1  Winged Unicorn in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: July 16, 2014 06:36:00 PM
I picked up this cute little winged horse at Michael's and turned it into a unicorn. I forgot to take a pic before I sewed the horn on though! I crocheted the horn and sewed a button and some beads onto the ears. The hair I curled with chopsticks and my flat iron. (Dampen the hair, roll it around the chopstick and then put a towel around that and held it for about 20 seconds) The wings are detailed with sequins sewn on. Hope you like it!

3  Minion Madness Birthday Party! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: July 16, 2014 05:14:22 PM
I made this little minion scene for my sister's birthday. They all have a little L on their chest for her name too. Each one is about 2 inches tall. The mediums are clay and paper, the hair is plastic coated wire that bonds with the clay when it is baked. Each minion took about 6-8 hours and I had a blast the entire time. I was so excited to give these to her and her reaction made all the time and effort more than worth it.

These two are my favorites

Most of the scene together

Some in progress pics

I love the reaction of the one watching the other one eat the cake. The tiny little hats and tiny little noise maker were a blast to make!

The card says happy birthday in Banana Language and all of them signed the card for her

I made all the presents out of a piece of cereal box and then wrapped them in various pretty papers and added ribbons and gift tags

Float away!

Bonus Evil Minion hand mirror!

4  Toilet Paper Tube Minions in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by teapotdnky on: July 15, 2014 04:45:33 PM
Hey there! I am so happy with these things! I saw a tutorial for making toilet paper gift boxes http://lookwhatmomfound.com/2013/01/toilet-paper-roll-gift-box-craft.html I folded one end like in the tutorial and thought to reverse the fold on the other end to see what it looked like. Lots of things came to mind like a rocket or a fox, but I realized the shape was perfect for a minion! The bottoms open to use like gift boxes, but you can also open them to make them stand up. It took forever to make so many, and if I did it again I'd use a computer and printer to make the eyes and mouths. I drew the faces by hand, but it was a lot of fun seeing all the pieces come together.

Rough draft:

This was an easy way to make sure they were all about even

All drying

Once they are dry paint a small rectangle on the front and back for the bib of the overalls and paint another thin blue line all the way around for the strap.

After they dry again start folding them. Fold the middle in for the legs and for the heads fold the top corners in. Glue the head seams closed, but leave the legs unglued so you can fill them with goodies or make them stand up. I used alligator clips to secure the tops while they dried.

For the hair I just cut out a few thin strips of construction paper. When you glue the tops closed just add a few strips of black on the seam and close. Fold the hair down and place the clip over the hair. Don't use too much glue or it will seep out and glue the hair down to the face.

You can see a little pile of eyes on the table, I colored the irises on regular typing paper with a colored pencil and some markers. I used white paint for the eye sparkle. The mouths I drew with a black pen and colored pencil. I cut out silver circles and glued the eye on to the center. I made a random number of eyes and just paired them or left singles if the irises didn't match any others.

Almost done.... I cut out long strips of black construction paper to make the band for the goggles and cut each one to length.

Add a circle with a G in the middle, (or use the recipient's first initial)

Hope you enjoyed these!

5  Viserion, Rhaegal and Drogon in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: October 07, 2013 03:06:55 PM
I made these barrettes so I can geek out at work! A few of my regular customers like Game of Thrones and have noticed these, but most people don't know what to say so they don't say anything. I just get weird looks for wearing dragons in my hair.  Grin

I had everything typed out yesterday and lost my connection! Sooo here it goes again:

Everything all together

A Christmas jazz cd with tons of good songs on it, a really cute little santa box, A cute little wreath that now lives on my dresser door and will stay there until I move, and an adorable little donut candle! I tried taking all my goodies out in the natural light for some pics, but the candle started to melt and it was so hot I only stayed out there for a few minutes before I gave up.

Some cute greeting cards, recipe cards and a note pad. I really love the notepad because I keep stacks of notepads on every work table in my apartment! The recipe cards are great too because I've been cataloging my recipes for a couple years now and I was out of cards and I don't have any like these.  Grin

Isn't this the cutest pillow? It's got a beautiful green crochet back, but I didn't have enough light inside and I couldn't get a good shot outside. I love how the fabric is sewn with rainbow thread. LadybugsandBumblebees worked gray and rainbows into nearly everything!!!

I love this purse! The handles are lovely, the lining is adorable with gray polka dots, the buttons have lots of cool details on them too!

I adore this little box! I put it by my makeup table, I think I'm going to keep my favorite lipsticks in it because my current container is way too small. It'll be right where I can see it all the time! Smiley

I opened this one first and I saw gray stripes and silver beads and said out loud "I don't know what this is but I already love it!" This awesomeness is going to look great with my pooch's gray stocking! Now we match! Smiley

I really love everything, thanks for spoiling me Barbara!!!  Kiss

8  Dragon jar in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: July 16, 2013 03:58:27 PM
I made this little jar as a surprise for a coworker. I'm really happy with it! It was a quick project but totally worth it when he took a pic and immediately sent it to his brother to make him jealous. Smiley

Nolansmomster got all her goodies and I'm so excited! I posted topics for most of the items so you can see more detailed pics if you want.

First off, some thank you cards. This one is my favorite! It says Thanks for being someone I can count on!

I made this wall hanging for the Jim Henson swap. It's about 8 by 11. The characters are made over foil bases so they don't weigh as much. It's still a heavy piece because they're so big.

Best part? They glow in the dark!
