1  What is the name of this type of paper,... I want some! in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by aliceadventure on: May 30, 2010 01:47:32 AM
Ok, I have this photo album at home and it is beautiful  Smiley It's not mine though  Undecided and I love the paper but I don't know what its called. It's light brown, quite thick with a rougher texture than most. Each page has string tied onto it at each corner for a photo to slip in and theres tissue paper between each page. I think it was bought in India.

Any ideas of the paper type would be really good!

2  Wooden bowls? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by aliceadventure on: May 30, 2010 01:36:33 AM
Ok, I have these wooden bowls, that are in my kitchen as there used for putting crisps and snacks in. There looking really worn out and were clearing out our house so its a case of- to save or not to save!

I could paint them or maybe sand them down? They don't have to be for the kitchen they could have a cool use in my craft room. Any ideas?

3  Re: The end of lost gift in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by aliceadventure on: May 22, 2010 03:01:02 AM
Ok so in the end I came up with a bunch of stuff!

I put a black bin liner over a cardboard box and made a white lid with card and paper. In the box I put:

A pop art painting of the characters
Some Dharma beer and food cases- these are the easiest things to transform into Lost themed food, you can search 'dharma food labels' in google and download some then print.
Character quiz cards- I printed a picture of each character (I chose 3 in total) and backed them onto white paper, then wrote on the back some questions about the character.
A paper plane- I made an ordinary paper aeroplane and coloured, painted, burned the paper and wrote random show quotes inside.
A fridge magnet- I altered a fridge magnet with card, some pretty paper, ribbon and paint and put on it a quote from Sawyer.

4  Memo cards made from card- reasons to.... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by aliceadventure on: May 09, 2010 12:16:14 PM
I created 10 cards called 'reasons to run' leading up to a half marathon I was doing, made from cereal box card and sketch paper. They are cards that I can look back on to remind myself of my love for running. I decorated these with paint, pencils, more paper- anything!

I haven't got time to post them all, these are my favourites Wink:

I also did a blog on this and is a set on my flickr.

I made some new note books I call mini books. I'll explain a little.

Ok so number 1, was a book made from card that I cut like the shape of a camera to store notes on photography, I used scraps around me to add a bit of colour.

Book number 2, was a little consentina one I had made using paper and watercolours, with motivational words, I put it on the bedside table,to get my loved on out of bed in the mornings!

Thanks for reading!
