That's cool. What is the flamingo made of?
13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bingo card journal on: August 18, 2007 06:35:45 PM
Here's my first one, right from St. Adalbert School Bingo hall. I made the text block myself from manila paper and trimmed it using a ream cutter and a corner trimmer.

Discoveries:
1. Sewing signatures on the sewing machine with the longest stitch setting works really well. If you fold the top sheet of the signature in half you can use it as a sewing guide. It even makes the signatures easier to fold!
2. A brayer works great for spreading glue onto endsheets so that it's not too thick.
3. You really need to check twice before you glue your board covers on to make sure that one isn't upside down. LOL  Tongue

r.e. the exploding book thing with the pages going out in every direction:

In one of my 1940's Workbasket Magazines they talk about making a door stop from a catalog by stuffing the outer edge of each page backward into the spine without creasing the fold, so that it makes that rounded shape with the page... not good at explaining it. Then they say to varnish it. Three or four of those would make a pretty interesting coffee table leg, I think.

Wow! You're good. All I could come up with were sketch book/journal covers. I may have to go pick those things up after all. Thanks!

I saw boxes and boxes of old bingo cards at the salvage yard. Alas, I have no idea what to do with them. Any ideas?

Burlap makes a good base for homemade rugs. You can either sew the fabric on using an old Singercraft attachment, or you can use a needlepunch. I'm not that good with these things, but all the rug making techniques that require a base usually call for burlap.

Holy cow! Those dresses are awesome, and so many of them, too! I love them all, but the green and brown one is just way too cute!
