11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bubble Dress skirt base made from cardboard, top from broken sea shells on: October 22, 2010 02:54:39 PM
Last March we had a fashion show at my school. Well our theme was Atlantis, so basicly I decided to create a bubble (it orginally wasnt going to be that big but thats how it turned out) The top part is made from an old shirt, plastic sea shells broken up by a hammer, felt and for the halter part rope.  The bottom is made from cardboard and a metal waist band thing, and covered in felt, some sea shells, and the sand part is an old towel.
**This was made sophomore year of high school so its nothing near perfect**
Top(almost finished):


All outfit together:

More Infor:
    Lately my friends and I(along with the person in charge of fundraisers at Children's Miracle Network) have been collaberating on a fundraiser. The fundraiser would include a fashion show (with many of the pieces made of recycled material) tables with crafts to sell(and other designers/vendors), bands playing and a silent auction. Now comes time for your help. What kindof things do you think we should sell at the tables with crafts?(we have started making unique jewelry,some bags made of recycled bags, and thats about all)  There will be other tables too with food and what not. If you have an ideas or links to turtorals that would be greatly appricated, because the more money we raise the better. (all the money made goes to the cause)

Not the best picture, but here it is.(the person wearing it wasnt the person that wore it in the fashion show so its a little long on the person in the picture)

Maybe some black pillows with a subtle design (any ideas on what small print design)
5. All white furniture.
6. Needs a vanity or something to put in one of the corners.

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Unique Jewelry Holder on: December 19, 2009 06:04:17 PM
Well i think the title basicly speaks for it self. Its a jewelry holder made out of a mannequin head decompodged with scrapbook paper then topped with sparkly glaze, then spray painted white tree branches and a white painted(and covered in white tissue paper too) paper towel tube. And for the flower rings they are made out of tissue paper and scrap pieces of scrapbook paper. Sorry for the bad pictures I no longer have it or I would take better ones. Hope you like it and feel free to a leave a comment saying what you do or don't like or whatever. (it would be greatly appricated) thanks!   

** Orginally posted in the wrong section**(still neeed to delete that post, so know its here)

When It was all finished.





The head before I added glaze on it







And last the flower rings that were on it


17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fall Display Tray from Picture Frame on: December 19, 2009 05:46:36 PM
It basicly goes like this: Old Picture frame we never used and got on sale+ Pressed leaves from our front/back yard ='s a new fall display tray. It oringlally had three candles in different sizes on the tray but i don't know where they went. One of the candles was covered in leaves, and another had raffi and some twigs tied around it.

Anyway here it is.






Comments? Should I paint or do anything to the frame?(I was orignally thinking crackle the frame?)  Anyother surgestions or comments would be amazing! Thanks
18  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Transformation from nasty to wearable on: December 06, 2009 09:52:59 AM
Well it all started with these pair of white flats that were really nasty and most of the bottoms of them had been chewed out by a puppy at one time. So I decided to try to transform them to something that i could possibly wear. I only have one out of the two done so far, but i need some opinions on them.

Detail of what they look like now




Here they are a before and after picture





Should I continue and do the other one? There kind of fraying whats that stuff you put on them so they don't?Anything i should add or change on them? Or anyother comments or rootstock's. Thanks

20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / "That reminds me of something they would put in a Macy's window.." **TUTORIAL** on: December 04, 2009 11:08:00 PM
The title is a quote someone said about it.I was pretty ecstatic with that compliment, though I don't think it really deserved it. Anyway the tree with pink/green was constructed out of wrapping paper, glue, and a tall foam cone. The smaller tree I used scrapbooking paper (I think like two 12X12 sheets) And the snowman is made of two foam balls, ribbon, two pom poms, tissue paper, and then coated with a layer of sparkly glaze. Tray just painted white and fake snow on it.It was actually pretty simple to make.

Red One with Tan Bow



Newest Set (Sorry its a tad blurry)


White One


Another set



Here it is(excuse the messy craft table)



How to make the trees!!!! (never have written one of these before so if you have more questions just ask)

1. Get supplies: 1 foam cone(in whatever size you desere) **I recommend the white foam ones, but green will work**, white glue or hot glue if you use the green foam cone, ruler, something to cut with, and wrapping paper or scrapbook paper. The amount of paper demends on how big the cone is, it took me about 4 12X12 sheets of scrapbook paper(2 sheets of each design) to cover this small cone in this how-to.


2.Cut the 12X12 paper in scrips that are 3 inches wide(you can make them less or wider if you like), so they are 3X12 now. *note when you wrap them around the tree you will trim them to smaller sizes but they will remain 3 inches wide*



3.Next wrap the design strip you want to start with around the top of the cone, I would cut off the top of the cone so that is practically flat.


Then cut the strip where it just goes around the top one time, I cut mine a little bigger(better than too short) but the less overlapping the better.

4.Now fringe(you can make them wide or small) the strip you just cut to fit around the top good, but make sure to leave about 1/4 '' at the top so it doesn't rip easy.


5.Take your fringy piece and add glue on the top part (where the slits aren't at) **If you are using white glue** Now if you are using a hot glue gun put the hot glue on the foam and then apply the fring strip to it.




6. Do the same thing with your next different design strip, and then glue it under the other strip you already have on there.




7. Keep going until the tree is finished, alternating back and forth between your different design papers*note you can make it just one design if you want* I push all my strips up so its easier to glue on the next one and it makes it more fluffy at the end.



8. Start at the bottom and fluffy dowwn the strips (so the other side isn't showing)
Here i have already got up about half way up the tree.



9. Cover the top with a piece of leftover paper. Add a ribbon, star or whatever you want on the top. Whala a tree!!



How to Make the Snowman

1.Gather two foam balls, (one slightly bigger than the other) Tissue paper ( I used different hues of blue) Black sharpie/marker for the eyes and mouth, a little orange conbsturction paper, and just some glue. Optionaiol a a small peice of wire to stick the two foam balls together.
2. Tear chunks  of tissuepaper  and mcollege onto the two two foamballs. Cover completely both of them making sure to do only one thin layer. Wait for it to dry.
3.
Keep doing it layer after layer until you are statisfined on how it loos .
4. Then if you want add a layer of sparlky  glaze . Let that dry.
5. Put the two foam balls together either by strong glue or poking a little wire imbetween them and then adding glue around the wire. Let dry until sturdy.
6. When the snow man body is completely dry you can draw on the face with the marker. . Fold the orange paper into a smaill cone and add as the nose.
7.Then with some ribbon make earmuffs and add two pom poms at the end of it.  Or you can make a little hat for it.
8. Finally get some  ribbon and tie is around the neck and vola a snow man.
Any comments, critiques, or anything else would be greatly appreciated! Smiley
