11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Stamped Candles on: December 31, 2010 04:02:57 PM
I taught how to decorate candles with stamped images in one of my card making classes

You might be thinking why are candles in the papercraft section.

The image is actually stamped on tissue paper and I used a heat gun to adhere the images to the candles.

There is a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers showing how to do this.  It is easier and quicker to do than you think.

I am still in the Christmas crafting mood.  Nothing like getting a head start on the Christmas crafting.

These are some paper mache  ornament shapes that I have had for a couple of years.
Some paint, panne velvet, beads, braid and do dadds and I have some lovely ornaments for this year's Christmas tree.

Some scrapes of felt, some beads, cord and a few odds and ends.  Mix them together and you get gingerbread bird house ornaments.

These dolls have been UFOs for the longest time.  I finally got around to finishing them so I can sell them at a craft fair next month

16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas ornaments in Turquoise, Copper and Orange; TUTORIAL ADDED on: October 02, 2009 07:55:13 PM
My Christmas trees are usually decorated in colour themes.  Each year I have a different colour theme.  I have been making some ornaments to add to my growing collection of tree ornaments.

some Turquoise



The following is a mini tutorial for the Turquoise and some of the copper ornaments.

1. Make a 'leaf' shape template from card stock or a cereal box.  It must be symmetrical.
2. draw around your template on to a cereal box. You will need 5 or 6 depending on the shape or your template.
3.  Tape the edges of your shapes together with small pieces of masking tape.   Start at the middle  working towards the point.  Once you have all 5 or 6 shapes taped together you can use 2 or 3 slightly longer pieces of tape to keep all the points more securely together.
4. Using the same template, draw enough shapes on the back of your fabric or decorative paper to cover your ornament.  Cut shapes out of fabric of paper.
5. Glue the fabric or paper on to the ornament.  I use what ever glue that is not going to bleed through the fabric I am using.
6. Cover the seams with braid using hot glue gun.
7. Put the head pin through the bead cap and make a loop using plyers.  Use the plyers if necessary to make the bead cap more 'ornament top' like.  This will depend on what bead caps you are using.
8. Put a blob of hot glue on the top of your ornament where the bead cap is going to be located. Then place the bead cap on the glue. Don't put the glue into the bead cap as you are likely to burn your fingers.  The hot glue heats the metal bead cap and it takes forever for it to cool down so that the hot glue will harden.
9. Tie a piece of gold or silver cord on the loop at the top and you have finished.  Put finished ornament on Christmas tree.

Varying the shape of your template will give different results, so will the number of shapes used in your ornament.

I haven't made a bag in ages.  In September I made a tote bag covered in vinyl so that I can carry around the latest project I am working on.

18  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Shoe Ornaments on: September 03, 2009 04:27:28 AM
A couple of years ago,  I bought all these really tacky looking Christmas tree shoe ornaments from K-mart that were on sale for 60% off.  I bought all that they had left. About 20 in all.

The base form of the shoe was really good.  Hard plastic and a great shape.  They were just covered in really cheap nasty fabric and the standard of finish was really poor. I pulled off the nasty fabric and put the shoes in my craft room.  During the last year of so, I have been re-covering the shoes.  Each shoe is different and is recovered in based on the colour scheme of which every Christmas tree  I put it on.  (Did I mention that I put up 5 Christmas trees of various sizes each year).

Anyway even though Halloween is not officially celebrated in Australia,  I have been making Halloween style ornaments for the last year or so.  I thought I would redo some of my shoe ornaments Halloween style.  These are not really spooky Halloween but fit in with my halloween colour scheme.

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I has been so long since I have made any jewellry on: June 20, 2009 04:39:30 PM
I don't even remember how long it has been since I made jewellry,  But I made these necklaces last weekend.  I like the eclectic mix of charms and beads. They have been designed so the more charms can be clipped on to them.
