681  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: I tried the CD Necklace thing! on: April 23, 2006 03:44:08 PM
Well, I actually used the quick instructionss from Inna's original post found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8959.0

I just followed her nuking, cutting and baking instructions below her necklace photo and viola! Mine turned out right. I think, like with anything, you just have to keep an eye on things, too, and alter them to make them work out best for you. For example, one cd I did only needed to be microwaved for 3 seconds otherwise it turned brown, and then I preferred adding felt to the back of mine.

Thank you for the compliments!!

They didn't turn out *quite* like I want them to, but I had so much fun doing this I thought I'd try again later. I think I'm going to see how long I can get away cooking them because the edges were still a bit sharp and uncomfortable against the skin, even with the felt. I want to see if I can get them softened up a bit more, or even try to mold them into another shape.

This is the first time I've made felt pins, and I love how they came out! Hopefully you think so too. Smiley I've been trying to be more diverse in the kinds of crafts I try so I have more of a variety on my website. I'll definitely making more of these! They're so much fun. I just hope they sell now. Tongue


I love these, too! I actually made some dangles (I didn't take any photos of though) with some beads from my dad's great grandmother's jewelry and my mom's mom's jewelry so we would have some dangles with meaning on our bracelet. I enjoy being able to show them to people and say, "This is part of my family history, it represents my greatgrandmother and my grandmother."
685  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / My First Scrapbook Page! Toto and the Wizard of Oz on: April 23, 2006 01:04:32 PM
My mom's in a Wizard of Oz group and they're doing a scrapbook swap, 8-1/2 by 11 inches so it goes through the mail easier. Well, I kinda formed the page in my head then ordered the supplies for it. It's not done yet, I need to add a couple of photos of Toto, but I haven't decided to do that yet. My mom wants to incorporate some sort of thing where the Emerald City opens and shows a photo of Toto, so I need to see how I'm going to do that. I expect to make it a glittery green. Smiley My mom also wants to add a small pair of ruby red slippers somewhere because it's her favorite aspect of the movie, so I've got to figure that out, too.

I'm just quite proud of this because it was my first time and I didn't make any royal screwups! Smiley

The back and the front. Instead of sealing it with nail polish I backed it in felt. I used E600 glue, which I swear by.


A collection of the CD pieces I kept. I threw some purple ones I made in the trash because they came out terribly. I love the shine the oven baking gives them!!


This CD was tinted blue so I strung it on a blue cord.


The gold chain on this is a bit short for my neck, but it's still cute!

I really thought she'd get ticked that zapped them in the microwave then cooked them in the convection oven. (22, living at home cuz I can't afford to go to school if I don't, so yeah.) Surprisingly, she was pretty impressed! I think she might even want to try it. She thinks they look like little skirts and wants to make a pin out of one.

I think Mom thinks I'm going to put them on my website for sale, but I'm not too sure. Maybe for kicks.

688  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Could I sell this? (2 pics of necklace) on: April 22, 2006 12:59:26 PM
People are always willing to pay a bit more if it's for a good cause, like the church fundraising.

That's awesome, by the way! I'm going to see if I can rustle up a cd so I can try it myself. Smiley

That is so cool! What do you use to make them stick--Modge Podge? I made some paper beads with Chinese printed paper before and used modgepodge. I found them a while ago, and they'd all stuck together! blech. Tongue

That is such a cute poptab bracelet! I made some with twine once. I love how it looks with the ribbon!

And those corona earrings? So cute! My sister works with a gal who loves the stuff. How did you manage to get the tops off without bending them?
