2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Journal feedback? on: January 23, 2006 02:12:58 PM
After successfully testing the craft waters at Christmas with The Boy (a Family Guy 'Stewie' stenciled shirt) and low budget, I like the idea of a relationship journal/scrapbook for Valentine's Day.
(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63340.0)

I want to know if anyone has done one/given one, and if it seems practical. The Boy and I go to college in the same town, but at different schools, so we'll be seeing each other mainly on weekends. I thought this might be something nice for during the week (we'd each have one, I'd write in 'his' and he'd write in 'mine'). I am fairly sure he'll like it/use it because it's from me. And then there will also be peanut butter/chocolate goodies to supplement the journal.

I replied to the original post I linked to, but wanted to see if anyone had feedback here too.

Thoughts, opinions?

Thanks!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Book Box on: December 10, 2004 09:25:44 AM
I found the perfect box for my sister. The box is made of pine and shaped like a book. The spine of the book pulls out and makes the drawer of the box. I'm trying to figure out what to use that will make it look like a real book. I'll probably paint the edges of the 'pages' gold, like a book with gold leaf pages. I don't want to use leather/pleather on the box, but I want it to look like nice. Any ideas? Thanks!
4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Ideas for Dorm Decorating- doors & hallway! on: October 21, 2004 01:32:12 PM
Our wing (half of a floor in an L-shaped building) will be starting to decorate for Halloween. We will be judged. Nothing can obstruct the floor because it is a wheel-chair accessable dorm. I'm thinking webbing on the ceiling down the hall, tombstones. I'm pretty sure lights won't work with the way the doors shut. I work at a party supply store and have a few small things, but I'm looking for a way to do the hall without spending megabucks. Nothing extremely fragile. I've never decorate a large space for Halloween before. Thanks!!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Cereal Box Purse on: August 23, 2004 09:41:34 PM
Has anyone made a box from a cereal box? I have a Honey Bunches of Oats box that is the perfect size for a messanger-like bag. I think I just need to reinforce it before I line and decorate it. I had to remove a side in order for the purse to have an opening. Are there some materials that would work better to attach the flap and strap to the box? I was thinking contact paper/packing tape for it, but I am worried about it looking sloppy-cheap. Any tips on making this look classy? I plan on decorating it collage style with some fun things I've saved (fortunes, notes, playbills, photos, wrappers). All ideas are much appreciated. Thanks!
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Old, non-working Gameboy on: July 20, 2004 01:29:18 PM
As we're getting ready for a garage sale, I found my old gray Gameboy that no longer works. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for it. I'd like to keep it on display, in some way, as a decoration or with a new function. Help!
