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!

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.
Bah!

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!

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...

My mom did it once and they actually look really nice! She didn't glue them down or anything, the glass from the frame held them in place. I'd love to see a pic of what you do with yours!
7267  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crochet Jellyfish on: December 23, 2007 08:21:31 AM
This is great!!  Do you need to know more than single crochet to make this?  I'd love to get the pattern and would if I knew that I could make it.  Smiley

I just got the pattern and all you need to know is chain, slip stitch and single crochet (increase and decrease, too!). Well within your range of capabilities (oh queen of the crocheted TMNT!) Wink
7268  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Rosie Clusters on: December 23, 2007 08:15:00 AM
thats ok if you don't join for awhile. no one else has lol i'm in a crochetalong by myself Smiley

I think I'll be joining in soon! A gal I work with is expecting a baby in April and I have a stash of baby yarn that is just crying out to be used. This looks like a nice uncomplicated pattern...she's having a boy, though, so it won't be such a pretty pink Wink

oh, sorry, the CAL is actually for the sunrise sunset afghan thats sitting to the left of the rosie clusters blanket. but starting a CAL for this blanket is a good idea too.

That's what I get when I only read the newest post! Wink
7269  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: (Now with tutorial!) - SODA/BEER cans - Almost Unlimited Uses! Charms (5 Pics) on: December 23, 2007 08:13:56 AM
Thanks a lot, I feel a lot better know about my purchase.  I can't wait to see your tags once you've sizzixed them.  Wink

I was at a meeting and a girl was drinking root beer from a can with a cool bubble pattern. She looked at me very strangely when I asked if I could have the can afterwards so I could make something out of it. Now that I have the dog tag die, I can finally use it (and stop knocking it off of the kitchen counter Wink )!

I have seen people put them in frames with colored paper behind them. I also just saw (in the newest Crafts n Things magazine) that someone stitched them to blocks and made a quilt out of them. And, somewhere else, I saw somebody stitch a bunch of them together to make a table runner.

I'm a bit jealous of your doily stash!
