1  clicker! w/tut in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by happy*chickens on: May 29, 2012 09:57:05 PM
sing along-
i trust you animal loving crafters to use the clicker responsebly, there's some really good info tuts in Emily's channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bs_M9Fzc94U

i made (2) from plastic bottle and it's cap

use the curved part of the bottle for the clicking part (not too curved though 'cuz then it won't pop)

cut slits on both sides of the cap, insert the plastic (it's a bit tricky here, use the tip of the knife to guide the plastic sheet, also try making the slit you gonna insert to a bit wide)

 and ... that's about it.
adjust it a bit and stuff, you can apply glue or tape to the side,
make sure to not trim a lot so it wont slip out of the slits, you know what i mean?
also i noticed that the smaller cap clicker pops back better.
don't fall in the trap that bigger is louder.
if you're interested there a short demo video of them 2 on my blog

hope it'll do you good,
       take care of your dog!

2  dustpan from x-ray w/ tutorial! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by happy*chickens on: April 12, 2012 11:57:01 AM
 some stuff in this world are so common and taken for granted.. like mini squeegees, funnels, kitty litter scoopers, umbrellas...and yes-dustpans Tongue
i know they're cheap, but why the funk buy it? it's so elementary.

so here's the dustpan i made from x-ray sheet some old lady got rid of

and here's how you make it:
you can use x-ray's or any plastic sheet that will be sturdy enough but yet crease-able

here i used a smaller sheet,  if you use the big ones cut it to a smaller size mine was about 28cm (11") high and 25cm (10") wide.

fold it making a crease where you want the pan surface to end (phh... you know what i mean right?

next fold it creasing on an angle to make the dustpan side walls, do that on both sides

open the folds and cut according to the angled crease (the wide end) till you get to the middle crease you made on step one.
than cut a straight line from the bottom to the cut you just made.
here just look at the picture

 these would be the flaps that close and form the dustpan shape. fold them so they are parallel to the middle crease, mark the width of the flaps and cut slits on both sides to slid the flaps in. here just look at the picture

slide the flaps in from the front, shape the creases and your done

dang i hope this tutorial is understandable. making a dustpan is elementary but writing a tutorial is definitely a mass in my head!

thanks for looking and don't get confused by the tutorial it is super easy. make a bunch!

4  (unworking) typing machine giveaway(Toronto) in Ontario by happy*chickens on: January 15, 2010 08:32:23 AM
I've found it outside and thought it could be cool for projects, like using parts or something. but i have to move.
it's not working because the electric wire was cut. it's quiet heavy and comes with a suitcase with no handle.
pick up only (Eglinton W subway, or PM me)

just thought maybe someone could use it. I've got a bit more stuff to organize so stay tuned!  Smiley

5  Re: skull jaw in Stenciling: Completed Projects by happy*chickens on: January 05, 2010 08:38:30 AM
thank you so much for your nice comments!  Smiley
it's really easy to make since it's a simple cut and quite big so you can make too!
if you know how to use print proportions just measure your self, adjust & print.
i don't Embarrassed
so i simply measured my self and traced from the monitor on transparent plastic sheet.

here's the image. now cut it!

post photos of you, yes? cuz its really fun! i had like hundreds of photos to choose from, i couldn't stop making faces until my head hurt Cheesy

7  cd case! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by happy*chickens on: January 04, 2010 01:01:52 PM
hope it goes here cuz it's a bag, for cd's.
so, i had a cd-case emergency. needed to pack for a flight, figured out i got no where to put my cd's at!
since it was last minute and my brain was a mess- means extra creative maybe?
before the pictures i feel the urge to say that all materials that been used here are from the garbage.(except the printed fabric inside...)

the top is from inflatable pool mattress

each page has 4 cd sleeves

from each side Grin

the actual sleeve made from the nylon you got on video cassettes cut into sleeve pattern  Tongue

the zipper i took from an old yellow tent

there's also a sheet of plastic betwin the top fabric and the lining for safetiness and book like stiffness.
it's raw and all, i know, but i love it! and it's comfortable!
thank you for looking!
C&C appreciated Grin
