1  Re: soda "fridge packs" in What the heck can I do with THIS? by bevrockin on: August 06, 2004 12:20:19 PM
They make excellent cat storage, if you have a somewhat oblong cat:

For fatter cats, I would recommend the regular soda cases.

2  Wedding Invitation Plate in Weddings and Bridal Showers by bevrockin on: July 27, 2004 08:33:42 AM
This is a cross-post of my original decoupage plate picture frame (sort of) since I got a response from someone about making one as a wedding gift.  I'm offering up a picture of how my invitation plate worked out that I made for my sister-in-law last month.  It's not a great picture, but you get a good idea.

Since I made her invitations for her, I just printed out one of the invites on a regular sheet of computer paper, and trimmed it to fit the middle of the plate.  The edge of the plate is pink & gold scrapbook paper I found at the Dollar Tree.  The back of the plate is painted pink, and then sealed with Krylon Triple-Thick Glaze (I just love that stuff).  All in all, I probably have a dollar invested in the whole thing.  It turned out to be a really nice addition to the cake table.

3  Decoupage Plate Picture Frame in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bevrockin on: July 22, 2004 04:02:01 PM
I hope these pictures work for y'all as I just got them posted to my webpage on my ISP, which I hate and am convinced they are out to make my life miserable.  Anyway, the first one should show & you can click the URL's for the other two & see them yourselves!

Anyway, I have made many, many a decoupaged plate, and I figured that I would try something different.  When I did the plate, I left a 3 X 3 inch square blank in the center by simply taping a piece of paper in that place so I would know where to stop gluing pictures.  When I finished gluing the pics (I used watered down Elmer's, you could use Mod Podge, etc.), I painted the back (except for the taped-off square) with acrylic paint.  I let that dry & then coated it with Krylon Triple-Thick Glaze.  I cut a piece of clear cellophane to fit the edges of the open square, and then glued it on, and glued some grosgrain ribbon around that to seal the rough edges.  Then, I found a picture of a cute, cute nephew & cut it to fit, with a little extra at the top so I could easily remove it & change it out if need be.

And here you have it:

Well, I did it.  I rasterbated right there in the office today, in front of everybody.  Strangely, nobody said anything.  I also printed it out on some cool thick, shiny paper we had that we never used;  I think it was supposed to be for some brochures, but never was utilized. 

Here is the pic, though small (thanks, Photoisland):

Here are two pics of the invitations I just did.  The first has too much flash, so you can't see the embossed cake, but you get a good idea of it overall.
