42  hanging wedding photoalbum tute (pic heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by achgfd on: January 29, 2010 05:09:26 PM
I found an example of these hanging hand made frames so I had to make some of my wedding. I wasn't sure if anybody cared for a tutorial, so I thought I would just put some pictures together to show how I did it. =S Please let me know what you think. I'm going to make some for my sister in law of her rescue dogs.
Here is the end result:

When planning the wedding I had bought these save the date cards super cheap but never used them. Even though they were $5 but 40 cards I held onto them knowing that one day their purpose would come to me. here is what they looked like before.

then I went to Micheal's and bout some valentines day scrapbooking paper. They had a big pack for only 5 bucks! I picked this sheet to use as my photo corners.

To make the photo corners I didn't really measure, but I would say they can be from an inch and a half thick to half an inch. I just cut a strip to fit one heart in. and then folded them diagonally to form a tiny triangle corner. This way it would hold my pictures without me having to glue them to the cardstock.

After folding and gluing it looked like this. The green polka dot is the other side of the paper that I used. You can see the hole I punched in to pull the ribbon in. I was lucky to find a hole punch that was in the shape of a heart!

After putting in all the corners I laced the ribbon through the holes I punched on both sides so that each tier would hang from the other, I used 2 different ways to string. One was more of a shoe lace kinda way and the other was just a box.

After all that I inserted my pictures and it looks like this:

And for the bottom I tied (with great difficulty!) and glued some leftover ribbon we used for the wedding with our names and date!

43  Wasn't sure where to put these. Legos! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by achgfd on: January 27, 2010 09:03:19 PM
My husbands birthday is tomorrow so I decided to make him a special present. We have a huge bin of Legos in the basement. I spent about 2 weeks sorting through the whole thing pulling out the different colors. Then I took a pixelated picture from some video game characters, measured them off into a grid and began to build!
I'm very happy with how they turned out and he loves them! I found these two tutes which helped a lot too.

This is the potion by itself:

And here's all of them! The water bottle is for height reference.

44  moar papercrafts rawr! Kinda img heavy... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by achgfd on: January 08, 2010 10:42:19 PM
Ok so I made these the other night. All the patterns I printed off on cardstock, cut, folded, and glued together.
First up: I made a pair of Mystery Science Theater 3000 glasses for a friend. I initially got the idea from gizmodo. http://gizmodo.com/5418015/see-the-world-through-the-eyes-of-mst3k but I work with paper so I kind of winged it. Here is the result. Very wearable glasses, but they are too close to your eyes so they look out of focus.

Then I found a pattern to make these cute animal pianos! Got the pattern from here: http://www.twink.net/

Pink Bunny Piano!

Black Cat Piano!

And two together!

Finally... Since its the new year I needed a new calendar. So I made these for my desk. Super cute. It is year of the tiger! The Tiger is from January to April. The Bunny is from May to August, and the Penguin is from September to December. Got the Pattern here: http://paperkraft.blogspot.com/2010/01/milkbun-2010-animal-calendar.html

From the Front/Above




And then from behind!

I appreciate you guys taking a look, let me know what you think. Or if anything you want to see made, I like taking requests. ^_^

45  Two new papercraft models. Skelekitty and Growlith! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by achgfd on: January 08, 2010 04:16:03 AM
I had made these before the holidays but wasn't a member here yet. So here they are! They are made of paper. Yes Paper. I print off the patterns, then fold and glue. So I didn't actually design them, I just put the puzzle together. The skelekitty I made for my sister in laws birthday. Its build is just like her cat Mouseh. I got the pattern from here:

And then I made a growlith. He was kind of hard because there wasn't much direction with the pattern so I really had to piece it together. Here's the link to it: http://www.papercraftmuseum.com/growlithe/

for anyone wanting to do these you mountain fold on - - - - - lines and Valley fold on - . - . - . - . - lines. Seems to be the Universal pattern. Then you just glue the tabs and apply! And a hint to wash your hands after working with glue for awhile, or else you get smudges.

46  Christmas decorations! in Winter Holidays by achgfd on: January 08, 2010 04:01:04 AM
The season is over, but I still have my toys! I made this snowman out of a kit made by the Lego company. It was a limited release in NYC Toys R Us. There was also a christmas tree, I'll try to remember who I gave it too. They were like... $4 per pack. totally worth it.

Also on the top of his head is a hook to make him into an ornament.

To decorate our door with these snowmen I drew and cut out of cardstock, then tapped to the door.

Hanging our snowflakes by the fire

(snowflakes I actually got at target. I just really liked them.)

I don't know if this is appropriate stuff for here since most projects are all hand made.

47  Hi I'm new. Posting my first projects. =^_^= VERY img heavy in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by achgfd on: January 02, 2010 05:56:50 PM
Hello everyone. I'm kinda new to this site. I've browsed the forums for a while but this is my first time posting. I really like crafting, doing pretty much anything. I'm mostly into Papercrafting. The patterns for my creations I got online on various sites. If I can remember them I'll put them up, but none of these I made the pattern myself. =P

All of these are made of paper. I just folded them and glued at certain points after printing off the skins. Here are some of the sites I used:

O I didn't link those sites! I think I found them on one of my misc. papercraft hunts.

Here's the deviant art site for the plumbob. They even have a red one for when you are feeling very unhappy.

As for the Tardis, Casshan, Master Shake, and Joker.

I didn't like how they had the bits folded into the slits. They didn't stick right and I ended up gluing them anyway. So instead I used the flaps to just fold and glue on the inside. They have lots of stuff there.

Some kitties I got on a Japanese site!

Cashan! An anime character


A Black Mage and some Flans from Final Fantasy 1, and Final Fantasy IX

Milk cartons from Blur's music video "Coffee and TV"

A Chocobo from Final Fantasy VII

Chinese food with noodles! Used a paperclip for the handle.

Cieling cat

A rat from WOW

A dragon

A hamster, was in Japanese.

A Horadric cube from Diablo, a Plumbob from The Sims, and a Borg Cube from Star Trek!

Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force!

Mojojojo From Power Puff Girls and the Tick!

Navi from the Zelda Games!

Piano cat! Pattern by Tubbypaws, but it actually works. You turn the crank and its arms go up and down like its playing. Very neat.

Preztail from Viva Pinata games!

R2-D2 from Star wars!

Slowpoke. One of the first 150 pokemons!

A Thwomp from the Mario games! My favs <3

Spongebob and Patrick.

Doctor Who's time travelling machine- the Tardis!

The Joker! From the Dark Knight

Thor's Hammer!

An Undercity Mailbox from world of warcraft

A treasure chest from Final Fantasy IX, Snake in a box, and a treasure chest from world of warcraft!

A toaster from Junior Seniors Music video "Move your feet"

Some of my papercraft collection
