2001  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Chinese Papercuts on: January 30, 2004 01:56:33 PM
my mom picked some up when we went to china, but they were people.  she just framed them.

I think they'd look awesome as a journal cover, especially if you layered it with some silk underneith....  *drool*

this reminds me, one of those paper cuts was this really cool looking girl...  must remember to convince my mom to give it to me!
2002  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:tin foil from hershey kisses on: January 30, 2004 01:54:14 PM
actually, unfortunitly, the silver part from gum wrappers only stick by themselves because it's still still sticky from the glue that was holding it to the paper.  so, hersey's wrappers won't do that.

BUT.....  I have successfully used them to cover notebooks.  you just have to use double stick tape or the like.  (elmers tended to peel off.  I would have tried other types of glue, but I had double stick tape handy and was impatient to boot.)

those are great!  I really like the one with cards about you.  that's a really cute idea.

oh, and I'd love some tins!  I've been wantign to ask if anyone had any, but I was too afraid I'd sound greedy.  I just plain don't like altoids and don't know anyone who does!  I'd be glad to pay for shipping.  I wouldn't need too many.  I'll e-mail you.
2004  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re:Metal Lunchbox Purse? on: January 28, 2004 08:51:54 PM
I must second the fur lining.  I did that to my pink panther lunch box purse, oh, I think about two years ago.  I got the fur as a little half price reminent.  everyone thought it was awesome.

I also second nylon webbing.  that's what I replaced the strap on mine with (it was made for kids, so it had this aweful little fake patent leather strap...  god, it was horrible), and it help up great!
2005  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re:Pin-up Purse on: January 28, 2004 08:47:39 PM
so cute!  you did a splendid job.  I really liked the circle one.  but then, I'm more of a circle girl.  if I had the guts to walk around with a pin-up girl purse, I'd have to make one!  maybe a nice storage box will be in order...

oh, and one of the reasons I love this site is that you can see what other people are making, say "oh, what a great idea!" and then go and make your own version.  that's why I love you guys.    Cheesy

aww, now I so wish that I had a car here!  too bad, maybe in the summer I can join in.
2007  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re:First Quilt, I'm a proud girly! on: January 27, 2004 06:27:20 PM
I made a really simple quilt in a week or two for my friend for christmas.  it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped, but it was still cool.  that reminds me, I must take a picture of it next time I'm over there...
2008  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re:valentine crafts on: January 27, 2004 06:19:12 PM
hey, valentine's day is right after my and my boy's eight month mark!  what a coink-ki-dink!

I'm making my boy (hopefully!) a little photo album with some pictures of us from my birthday in it.  he has all these random photos that he has nothing to do with.  so, hopefully that will solve that!  he's also getting this cute little book I saw that's the world's history, only taken as quotes out of freshman test essays.  it's really funny, and he loves history.

I personally think that gifts are the best if they're what you really want.  I always just try and look at the person and see exactly what fits them, instead of what other people think should fit them.  even if the gift is very not appropriate for the holiday.  lol

good luck!
2009  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:capn' crunch handbag! on: January 27, 2004 01:47:31 PM
that reminds me of what my friend had in high school, only not as high tech.

she just took a pop tarts box, covered it in a couple layers of packing tape all the way around, inside and out, the top flaps too, and then just super glued some ribbon on as a strap.  I think she might have also used some velcro on the flaps, since they stoped closing nicely after a few days.

edit:  oh, and she was planning to make one out of one of those small sized cereal boxes that they sometimes sell in stores (not the tiny ones, the medium sized ones), but she never got around to it.
2010  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:skirt from huge pants on: January 27, 2004 07:22:53 AM
well, for pants that are too small, I've successfully opened up the side seams and inserted strips of fabric.  everyone thinks it looks cool.  I think it should look just as cool if it were a skirt.
