12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flower Hair Clips on: December 21, 2011 03:10:36 PM
I bought the purple orchids at Claire's for an absurd amount of money knowing I could make it myself, but needed them that night.  So, the days following I did just that.  Basically, I completely take the silk flowers apart and hot glue each layer back together.  Then I glue the leaves on the other side of the clip since the glue doesn't adhere to the metal and I'm too impatient to wait for a glue that would  Wink  Anyway, super easy and fun to make.  Also, the yellow daisies are painted with yellow glitter fabric paint just because I love sparkles!
13  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Thanksgiving Place Card Holders on: December 21, 2011 02:59:47 PM
These are pumpkin place card holders that I made for Thanksgiving dinner.  They are made of white clay then painted with a yellow tinted gesso.  Next I dry brushed them and painted the cracks with gold acrylic.  Lastly, I curled some gold wire around a pencil to make the loops and pushed them in the pumpkins.  It might not come across in the photos, but they ended up having a pearl-like antique look.  I am very pleased with how they turned out and I got tons of compliments.  There were nine of us at dinner and I only had time to make that many, but I plan on making an even dozen sometime in the future.

These are adorable.  I was going to do something similar for a pair of earrings, but without the cute little faces.  I love how the storm cloud is glittery.

I've saved all of my stubs since the summer of 1997 and here I've been just gluing them into a journal.  Boring!  This is a much better idea.  Thanks for sharing!
17  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Wonderland trinket book box on: July 15, 2010 07:09:00 PM
I'm in the middle of trying this out but I used a cereal box as the cardboard and it doesn't seem to be thick enough to make a distinct shape under the paper towel. What sort of cardboard did you use for this? It doesn't say in his blog either, just that he used the back cover of a sketch pad... I ended up covering the design with puffy paint to make sure it will be high enough but... the edges are not crisp like a cut piece of cardboard. And it was a pain in the butt Cheesy!

Cardboard from the back of a sketch pad would be like the back of most notebooks, but it looks like the OP used corrugated cardboard from the tut on Urban Threads.  I just threw away a bunch of scrap mat board that would have been perfect for this, so obviously, I'm kicking myself right now.  Sad

Love the box, BTW!

What a fabulous idea!  I love the whole concept.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to know that someone having a bad day found one of your books and that it cheered them up.  Smiley
19  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Denim patch pockets! on: July 10, 2010 02:54:39 PM
Several years ago I covered an old cork board with the leg of an old pair of jeans and glued one of the pockets on it to hold thumb tacks.  You could do the same thing to a cork board, even without covering it with denim.  You could also glue a pocket on a whiteboard and keep markers in it.  Another idea is to get a piece of plywood and attach the pockets in rows and columns and use it as a wall hanging to store stuff.  Maybe craft supplies.
