This is awesome, you did a fantastic job. I love this movie, and seeing this, you made me realize I haven't watched it in over a year. I jump everytime Fizzgig pops out of the hole. I know it's coming, but it gets me every time.

I'm speechless. All of these products are amazing. I find I cannot single them out to comment upon and praise. To attempt such a task would take far to long.

This is fantastic. It makes me want to once again attempt a plush monster. I lack style in my designs, but perhaps this Yaktak can be my muse, or at least introduce me to some of his friends in imagination land.
25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Japanese mocchi box knock-off Questions. on: December 31, 2008 11:16:50 PM
Update: Here is a link to the company? that makes the Mochi I listed here.


Long Explanation:
My grandmother is Japanese, and her friends are Japanese.  Since it's the holidays, her friends have been visiting.  It's customary to bring a gift when visiting, no matter the time of year.  Since it's the holidays, there are special packages to be given as gifts when visiting. 

One of my joys is looking at packaging, and Japanese packaging can be incredibly nice.  Many of the boxes give you the impression that the packaging cost more than the actual item inside.  One in particular caught my eye.

It was for an arrowroot mocchi, I forget the brand, but here is a look at the packaging.


Inside was a small square of mocchi and some sauce.  The mochi was not really to my liking, but the packaging was.

I decided I needed to replicate this.  The design was thrown together, to keep from showing a naked box.





Heres a shot to show how it folds together.  There are gaps at all four corners.  The packaging assumes there is more packaging inside.



So now for the question.  I feel like these would make great gift boxes, only problem is, I don't know what to put inside to gift.  I thought of a cookie,  I could fit two medium cookies inside.  I want it to be satisfying, given only one box.

Any ideas?

That's terrifying, it's so unsettling...but I love it.  I just want to stare at it. 

Nice work!
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Argyle Moose Messenger Bag on: November 18, 2008 12:30:50 PM
I designed this bag in the spring, but just barely made it yesterday.  The original plan called for burlap.  I made the bag with burlap, but it was not stable, so I made the bag over again.  That first bag also had a flap that turned out 6" too long.  It's like my stagecraft teachers always said, measure twice cut once.  Advice I failed to take to heart.  The shoulder strap turned out to be 10" too long.  Sigh.

It's made from thick canvas and there's a pocket inside.  The moose is my design.  He's screen printed. Which, if anyone knows how to keep the transparency down while burning, please let me know.  I use a sheet of glass, but the image warps and I can never get the registration right.

And here he is.


And me as a moose:


I guess I'm on an animal kick: bunny hoodie, bear hat, and now moose bag.

Edit:  On the first bag the flap was canvas and the rest was burlap with a layer of canvas underneath.

Wow Cealy, I never would have thought of that.  That's brilliant.
