71  Re: VALENTINE CARD IDEA SHARING :D in Valentine's Day by nasty_wench on: February 06, 2006 11:35:09 AM
OOooops! I started a new thread without reading this one first. Sorry to duplicate!!!

If you're like me, you make Valentine's for your parents, grandparents, friends as well as your guy. So I need some ideas as I like to make them all different.



I made this one for my grandparents. On the card,  I masked a heart shape and stamped over it with a light pink floral rubber stamp. Then I pulled the mask off and outlined it with tacky glue and poured on the glitter.

On the envelope, I stamped one side completely with the same floral mask. Then  I used the negative from the heart mask, and glued it on the envelope, outlined with glue then drizzled on the glitter.

Not sure if this would get through out postal system with the glitter on the outside too. I'm planning to put the envelope on a box of chocolates and wrap it in Kraft paper. That way it will get through for sure.

I know this is a little traditional for crafster, but it's for my grandparents who are in their 90's. I wanted something low-key and recognizable. Especially as Granddad has early stage Alzheimer's and I want to keep things simple for him.

OK.... now let's see everyone's Valentines... traditional, wild, sexy, subtle, cool, cruel (?), fun, romantic....

73  Re: your basic sock monkey in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: February 05, 2006 08:33:11 AM
Sock monkeys are so easy and quick to make. I used the directions from the PDX Super Crafty book when I made mine. But I found these directions online and they seem just as clear as the PDX book.

My co-worker and I made sock monkeys at work one very slow afternoon. We sewed ours by hand. She has since made about 9 more using her sewing machine.

I love making them.. They are so cute and easy to personalize.

I made a set of flower flip flops. I loved them, but then the flowers fell off as I had used hot glue to attach them. So then I reattached them with super tacky craft glue. Again, they fell off. Could anyone suggest a good glue? They are silk flowers being affixed to a rubber strap. I hope someone can help me. I want to wear them as soon as the snow melts!  Grin

Hey BellaRocks, did you ever get directions to make a duvet cover? I can give you some rough measurements if you want to make one. I just finished my third duvet cover. This one's for my sister. I wish I could keep it! LOL. Isn't that the way it always goes when crafting gifts?  Grin
