First, i'm sorry I haven't posted sooner, I was looking for the responses in the original thread, LOL.

OMG, sorry that the glitter spilled calluna!! Maybe I should have wrapped it with plastic wrap also. I will post a pic of what you sent me later.

I don't remember exactly where I got the tiny keys to be honest.. probably in the scrapbooking section at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

Oh boy! I received the envelope from loves2experiment today, and she is a champion stalker. Everything is exactly to my taste. Squee!

First off, the envelope arrived in great shape with no postage due.


She made it from a recycled piece of paper that looks like HP printing instructions. And it fit the contents exactly, so I would say she folded it around them and then glued it together. Just guessing, of course.

And on to the delights I found inside. All together:



Closeups. These beautiful papers:


On on the reverse sides, more cool patterns:


More goodies:

There was a lovely big piece of watercolored paper. Did you paint this, loves2experiment? It's so pretty. And a real pressed leaf, which unfortunately was damaged in shipping. But it will still have a home here, don't worry. I love it!

And, some cute little leafy punched shapes. Green print on one side, cream print on the other.

AND, a fashionable tiny drawstring bag with a leafy design. It even has a gusset, so I had to turn it inside out to see how it was made:


She just turned up the bottom a little bit before sewing it. So easy. It's fun to learn new things in the Craftster classroom, eh?

But wait, there's more!

Textured paper with two friendly walking-away elephants. A piece of yummy blue textured paper. A quotation printed on vellum, "The way to be happy is to make others so." Three little embossed garden theme squares that I adore. And a paper cutout with more inspirational words.

Ahhhh. I feel so good. Relaxed and spoiled. Thank you so much, loves2experiment. It doesn't get any better than this.

I'm glad you liked everything saxonsweetie. Most people never believe me when I say this but those specific charms were made with regular old #6 plastic. The kind that salad bar containers are made out of. I printed the images right onto it. I sent you some real shrink plastic though, the good stuff  Wink

I have to ask,and I still have the sheet you sent me, but how do you find salad bar containers that are flat enough to run through a printer???

I am loving all of the awesome papers and loves2experiment, that envie is just great. Great way to recycle wasted sheets.

 Just thought I'd mention this:(and I haven't tried it at home)
At a company I worked for years back, the owner had a huge office style printer. I got"cleaver and decided to try an experiement. I taped a flat silk..to a piece of card stock. not the thin china silk, the next grade up with more body... Shantung... and ran it thru his printer. IT WORKED! I found that it had to be taped real flat, and tight, or it would get jammed up. The ink faded soon, but it lasted long enough to do some artwork, or other embellishments to it.
 Also, I ran that insignia cloth thru my own printer. Here's what happened:
without spraying a sealer, the ink was fuzzy. But once it was sealed, with a clear spray, Dry, of course, it worked great! I was printing stick-on labels with my contact info for my air dancers I make.
BTW: Lc knows what it is, but insignia cloth is a smooth, even weave fabric, with a sticky back. It has a peel-off backing, for sign makers, and commercial applique, like boat sails, etc. I use it on my windsocks to cut out designs.
I have not tried to run any plastic thru my printer. My only concern is the ink would smear???
would you have to spray that too?

In good ol' Maryland we luckily have 2 salad bar container sizes. The little ones, and then the gigantic ones. They have flat tops and bottoms and I cut those out, they wind up being about the size of a sheet of paper. #6 plastic is fairly thin, so it'll go through almost all printers.

KLKing- Yes, isn't that amazing. I hate when you get charged a crazy amount for something, like custom printed fabric or the expensive special 'print on fabric' kits but I've seen a lot of homemade printed fabric, especially here on craftster. I haven't given it a try, but I wanted to try my hand at some.

Wouldn't that be an awesome swap! To print out fabric we've designed ourselves to send, OOAK and a good excuse to try it.  Grin

I print on fabric all the time on my laser printer. LOL Just iron on freezer paper for stability.

K, can I run that stuff you sent through my color laser you think?
