1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Beginner's altered book question... on: June 16, 2009 06:32:18 PM
Ok so I've done tons of research for about a year, because I would love to make an altered book, but I can't seem to find out some really simple things...the questions I have are:
            Do you remove the paper and replace it with some other thing, or do you glue big sections of the book together, and if so, how? Do you not remove any pages and just do a collage or whatever on every page...

Please help, I've already ruined a couple of books because I thought that I was supposed to glue blocks of pages together with this acrylic medium stuff but now the book is all warped and the pages are coming apart so if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it...Thank you.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / How to turn a broach to a hair pin on: May 16, 2008 07:49:56 PM

I really want to like attach it to a clip or something for my hair but it's really heavy and I'm worried if I do something wrong or use weak glue or something it will fall off the clip and break...so could someone point me in the right direction of what kind of adhesive or other types of methods to turn the heavy broach into a hair clip please?   Any help is appreciated thank you!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / PROM DRESS NIGHTMARE! help please... on: May 08, 2008 06:45:16 PM
Ok I bought this dress from la femme, and it's absolutely gorgeous but it was kind of big so I took it to get it altered since it was made of this really delicate satiny-silk material and I didn't trust myself with it. Now I try it on and it's all wrong, I need some suggestions please, I have to specific problems with it...

A - I bought it when I was five pounds thinner so now you can see the outline of my stomach, and it's backless so I can't wear like a control top stomach smoother, but I was wondering if anyone has ever used like tape on their stomach or something to make the dress drape smooth?

B - I went to fix the top because i have no boobs but now it's just tighter and the cups are still too big. I don't really wanna wear cups, because I don't wanna look slutty and boobified. Has anyone ever tried the hollywood tape or anything like that?

...ok so I dunno if anyone has any suggestions or anything, but even sympathy is appreciated haha Smiley, prom is next weekened... Sad AH!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / help with crocheted shirt from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on: April 02, 2008 05:13:15 PM
Ok, so I don't know very much about crocheted. I only know how to do basic crochet, nothing fancy, but I want to make a copy of this shirt from Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind. As far as I can see from the picture it is a basic tube with this crocheted flowers and stuff sewn on (sorry for my crochet ignorance). These are the best pictures I can find, so any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much. Smiley

This is the front:

lame shots that hopefully give a better idea of the details:
