thanks, everyone, for the suggestions! i really am leaning towards some kind of jewellry. the stamps are sooo tiny and thin that it is really hard to read when stamped on anything but paper. :-( but, i am happy to learn about polymer clay and all the possibilities there are!
no mind "senior member's" reprimands -- it just makes me laugh :-) but thanks for sticking up for me J/A/S/O/N! xo
Do I have this right-- You have the keyboard keys, the equivalent of the letters I am punching on my plastic keyboard right now.
Hi! thanks for responding! My keys are not from a computer keyboard or anything, they are actually printing stamps from an old typewriter!
I think it'd be cool if you took the best looking/most interesting keys and used them in/around a picture: have a picture in a shadow box type frame & glue on the keys as a border; or take old, semi-interesting pictures & embellish them by adding in random keys.
Whatever you do with them, I hope you post pictures-- I would be most interested in seeing the results, wherever or however many places you post them;)
OOHH!!! i like that idea, too! and it reminds me -- i have some crafts at home that i should post here. wow, im starting to really love this site! (and can't wait to have my students try and make a purse out of candy wrappers!)
i love you all!!! will post pictures!
PS - about making jewellry.... i dont know what kind of equipment i need, i dont know the names of pieces of jewellry-making parts, etc. id really love it if someone could point me in the right direction! also, i live in japan so i dont have access to as many crafting supplies as i could find in the states. still, im sure i can make something cool!
