1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: A new project I'd like to try... on: December 30, 2007 11:47:31 AM
Ohhh excited, my mum ordered a jar cutter for me for Christmas - I'll post some nice pics when I've made some glasses etc.

Thanks again!

Call them up and order a "JAR CUTTER"  and then ask them specifically what sanding blocks you'll need so as not to cut your mouth when you drink from your gorgeous new glasses!

Thank you Karen! Smiley Just this morning I got a glass cutter delivered through the post, but I guess it's different to a jar cutter - ahh well, maybe they'll both come in useful. I'll be following your advice though, thanks!

I have a picture in my head of a coffee table, where the top is clear perspex and it is half-filled with blue water with lots of duck floating in it. It would have a perspex top on so you could still put your coffee on it. And every time you wibbled the table they'd all bob about!

I really hope by juice boxes you mean cartons, otherwise I won't make any sense!

Wash them out, cut into strips and weave into gift boxes and gift bags for xmas, tied with pretty ribbon. Smiley


Hope that works...

I really want to dut up bottles to make tumblers, but I don't know how, so I started a topic on it in the glass forum...

I've seen someone use the border idea before, it looks great!

But my productive suggestion is to put up an "offered" add on Freecycle in your area, because I'll bet there are *loads* of home-brewers looking for wine bottles - fruit season just went, and my boyfriend just bottled 2 gallons of blackberry wine (12 bottles)! He'll be needing another 12 when he bottles the mead as well.

Hope that helps. Smiley

There's always the unravelling option - pull it all undone cartoon-style and knit something new?

... but I have no idea where to start!

I'd like to make glass tumblers by chopping the top off pretty and interesting bottles... Yay for recycling! Unfortunately, I have no idea where to start.

Does anyone have any advice? Smiley

Thanks in advance...
