Here is the one I made for my sis for Christmas! Thanks for the added advice Llola!

What a neat idea! The textbook graphics look awesome! And, thanks for sharing how you made the glue...much cheaper than buying a bottle of envelope glue!

I have some old textbooks lying around that would be excellent candidates for sacrifice! Hmmmm...now I'll have to do some digging.

Opened it up made a remark on how it was a good idea and can't wait to pass it around      (which I think means regift it) 

This is a good thing Wink This means that your cute little elephant will make an appearance at next year's swap...and the year after that! Maybe it will even become the running symbol of the swap. Of course, eventually someone may want to keep it Wink

6694  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Ribbon Votive Holders on: December 26, 2007 09:13:11 AM
Very simple! I took about a yard (use more if you want more than 3 votives) of 1.5" wide ribbon, and folded it in half. Then, starting at the folded end, I measured about 3 3/8" and pinned to mark the spot. I measured at 3 3/8" intervals down to the cut end of the ribbon. Then, I stitched lines at the pins, trimmed the ribbon ends, added fray check and the votive holders and I was finished! The votive holders I used were from Pier 1, because they were fairly straight. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled this year for other ones that might go on sale so I can make it for even less $$.

Hmmmm...I might have to give these a try. The technique looks similar to the straw shrimp that I've seen somewhere around here. I've managed to make a couple of decent shrimp, so I might be able to handle a grasshopper! Wink

Thanks for sharing such a neat little project!

I am in love with Bob! He is such a cutie! I love his short hair! I wish I could paint eyes like that...

I love how, in the first picture, he looks like he has little "love handles!"

I've looked everywhere for black shrink plastic and can't even find regular shrink plastic! Seems like the stores around me don't carry it anymore...the horror!

I do have a supply of non-black shrink plastic, so I think I may be shrinking a bunch and then painting them with acrylics. I have a Christmas party after Christmas (last year it ended up being in April with all of the busy schedules), so I have plenty of time to whip up a bunch of these!

And, I love how you have a "villain" side and a "hero" side!
6698  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crocheted Snowflake on: December 24, 2007 07:43:05 AM
Gosh, I've made a million little snowflakes the last couple of weeks.
None are nice and flat and perfect like that!
I starched them and stuff, but they still seem mangled and weird.

I pinned the heck out of them and sprayed them with "Stiffen Stuff." The first one I ever made looked a little more "bumpy." I think it was because I may have twisted the snowflake when I was making the picots. Now, I pay much more attention to make sure that doesn't happen.

The 8 points have always annoyed me, too.  Wink You're explaination is the one I learned, too. I much prefer your version! (If only I could get some real one's here, but with all the storms the country's been having, maybe that's not such a good idea to be wishing for!)

We've had a lot of snow here (although it rained yesterday). Last week it was snowing while I was outside at bus duty and one of my students had a perfect snowflake on his coat. It looked like a tiny plastic snowflake!
6699  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Handmade Rubber Stamps (sign ups Dec 5-Dec 27, Sendouts Jan18) on: December 23, 2007 08:21:41 PM
I've been looking around for images to carve. I've got a couple in mind, so I hope that they match what my partner wants. Otherwise, I'll just have to make them for myself Wink

craftADDchick, I would have no idea that the small d ring wasn't a design element - I think it looks pretty neat and might borrow it  Smiley 

As Pee-Wee Herman would say, "I meant to do that!" Well, I'll mean to do it from now on...
I'm at my mom's house now for the holidays (*gong show*) and I noticed the one I gave her last year looks like its taken a few mud baths so she needs a new one (and I noticed because she pulls it out every 1/2 hour, talk about your lipchap addict).  Maybe something that doesn't show dirt so much  Tongue

I, too am a chapstick addict (someone once told me I had a "chappy habit"). And yet, I don't have one of these for myself! Of course, I'd have to make about a dozen for all of my various tubes of lip balm...sigh...
