James Bond themed birthday card - thanks to those who replied with glue solutions. I ended up using a minute amount of white glue, which you can't see in most places haha.

Front - gun barrel scene which opens all the bond movies - this is the original with the stunt double

Close up - card closed

Inside - the gun barrel outline on clear plastic - This is where I wrote my message

Inside - the blooooood

Address and Sean Connery

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Paper and plastic(ish) bonding issue: any suggestions? on: June 12, 2008 10:40:50 PM
Hey guys, I'm having some trouble bonding materials on a card.

The card is black card stock with a raised stripe pattern

The cut out is a semi-transparent almost plastic type of paper which rips, but is difficult to cut: I bought it from Michael's.

I used double sided tape to attach the semi-clear plastic-paper to the card, and in most areas it is okay, but in certain areas i am having trouble keeping the two materials bonded. In intricate cuts the plastic-paper is curling up. So I'm wondering what I can use to stick to down

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks guys!

I would love to make one! But I don't have access to a kiln over the summer... not that I would know how to use it for clay... do you think polyclay or air dry clay would work?

You know i've never tried, but if you could seal your joints pretty well it might work. Good luck if you do try it  Wink

I guess this kind of counts - I made an ocarina back in high school. Basically it's really easy and really fun.

I learned how to do this from the Complete encyclopedia of crafts.

To make your own it really isn't hard once you understand the process, if you've played a wind instrument you shouldn't have a problem with the reed, otherwise it might take you a little bit of time/frustration, but you'll be really happy once it works.

I made a turtle, my mouth piece is done wrong because I'm stubborn. The green is glaze and underglaze, the brown in the grooves on the shell, the finger holes and the swirl are acrylic. I carved and etched my ocarina after it had been drying for a few days, but I would suggest doing anything while it is still a little bit moist

Good luck! Hope that helps anyone who wants to make one.

that is such an interesting technique. how ever did you come up with it??

I saw a very large light a few years ago, an artist used pages of a bible to make a three tone image on a large light which leaned against a wall (I forget what the picture actually was) it looked great when turned on, but when off it looked kind of like a big mess haha

I originally wanted to use brown tape, like other artists have done, but I couldn't find the right kind of tape, so I was looking around for other materials for about a week haha.

Three images which I did not create, cut out of newspaper, taped to a vase to make light. Well okay, the "light" part is provided by electricity.

I used a glass vase is from Michaels and drilled a half inch hole into it. I used mismatched electrical parts to wire  this beast, but it's totally not a fire hazard... not at all... I know what I'm doing!

So I chose three and four tone pictures and used layers of paper to create the tones. The darkest colour is made by 3 layers of newspaper and hidden under the outside layer. While the lightest colour is simply the outside layer of plain paper. I cut each layer out of one piece of news paper and used double sided tape to attach the layers/pieces together.


monkey nipple.

The newspaper pieces are taped to the outside of the vase, but under a piece of white paper.
So when the light isn't turned on it is a very cool off white block.

light - off


The vase has two sides, the front has a skull, woman's face, and a shark.

Front - light turned on

The back of the vase has a very cool monkey, you don't think he's mad about being put on the back... do you?

Back - light turned on

Thanks for looking, have a great day Wink

Original art is not mine: check out the real artists.
