1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Gromets? on: April 11, 2004 10:57:01 PM
Sounds like they might be eyelets instead of grommets? Same idea, but eyelets only have the one side to them Smiley You can get eyelet setters at the fabric stores that look sort of like mutant pliers.

I believe Walmart carries it in several colors.

I can't remember what it's called, but I've seen it in kits at craft stores. Usually with the "kid" type craft kits.

Paper Mache Recipes:
Recipe 1/ Ingredients: Flour,water,paper
Stir three parts water into one part flour until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
To make the paste last longer, add a few drops of oil of Wintergreen. (optional) You can buy this oil at a drugstore.
Stir well and the paste is ready to use.
Now you need paper- newspaper works well!
Dip each piece of paper in the liquid mixture and apply it one piece at a time to form your shapes.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re:How can I make this? on: March 14, 2004 02:29:28 PM
According to the description, it's stainless steel. So, I'm guessing you could buy a metal ruler and find something to bend it around, maybe a piece of pvc pipe, to get the right shape and size.

Hmm. Might be. If it were me, I'd try putting in the dryer for  a couple of minutes on a low heat, just to see if it seemed to set a little bit.

Ooh, I love Kool-Aid dyeing! You can use it on anything that will take color, even some synthetics. It won't take the color as dark, or as quickly, but it's great for pastels. I've used it a ton on scrapbook supplies that I needed a certain color for, or just wanted to play with. It dyes paper beautifully!

I haven't seen one of these either, but it sounds really cute. If it were me, I might leave the binding edge on the book, and remove the back cover and inner pages. It would give the book a 3d look on the wall, but cut down on the weight quite a bit. Maybe use foam core on the back side to brace the spine so it would stay straight? Hopefully that made sense.

As far as the holes go, a drill would work, or one of those japanese drill punch thingamabobs. Depending on the thickness of the cover, even an eyelet hole punch might work.

Check your fabric paint bottles. It may need to be heat set, either with an iron (on the back side) or in the dryer.  Smiley
