21  Sculpey HORNS in Completed Projects by darcangel on: January 22, 2005 12:38:27 AM
yay! i love playing around with this stuff! i needed a detail for a Rocky Horror Picture Show costume, so i came up with this. the little horns are hollow, about 1/4 inch thick, and are black and purple striped. before baking, i poked little holes in the bottom sides so the ribbon could go through. there is also a knot tied on each side of the holes to hold them in place. the ribbon ties at the small of the neck (is that a term?) yall get the idea. i really like the idea of using an elastic band instead of ribbon- i think that might work better.

what do you guys think?

22  three earings and two necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by darcangel on: January 22, 2005 12:27:29 AM
a few recent pieces. please comment and tell me what you think?

three little earrings, made from 24 guage wire, and random vintage glass beads.


and i could not pass up the opportunity to at least *try* making one of those damn "junk necklaces" with a few chains, and a bunch of random cruddy charms and beads? how could i resist!! mine's a bit more...themed, being that it's in all silver. and yes, that key does unlock the lock, which also acts as the clasp for the chains. it's all a little longer than a choker.

amethyst necklace with matching earrings, and a shot of the little clasp, too. la la la.

mm, comment!

23  Re: Chocolate Fest ~ chocolate samples organizer? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by darcangel on: January 21, 2005 03:13:39 PM
oo! i know!!just find a really pretty box or tin that you want to use, maybe cut a piece of wax paper or tissue or something to line the bottom with, then do one of these dealies:

there's a little bit of math involved. you have to measure a little, cut a few pieces of posterboard out, cut slots in them (half the height of the box), and then stick them together to make a grid. but it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect.

if the picture doesn't make sense, just ask me to and i'll explain it Smiley

(man...any excuse to use MS Paint. haha.)

24  unique purses... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by darcangel on: January 07, 2005 11:35:45 PM
before i knew what crafting WAS, i put together these adorable little numbers...

simply put together of cuts of cardboard, ribbon and two types of material made this little beaut:

and this stunning number was comprised only of the brown paper bags at the end of the checkout line in my grocery store! namely MeMe's Market!

...and purchased at this market? a can of Piroette Entertaining Cookies, when cut open,laid on its side, and covered in fabric, makes a really lovely sholder bag. a-like-a-so:

then, using dinner plates as stencils and adding lots of safety pins, i created this soulful little sholder bag.

hope you enjoyed, and please comment!

28  Christmas S'mores in Winter Holidays by darcangel on: December 29, 2004 02:15:49 PM
i saw these adorable little ornaments online and would have just bought one (i think they were only ten dollars) but it was the day before christmas and i really needed a present for my boyfriend's parents.

so i made my own version! it only took about two hours to make both, bake them, and detail them afterwards. this picture was taken before then went in the oven. once they came out, i put a clear gloss finish on only the chocolate bits (they totally look real), added a ribbon loop to the top to hang them from the tree, and wrote their names on the tummies.

tell me what you think - did i do a good job?

29  CD cases - great for mix CDs for friends!! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by darcangel on: December 19, 2004 12:19:03 AM
this one is a great gift idea for friends, especially to present a mix CD. insta-christmas gifts. woot.

all you need to gather and do:
- at least two pieces of light weight cardboard measuring 5" (tall) x 5 and 6/8ths" (wide) - used four, but two is still really really cute.
- pieces of 1" wide ribbon, 5" long each. you'll need one piece for each corner and edge. see picture.
- lots of magazines (PS - teen magazines will have better pictures and text than craft magazines, nerrrrds.)
- collage both sides of each square. magazine clippings work best, i think. don't forget to put the track list of your mix CD somewhere (hey, like i did)!
- for the CD pouch, just cut a piece of cardboard measuring 2 and 1/2" x 5 and 6/8ths" and scotch tape it to the square you want it.
- now figure out how you want all of this to fold up and hot glue the ribbons down the edges of the squares. make sure you kind of fold it up as you go, or else the folds will be too tight to hold the "pages". meaning, you have to leave a little space between the squares on the ribbon.

sorry if any of this is unclear. just message me if you want more in-depth pictures or explanations.

i would really love comments, please let me know what you think?

30  birdie magnet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by darcangel on: December 18, 2004 04:12:20 AM
i'm not sure if this is cute, or just weird.

all you need:
- a handfull of feathers. you can purchase crazy colored ones or very pretty ones from craftstores, but i found mine in my back yard over some time.
- two beads
- light weight cardboard (like cereal box)
- paint (for beak and eyes)
- hot glue gun and glue
- scissors
- one magnet

- cut a 2-3" circle of light cardboard.
- start gluing the feathers all around the circle with the "roots" towards the center of the circle. build up about three layers of feathers all around.
- cut two (isosolese, obtuse) triangles and fold 'em in half.
- paint the beads white, if they're not already and add little black dots for pupils.
- simply glue the triangles in place, and the eyes on top.
- glue a little magnet to the back and voila! unique fridge door decor.

this is my first post, so tell me if i did a good job!
hope you enjoy the design!
