11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Storing Die-Cut Letters? on: March 21, 2011 05:01:37 PM
I have about 30 sheets of letters I bought on clearance at Michaels.  The only issue I'm having with them is that the sheets are very difficult to store.  No matter where I put them, some of the letters pop out and get hitched to other sheets and so on...

Does anyone have any good storage solutions?  I was considering punching them all out and storing them in boxes or jars based on design or letter...I just figured I'd get some feedback on it and see how all of you lovely crafters store them Smiley  thanks!
12  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Empty Glitter Pens? on: March 19, 2011 05:20:06 PM
I was cleaning out my crafts tonight (long overdue!) and I came across my old glitter pens.  Some of them are dried out and the tubes are kinda cool but I don't know what to do with them...any ideas?

13  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Little Tea Light Holders on: March 12, 2011 04:20:32 PM
I've been using an oil burner like its going outta style lately and I have been going through a bunch of tea lights.  Does anyone have any crafty ideas for the little tin things the tea lights come in?  I hate to just throw them out when I'm going through about 3 a day!
14  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Jackpot of JUNK on: February 24, 2011 10:40:37 AM
I think I hit the jackpot of junk in my basement!  But there are a few things I'm clueless as to what to do with...

I found a bunch of old windowpanes (some with glass and some without).  They are really neat and already rather antique-y looking.  I have some criss-cross type ones (makes diamond shapes) and I'm clueless as to what to do with them.  I'm thinking of taking a few and nailing them to a wall and putting pictures inside?

I also found a ton of pieces of wood and wood shavings.  I'm not great as a woodworker and neither is my boyfriend, so I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas to do with this stuff?  They're mostly 2x4 and bigger.

I'm sure I'll stumble across more things that I'm going to need help re-purposing, but I'll start with these things.  Any ideas would be great! Smiley
15  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / "5" Gum Packages on: February 18, 2011 07:19:19 AM
I'm so tempted to go out and buy a million of these packs of gum because I LOVE the packaging!  Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do with these?  They are a little smaller than the trident or dentine ice packages but a little thicker.  Here are some images (yes with craftster in the background!)

16  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Powdered Foundation on: February 08, 2011 07:31:35 AM
I have some old powdered foundation that expired a few years ago since its all natural...I found it in my mothers stuff because she got them as samples.  Does anyone know what I could possibly use this for?  I feel bad throwing it out since its really expensive stuff, plus I LOVE the jars its in.
17  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Awesome idea for jars! on: January 30, 2011 09:39:47 AM
I was going through my basement the other day and I found a TON of old jars that I couldn't bare to throw away. Some are those special canning jars that have the neat sealed lids and some are just regular mason jars...so while I was browsing the web today, I found an awesome tutorial to revamp old jars! I'm going to buy some food coloring right now to start making candle holders!

18  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / TONS of decks of cards on: January 29, 2011 07:00:30 AM
I have over a dozen decks of cards...my brother used to collect them, and somehow I got stuck with them when we moved...what can I do with them?  There's only so many paper craft things you can add decks of cards to...
19  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Old Coasters on: January 26, 2011 07:16:04 PM
So I have a set of 4 coasters with cat pictures on them (sorry to all you cat lovers, but they don't exactly match my decor) so I was thinking of revamping them somehow or maybe making nice wall tiles?  Does anyone have any ideas or ideas on how I'd go about revamping these into something nice?  The little holder they came in is really nice, also and I'd like to do something with that, too.
20  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Carpet/Vinyl Samples on: August 17, 2010 01:42:58 PM
I recently started working part-time at a floor covering store and I'm trying to clean it up a bit.  There are a TON of carpet and vinyl (linoleum) samples that have to be tossed...it's tough to think of ideas as to what to do with them...they are a few feet big.  Does anyone have any ideas?  I don't want to throw them away!
