wow sweets--you are some versatile woman!! The items are made are wonderful!!  Of course, my favorite is the elephant bag; no, it is the melted bead owl--well, no, it is the etched glasses or maybe the goldfish bling!! all of it?

I want to know how you made the holes in the lego? And, the little tin--where do you find something like that?

ha!!  Thanks... Smiley  You are too funny!

I made the holes in the Legos with an itty bitty drill bit (I'm not sure the size, but I can check in the morning).

The little tins are THE best!  They can be used for so much.  Smiley  I have some Wisted right now (my birthday is coming up...hints people, hints! lol)  http://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/fin7c.html

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

Thanks!

For the little owl, I made a tin foil mold, filled it with multi facet beads http://www.thisandthat4you.com/Qstore/P__1123175540.html and then baked the life out of it.  Smiley  After it was cooled, I drilled it for the keychain portion.

I'm not sure what temperature I baked him at though... probably around 375.  That seems to be the "average" temperature I melt everything around.  Smiley

Here's a link to some of my other melted things http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=101446.0  At the bottom of my first post there are links to more.  Smiley  There are lots of pictures and info in those threads, too.

Yay!  I'm really glad.

You know how you look at something for so long it doesn't even look like what it's supposed to be anymore?  A painting, a word, etc... this poor little guy looked like a duck to me when I sent him.  Wink  Just kidding, lol!

Do you need to use those certain beads?  Or do all beads melt?
