1  Monster buddies in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by buttonarcade on: April 19, 2005 02:12:34 PM
A few months ago, my bf discovered a box containing a ton of Sculpey monsters I made about 6 years ago.  He totally freaked out, and made me make him a "Black monster that wished he coudn't hear".  Our toddler had just discovered how to scream, and she had already become a pro at it. =)
So, this guy was born:

I made a little screaming monster to complete the scene:

Then I felt bad for portraying our daughter in such a way, so I made a kitten monster for her, too:

They are only 1"-1.5" tall, and they keep our computer company.

2  Re: safety pin bracelet, necklace, pop tab earings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by buttonarcade on: February 17, 2005 06:12:17 PM
whoa. those are AMAZING! i was expecting plain pop tabs on ear wires and safety pins hooked together. but these are awesome. i'm trying to figure out the bracelet, though. did you just put beads on the pins then thread them like a bead? like this? (forgive my ms paint drawing.)

all my pop tabs are rounder. yours look more like red bull tabs. and your beads are you shiney =)

  I LOVE your picture!  It isn't the drawing that tickles me so, it's the little question mark =)

3  *Heart and Crossbones Business Card Holder.* Happy Valloween! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by buttonarcade on: February 12, 2005 02:42:49 PM
I got this really cool white pleather material from Jo-ann's for
like 2 bucks, and decided to make my bf a business card holder
for Valentine's Day.   

  A little glue and a few stitches later:

  It's more like a happy Valloween!

  We're not really mushy people, but this ended up with a little
mush because the little heart represents our daughter.  *Aawww!* =)
The stitches are for his *emotional* wounds we healed.

  All he has to do to remove a card, is pinch the sides together
at the top.

4  Um...it's a record holder, made out of records!Tutorial. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by buttonarcade on: February 11, 2005 03:30:01 PM
  I was getting really tired of constanly opening and closing the box I keep my 7"s in, so I made this!  At first I thought it was kind of mean, but then remembered records don't have feelings!

  I set my oven to *warm*.  Records become soft at very low temperatures, so you don't need to set your oven high.  I made a little stand to set the record on to help shape it a bit.  I did this by simply making a *tent* out of cooling racks, and securing them with twisty ties.  I then set it on a cookie sheet to keep it from slipping.

  Next, I just kept placing the record in the oven, taking it out and shaping it, until I got it how I wanted it.

  For the legs, I simply softened a 7" in the oven, then cut it down the middle.  I just used hot glue to attach them to the holder (there is probably a much better glue for this!).  I put them on sideways!  There should be one on the left, and one on the right, not back and front!  I got too excited.

  Sorry for the picture quality (or lack there of).  My digital camera broke, so I had to use a disposable.  Technology rules! I'm sure you smart humans can come up with better designs than this, and I can't wait to see them!=)
