1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Monster buddies 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  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / *Heart and Crossbones Business Card Holder.* Happy Valloween! 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.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Um...it's a record holder, made out of records!Tutorial. 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!=)
