2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / clicker! w/tut 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!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / dustpan from x-ray w/ tutorial! 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!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / red(cycled) square back pack on: April 05, 2012 07:03:54 PM
well, found a red vinyl/whatever plastic coated cotton skirt. old-school 80's style you know? the kind of rectangle with buttons...
 damn i should have take a picture.. Cry
(learning from past mistakes right now)
so i used the fabric.

it's a square bag! Cheesy

for the back side of the shoulder straps i made a little drop stamp
(just cut out a shape from hot glue gun stick, glued to a tree branch)

action shot
that's all. this bag is now rocking it on my best friend Cheesy

thank for lookin'! C&C please Grin
9  CANADA / Ontario / (unworking) typing machine giveaway(Toronto) 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
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What do I do with this mirror frame??? on: January 05, 2010 08:54:47 PM
definitely solid color to match and i think of a coffee table (with the frame as frame) or maybe something that has to do with headboards? like to frame a soft pretty cushion and hang above the bad? (is it too lame?)
or hang it on the ceiling???!!! like a light frame above dining or lounge area?
