1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Craft paper and foam board on: February 21, 2009 01:54:15 PM
I have a question about the best way to attach foam board to craft paper. 

I'm decorating my classroom door for Read Across America week and I have the door covered in craft paper.  I really want to carve some foam board and attach it to the door for a nice 3-D effect.  It's rather thin, 3/16 in (5mm) thick, but basically the whole door would be covered.  I can't decide if it would be best to glue the board to the paper on the door or use double stick tape, or both.  I would hate for panels to pop off anytime I open the door.  I can't do/use anything that would damage the door, and it will only be up for 4 days.  Any suggestion would be great. 
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Bouquet with tutorial on: March 07, 2008 03:58:10 PM
My cousin is having her first baby shower, and being the crafty one in the family, I wanted to do something special.  I looked around at diaper cakes and diaper wreaths when I stumbled across a baby bouquet. After much searching I found how to make them, so here is my take at a baby bouquet.



I added 3 board books I found at Target.  She loves frogs, hence the ribbon and box decoration  Smiley


Basic tutorial:

a wooden box
paint
plastic/silk leaves and small flowers
baby clothes (I used all white, 8 socks, 5 onesie's, 3 kimono style shirts)


I painted frogs, her favorite animal
   

and here's how it looks on the box-
     

The back and inside I painted the same color as the frogs.  Then I made my bouquet based off this tutorial:  http://www.marthastewart.com/article/baby-bunch-bouquet


Here's a onesie, a sock, and a shirt



and here's 14 flowers grouped into 9 bunches.


I cut an old shoe box to fit inside the box and poked 9 holes to hold the flowers.
 

Here's how it looks with all the flowers:


To hide the stems, I placed tissue paper around the inside, two sheets, one fluffed up, and one fluffed down.
     


There you go, hope you enjoy!  Cheesy

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / pincushion pattern? on: February 04, 2007 07:14:17 PM
i saw a pincushion today, loved it, and can't find a pattern for it anywhere.

it looks like a sunflower, a huge stuffed center and the 3 layers of "petals" that weren't stuffed are on the outter edge. there's a fourth layer of petals that are made to look like leaves. they kind of remind me of prairie points. the lady that made it said she used a pattern (didn't mention the name though) and said that the petals were made from circles (that were folded into triangles).

anyone ever seen anything like this before?
thanks  Smiley

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / yo ho yo ho, a pirates life for me on: November 02, 2006 06:57:10 AM
I dressed as a pirate wench for halloween this year  Grin

the boots earrings and necklace were bought, the top and vest were simplicity patterns, the skirts were hand drafted. I made the boot cuffs also.  Only thing I regret was not using boning in the vest like it required, and it kept bunching up  Undecided

with my pirate pet, and the lace up back:

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / paper mache animals? on: June 07, 2005 11:42:15 AM
i think paper mache goes here, if not, then mods feel free to move it where ever.

i've been asked to do some life size paper mache of animals, girrafe, zebra, something along those lines.   i know lots of people use chicken wire as a base, and then paper mache over it. does anyone know a website that would detail what exactly i would need to do this, and how to go about doing it?  i guess what i really need help with is the supporting frame?
