Okay so for my government class (i'm in 11th grade) we have a semester project we have to do. It can be on absolutely anything related to GOVERNMENT or government issues. Not history. As far as the actual project, it can be anything. Literally. Cake, clothes, dolls, a paper, a picture, diagram, etc. This is where you guys come in.
I'm completely stumped on what I want my project to be. Can you please help me out? Any ideas will work as long as they're related to government. I have until June to finish it so theres no rush, but I'd like to get it done early.
So normally, I'm a shirt designer and duct tape artist. I make duct tape purses and stencil shirts and such. Well I haven't done anything in a while, so I wanted something new. I came into this board hoping to find something interesting because i absolutely LOVE to write. A notebook/journal would be perfect! I came across one topic that used old vinyl records as covers. It's the coolest thing ever. So I took a show and tried it! Here are the results!
This is the front of the journal.
This is the inside. I had to trip the paper and repunch holes to fit the record. It wasn't too bad.
Overall it took me about 1.5 hours because I did everything by hand. I cut all the paper, repunched holes, x-acto knife to cut the record AND a heated nail for the record holes.
I know...I'm strange. I painted a vinyl record with FABRIC paint. But hey at the time it was all I had and I really wanted to try out this vinyl painting thing. So it's a bit sloppy but I have to say the fabric paint turned out nicely.
All in all it's nice. If you want quality go with acrylic. But let me know what you guys think!
My sister and I were bored one day and decided to get into Duct Taping. I have friends who do it and they say it's fun, cheap and easy. So I decided what the heck. Normally I'm a stenciler and I have been for a while. I love it. Changing crafts for a change was awesome. Well I hope you like our purses! Comments welcomed

Back of my purse. I'm debating whether or not to put something there..it's kinda plain.

I hope you enjoyed them! They were super easy to make and very fun as well.
