Do you mean the plastic holder that's left after you use the scotch tape? If you could post a picture of one,I'm sure we can come up with some crafty ideas.

I love all these projects,but especially the copper dresser.You are all very talented! I have to show my ignorance,though-what's anaglypta?

I made a spaceship from one once.I put in a tiny spike green plastic ball(like a koosh ball),glued a google eye to it,put it inside the ball,and hung it on my daughter's moon stars planet mobile.They make perfect flying saucers!

If you have a garden and problems with deer or birds,I've read that you can lay chicken wire on the ground.Critters don't like the undulating surface.

Make wrist cuffs or bracelets?

Check out sweetsforevers's post for amazing melted bead goodness.Beads can be a fun addition to windchimes/mobiles.Or just put a variety in a box and sell on ebay/etsy as assorted beads for crafting.Or offer to do a swap for craft materials you will use.
And Mikokit,I think I saw this in Readymade about a year ago-there's someone who make and sells paperclip chandeliers! They're detailed,awesome,and expensive,and I think it all started with being bored at work.Sorry I don't know when I saw it;it's one of those must be seen to be believed items.

I'm tempted to do Louisville,kentucky just to see a project about my town that doesn't involve the kentucky derby!
Now the week leading up to the race,on the other hand...lots of silliness there.The run for the rodents at spaulding university-lab rats running for the coveted bowl of fruit loops.The run for the rose-waiters running with full wine glasses on a tray.Hot air balloon races,the steamboat race,the mini marathon,women wearing enormous bizarre hats...hmm...
It'd be more fun to do good old funky bardstown road.I'll have to think about this.It's tempting me.

Yay,I just got my package from Gleep! I love it all-she spoiled me.I'm going to let her post pictures rather than put them on the scanner,but I'll tell you this-she spoiled me!Thanks,Gleep!

No,not a screw top lid.It's just a regular round can of salted nuts.Took off the plastic lid and saved it.The top of the can has a metal rim,even a cardboard can of Planters will have a metal rim on top.I sawed through the can below the rim with an old kitchen knife.Doesn't have to be perfect-a little cardboard will remain,but it will be hidden.I tried a can opener.On one can it worked fine,on the next it dented the rim.Lay your paper and plastic in the plastic lid,use just a little glue behind your paper.Then use the metal rim on top of that,just a little glue behind the rim if you want.You don't want it to seep out onto your paper,and the rim fits the lid perfectly.Then I glued the braided handle from an old gift bag around the metal rim.You can unknot the handle at the ends for more lenght,you'll just have to hold that portion down for a little until the glue sets.Most handle pieces are long enough you can cut off the knotted end,but it will work.I think I used tacky glue for that.I used fabric tac to hold on the earring,but rubber cement,hot glue,or e6000 should work as well.And glued on flat magnet,of course.
Although I think a screw top lid would work.too-just haven't tried it yet.I suppose you could use resin,but I don't own any,I'm too broke to invest in some,and I have some stiff clear plastic I've saved from various packaging.I'd love to see others versions of this.
Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks! You can't really see it well,but the starry eyed one has a heart shaped bead for her mouth.
