1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who Birthday Card on: March 22, 2012 06:46:22 AM
I'm ashamed of how long it's been since I've last posted. I'm finishing my last year of college, and it's been a very stressful time. I just wanted to share this birthday card I made, because last year, I made this friend a 3D TARDIS card, and continuing with the theme of multidimensional Doctor Who birthday cards, I decided to try my hand at pop-up cards.

This is based off the episode Vampires of Venice when the Doctor pops out of a cake at his companion-to-be Rory's stag party.

I'd like to apologize in advanced for the quality of the images. I had to use my web cam, because my digital camera stopped working.

It reads Matt! Thats a relief! I thought I had burst out of the wrong cakeagain.

And my post script reads     P.SThat reminds me, theres a girl standing outside in a bikini. Can someone let her in, give her a jumper? Lucy. Lovely girl Diabetic.

Both directly taken from the episode.

It took me about two hours to figure out how to make it, and actually construct it. Most of the time went to figuring out how to get the Doctor to pop up out of the cake when the card opens.

I hope he likes it. I hope you like it as well.

Thank you for taking the time out to read my post. Cheers!
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / TARDIS Birthday Card on: March 20, 2011 10:32:04 AM
I haven't posted anything in a long while, but I was inspired to post this birthday card I made for my friend. After he jokingly replied "A TARDIS" when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, I decided to take him up on his word.  It took me a little while (and a little math) to figure out but it all worked out in the end Smiley

So, in case you didn't know, the TARDIS is the Doctor's ship/time machine. On the outside it looks like an English police call box from the 50s/60s, but "it's bigger on the inside". I wanted my card to work in a similar way, that when it opens up, it unfolds to a much bigger piece of paper than the outside would indicate.

This is a picture of the "inside" of the card. I made it out of 4 rectangular pieces of bristol paper, with thinner drawing paper strips between each one. The strips fold in on themselves when the card is closed and unfold when the card is opened. I added a flap to work as a kind of latch to keep the two loose ends closed when the entire thing is folded up. I wrote the message on the inside.

On the outside, I drew the TARDIS exterior. The pyramid top is a separate piece made up of four bristol triangles and a strip running along the bottom. The top of the bottom part of the TARDIS slips into the pyramid.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: looking for a men's slipper pattern on: November 29, 2009 08:23:49 PM

Here is the website I always go to when looking for any pattern...they usually have a really good selection of patterns al all sorts:


Here is a link to the slipper section http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/slippers.php. There is also a men's section http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/mens_clothing.php, I'm not sure what it will be listed under.

These are also worth a glance: http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Slipper_Knitting_Patterns__L30021004.html

I hope this helps. Best of luck! Please let us know how your project work out!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: UGG "Classic Cardy Boots" on: November 29, 2009 08:17:57 PM
The knit part of the boot seems pretty straight forward, like a 1x1 rib.

Here is a pattern for something kind of like it: http://www.cocoknits.com/knit/garments/accessories/prairieboots.html
The leg is composed of garter stitch instead of rib. You can probably play around with the pattern and change the stitch to give it more of look you want.

Here is an idea for the sole of the boot: http://alison.knitsmiths.us/cat_these_boots_were_made_for_knitting.html    this comes from here: http://www.diynetwork.com/knitty-gritty/if-the-shoe-knits/index.html. If you can find a really cheap pair of shoes with Ugg-like soles, you might want to consider it.

I hope this helps somewhat...Best of luck!
