ....cant seem to find a picture online, so i sketched it in paint:

So here's the question: i'm no master seamstress..would i be completely insane to try to make something like this with no pattern? I have my (store-bought) prom dress from a few years ago that is similar in parts, so i can base parts off that.

Yay, i found some silver wire & did another one...(while i was supposed to be cleaning my craft room! oops...hehe.)

I used a smaller marble, this time, which was harder. I think it'll make a very pretty necklace if i can just find a short enough chain!

To see the design....

To see the actual color of the wire...

Ok, only made one so far...not quite sure what i'll use it for, i think it may be too big for a necklace..i dont often wear big ones. I think it may be a good keychain...we'll see. (click on the picture if you wanna see it bigger)

126  Magnetic Close Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Haylie on: December 29, 2005 09:48:46 AM
In making my first journal, I suddenly decided to do one of those with close with a magnet. I'm ridiculously proud of it, considering how easy it was. (click on any picture to see it bigger)

The pages extend past the cover because i badly wanted to use that fabric but didnt have very much. I actually ended up being glad of that in the end, since i love how it turned out.

All I did to make it was use this wonderful coptic stitch tutorial:

http://personal.mem.bellsouth.net/d/r/drv1913/0204.html Now if you go there and scroll down a bit, you may notice where it says in big bold letters: "If this is your first time making a book, I would strongly advise against using any sort of thick paper such as watercolor paper or heavy drawing paper." Right, I definitely disregarded that and used cardstock. Which was, admittedly, must harder than the one i made with normal paper later...but cardstock was all i had at the moment. Plus i rather like how it turned out much thicker than one made with thin paper.

Anyway. To make the extra flap i simply cut another piece of cardboard the same size as the spine and then a piece for how big i wanted the flap. I glued magnet #1 to the front cover cardboard, glued the front cover, spine, back cover and other "spine" to the fabric (using tacky glue), then put the remain piece of cardboard on top of the front cover, put some tacky glue on the magnet, and let it stick so it was on top of the other magnet (I had some very strong magnets...) then glued the last piece to the fabric!

Glue a paper over the flap..
glue the front and back pages to the cardboard, and voila! Beautiful journal. I gave it to my cousin for Christmas, she loved it Cheesy

"N is for necklace"

"G is for Good memories"
...and then my photo uploading service stopped working!! AHH! *grumbles about imageshack*
But basically it's a clear globe with pictures and red crinkled paper inside. It's purty. Cheesy

Here's "W is for Wooden Box" which was supposed to be for thursday, but the people passing out the gifts didnt see it sitting clearly in front of the christmas tree! Ah!

And i filled it with Dove dark chocolates(yum) and other candy.

Friday was "A is for Altered book Angel"  I wanted to see her open it & see her reaction, but i was out of town.

(And that's my turtle Jo there in the background..she's always very interested in my crafts, lol)

yay, i'm excited! It's fine that you were busy, i'm in no rush. Smiley

Ok, so tomorrow, "H is for Hearts"

All these random hearts (plus some candy!) in this heart-shaped box (I personally think my butterfly looks evil, but my lil sis convinced me out of repainting it, lol)

Theres, let's see, two shrinky dink hearts, a painted wooden heart, a painted salt-dough heart, a bead heart, a heart made of beads, a metal heart i bought on vacation in FL and a felt heart pin i made when i was in girl scouts many years ago(i had to make a bunch and still find them around my house...)! And the box is just cardboard.

130  Duct Tape Roses Tutorial! *pic heavy like craftster is crafty...* in Completed Projects by Haylie on: December 13, 2005 04:18:21 PM
I needed something cool to fill a vase for a friend and happened to decide to make them out purely of duct tape! They're actually very sturdy and guys and girls alike like them- i'm planning on using them for easy Christmas for classmates this year. (I'm sure there are other tutorials on how to do this, but this is how i did mine...)

((Click on any picture to see it bigger))

First of all, the finished product (featured in a record bowl):

All you need for this project is duct tape and scissors. (I perfer to use silver, but you can get many different colors in craft and hardware stores)

Step 1: Petals
To make the first petal, get a piece of duct tape about this long:

Fold under the lower right side:

Fold under the top right corner:

Repeat for the other side of the petal:

Next, fold down the top:

Finally, fold in the bottom corners:

Tada! Your first petal. Stick it on something (preferably metal or something that wont cause the duct tape to lose any stickiness. My sister's fingers also worked quite well  Cheesy)

Step 2: Blossom

When you have 5 of these petals:

Stick them together in a nice flower shape. I found my favorite flowers were the ones that i stuck together so it makes a slight cup-shape.

Make 3 more petals of roughly the same size as the first 5 and stick them on your flower shape.

Make 3 more smaller petals and stick them on:

Next, get a piece of tape about this long:

And cut it in half to get two roughly square pieces:

Fold both pieces into petals and stick them on your flower.

Yay! Now turn your blossom over, it should look like this:

Get a piece of tape about this long (longer than any of the pieces you used to make the petals, but not so long that it's longer than your flower!)

Fold down the top corners:

Then stick it to the back of a petal: Repeat until whole back is covered.

Step 3: Stem
Get a piece as long as the desired length of your stem and roll it into a loose  tube:

Crinkle it randomly to close up the space inside the tube:

Cut one end of your stem on a diagonal to give it a nice finished look:

Step 4: Putting It All Together
Get a piece about this big:

Fold in the bottom sides:

Wrap it around the stem (it should only reach 1/3rd to 1/2 of the way around)

Fold the top sides in, then in again (and a 3rd time, if needed)

Bend the whole piece you just folded back:

Make two more:

Firmly stick it to the bottom of the blossom:

Tada! A duct tape rose!  Grin
If you have any questions, please ask, and if you make a rose, please post it- I'd love to see!
