1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / whatzudoin's card gallery on: April 23, 2010 07:51:00 PM
Here are some of the cards I've made so far in 2010. I'll constantly be adding to the gallery as I make more! Sorry there are so many to start out, but I've been so busy I forgot to post them all after I made them. Smiley

I made books with my friend awhile ago. I thought I'd share two of the types we made.

Over Spring break recently my friend Kim and I got together to make cards. Below are the cards we worked on.  We did a baby card, thank you cards, and just random ones we could write anything in. I'd love feedback and your thoughts on them.Smiley







4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My first t-shirt recon on: April 06, 2008 04:54:10 PM
The following three pictures show my first try at t-shirt reconstruction. Smiley I used my old Linkin Park shirt. I tied the back by double strings instead of single although you can do it many different ways. I made knots tight, but not too tight where I couldn't take it off. I cut thin strips on the shoulders and then pulled them tight.  I'm extremely proud of my first try and I hope you like it. Smiley






I'm open to any comments or suggestions. I hope everyone likes it. Smiley

Below are my most recent cards that I've made. I even made designs on the envelopes to match the cards. I hope you like them. I'm actually storing these away until I need them. I went into a card making spree so that's why there are so many here. There will be more to come though.   Smiley

I'm calling this one hungry zombie girl. I'm fairly new to the whole atc thing. I haven't traded with anyone yet, but I'd love to do so. I posted three of my other cards under the newbie atc thing not that long ago.

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / fabric box tutorial on: February 24, 2007 01:28:49 PM
Here is a tutorial for the fabric boxes.


Fabric Covered Box
Instructions make a 5x5x2 ½ box

Supplies:

¼ yard (9”x 45”) of two coordinating fabrics
batting scraps
matt board
tacky glue
clothspins
masking tape
wet cloth for wiping glue
box cutter or exacto knife with new blade
ruler
pencil
scissors

Cutting Mattboard: Use an exacto knife or box cutter to cut and label the mattboard to the following sizes.

Outside Top - 5x5 inches
Outside Bottom - 5x5 inches
Inside Top - 4 ¾ x 4 ¾ inches
Inside Bottom - 4 ¾ x 4 ¾ inches
Outside sides (4 pieces) – 2 ½ x 5 inches
Inside sides (4 pieces) – 2 ¼ x 4 ¾ inches

Cutting the batting: Cut a piece of batting the same size as each piece of mattboard.


Cutting the fabric:  

Cut a piece of fabric a ½ larger (on all sides) than the “outside top” and “outside bottom” mattboard pieces.  The four “outside side” pieces will be covered as one piece. Tape the four “outside side” pieces together leaving an 1/8 inch gap between them to form one long piece. Cut a piece of fabric ½ larger (on all sides)than the entire strip.

Using the coordinating fabric cut a piece ½ larger (on all sides)than the “inside top”, “inside bottom”, and four “inside side” pieces. Note that the “inside side” pieces are done separately – NOT as one long piece like the outside.

Covering the box with fabric:

Begin covering the “outside” pieces of your box using the fabric you chose for the outside of your box.

One piece at a time, place the fabric on the table (pretty side down), lay a piece of
batting on top of it, then the mattboard on top of the batting. All layers need to be
centered neatly. Glue the four corners neatly in place. This step will help create nice
sharp corners when the box is done. Use a clothespin to hold it in place until it sets.
But don’t leave the clothespins on until the glue dries or the clothespin will be glued to your project.

Continue to glue down the four sides of each piece.
Use clothespins as needed until the glue sets.

Cover the four “outside side” pieces as one long strip.

Using the same method described above, continue to cover the “inside” pieces of the box using the coordinating fabric. Remember that the “inside side” pieces are covered individually – NOT as one long strip like the outside of the box.

Assembling the box:

Make a small fabric hinge the width of the box top from
a scrap of fabric. Attach this to the back of the
“outside top” piece and the “outside side” piece.

Make a small tab out of a scrap of ribbon and attach to
the back side of the “outside top” piece. This will be used to open and close your box.

Continue to glue the “inside” pieces to the “outside” pieces. Apply the glue all the way around and close to the edge of each piece and put a line of glue down the middle of each piece. Center each piece neatly. Use the wet towel to wipe an off any glue that leaks out along the edges. Use clothespins to hold in place until the glue sets firmly.  If they can be left in place until the glue dries, even better.

Glue the “bottom inside” and “bottom outside” pieces together. Use the wet towel to wipe an off any glue that leaks out along the edges. Use clothespins to hold in place until the glue sets firmly.  Set  aside.

Finishing the box:

Remove any clothespins. Fold the “outside side” pieces around to form the box. Glue the open edge together. . Use the wet towel to wipe an off any glue that leaks out along the edges.  Hold this edge in place with a strip of masking tape.

Place glue along the inside edge of the box bottom piece. Center it neatly against the box sides. Use the wet towel to wipe an off any glue that leaks out along the edges. To hold the box in shape while it dries, tape all around the box edges with masking tape. Let the box dry several hours or overnight if possible.

When dry, remove the masking tape. Check all the box edges to make sure the seams are sealed. You can add a dab of glue to any seam that did not seal the first time.

 
Enjoy your box!!!
