Heidi from mypapercrane.com has some instructions "adapted" from martha stewart that might make sense if you have kids, and probably have old clothes around.


it seems farily simple and just requires the ability to braid and make simple stitches for reassurance. it also helps you clean out your closet!

ok, Everyone knows the obvious answer is to make bookshelves out of them, but i'm looking for something more impressive. I have so many that are currently being used for storage right now. Is there a way to spruce them up and keep their storage potential? I've considered covering them in fabric, but I'm afraid they will get dingy looking fast since they can't be washed.

any ideas?

If you can find a cool vase you could probably affix them permananty to the edge. You'd just need some sort of waterproof strong adhesive. Not sure what might be best to use there! if nothing else, just hot glue them to picture frames, planters, and birthday cards. haha

oh! i forgot to mention that you can just use standard colored pencils to put your design on them! Smiley

once you're done you can glue them onto a pinback, or punch holes in them before baking to make necklaces, keychains, or charms. its a really simple way to make personalized fun gifts or party favors.

You can also make Shrinky Dinks by sanding down plastic (look for recycleable code #6)--or the kind of plastic used for salad take out containers.

-sand both sides evenly
-put on top of any drawing you want to trace or draw something freehand
-put on foil, and put them in the oven or toaster oven on low heat. Watch them shrink up just like shrinky dinks!

Ideally do this in an oven or toaster oven with a window so that you can pull them out as soon as they shrink, besides, that's half the fun !:)
