101  Handmade Valentine card out of old book pages in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by malmow on: February 23, 2009 11:15:24 AM
I made a hollow book for my sister for Christmas, so now I have 300 pages lying around that I refuse to throw away. I've been using them to make cards (and for packing material, in some cases). I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day. I was inspired by this site: http://iloveyoumorethanblank.com/

Instead of writing in the hearts, I made a list of things I love him more than and put it inside the card.
The hearts are made out of magazines and two of them are envelopes from cards we received. They have our names on them, and I love the different handwriting.

102  My Excuse For a Cassette Tape Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by malmow on: February 19, 2009 04:38:21 PM
I originally saw this on Dollar Store Crafts, who linked Chezlin, who got the idea from here: http://www.designboom.com/shop/cassettewallet.html apparently. I've made three of them, and this is the least-sucky. I used e6000 on my first two. Besides giving me a headache, it leaves messy splotches of dried glue all over my tape and got into my zipper so it wouldn't zip anymore. I'm also having a hard time getting the zippers to match up. I used hot glue on this one, and even though its still not symmetrical, I'm going to use it for awhile to see how well the glue holds. I eventually want to make one for my teenage sister, but not until I have enough practice to make a nice one.
I used a 9 inch zipper and black felt on the inside. I love this tape, so I hope if the wallet falls apart I can reuse it. It has a bunch of kids songs on it like "This Old Man" and "Do Your Ears Hang Low." Maybe I should coat the outside with something so the words don't rub off.

I don't know how to take non-blurry pictures, apparently. My apologies.

103  Abstract acrylic paints on canvas in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by malmow on: February 19, 2009 04:02:02 PM
This was my first painting ever. I probably painted it about three years ago. I used acrylic paints on canvas.

104  "I kiss better than I cook" painting for kitchen in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by malmow on: February 19, 2009 03:56:41 PM
I painted this with acrylics on canvas. I did it about two years ago for my kitchen.

I'm not completely happy with it, but I like the way it looks on top of my refrigerator.

105  Acrylic painting on canvas of a Hookah in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by malmow on: February 19, 2009 03:53:19 PM
I did this about two years ago with acrylic paints on canvas. Its the only non-abstract thing I've painted and it isn't my favorite. It was for my husband and he loves it so I guess that's all that matters.

He does like to pick on me and ask me what a "hakooh" is though.

106  Knitting loom adult hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by malmow on: February 19, 2009 03:43:41 PM
This is my third project using Knifty Knitter knitting looms. Hats are actually easier to make than scarves! I'm brand new to knitting (and to Craftster) so I didn't think to keep track of what kind of yarn this is. I used an e wrap stitch.

Action shot (Please excuse my grossness, I'm sick and unshowered):
