Thanks!
Was thinking about doing another one in purple and pink!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ugly Vintage Scale --> Glamourous Vintage Scale! on: May 31, 2010 07:59:55 PM
I found this beat down vintage scale at the thrift store for $8 and thought it could use some snazzing up...



I had my boyfriend scrape off the nasty green plastic from the top while I:
-made a template out of sturdy glittery vinyl ($8 for 1/2 a yard)
-popped off the silver part and removed the dial
-spraypainted the sides of the dial and the sides of the scale ($3 for spraypaint)
-took some tinfoil off of my leftovers in the fridge and covered the top of the dial (made for a cool, textured metallic look!)
-slathered Aleene's tacky glue to the top of the scale and attached the vinyl
 
After letting the glue and vinyl adhere together overnight, I trimmed down the sides of my vinyl, glued em in place and ended up with my new fabulous scale!



I was stoked at how perfect it came out! Super cheap and easy little project!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Neon Stuffed Animal Charms (my 1st time with shrink film!) on: March 03, 2008 09:21:10 PM
I just made these last night, I think they turned out pretty cute! It was my first time using shrink film (cant find shrinky dinks anywhere, but I'm assuming shrink film is the exact same thing?), so once I practice a little more I think they'll be better...

I used my own drawings! These are tiny, only 1 inch tall.





Oh and I used a heart shaped hole punch if you couldn't tell what those holes are, haha.

Haha, I love Conan! I'm disappointed he shaved his beard though. Totally cute necklaces!

It's great... a bit strong for me straight, but with dr pepper, it's amazing.

Where do you live? I'm in California and we can get it at liquor stores... and Rite Aid just started selling it as well.

I've been looking for it as well, couldn't even find that shit online! But I live in SoCal so I will def have to try Rite Aid!!

i don't know if anyone mentioned this but you said you weren't sure what kind of tape it was. It sounds like electrical tape. its knd of plasticy??? thought that might help if others were going to try and make it. it sticks really great. anyway great job it looks awesome!! I love it.

No, it wasn't electrical tape! I'm pretty sure electrical tape would work fabulously though...It probably would work better than what I used too! The tape I used was something I got when I took a drafting class...not sure if it's called drafting tape? The texture is almost just like masking tape, but a little thicker and a little stronger.

Haha, thank you! I've been wearing my makeup the same way for about 5 years! It took a lot of practice but I can swipe it on in about 2 minutes now!  Cheesy

Thank you everyone! I pretty much love this top  Grin Esp because the black shirt was one of those plain blah shirts hidden in my dresser, never to be worn except for when lounging around the house!

Aww, thanks everyone! I've worn it about 3 times and already got some orange stains on the collar somehow...I put my bleach pen to good use though  Smiley
