Any ideas on what to do with old puzzles? There are always a million of those at the thrift store, whereas the games (scrabble esp, it seems) are in hot demand. 

Puzzle pieces make great jewelry components...you could varnish them (or paint them with Mod Podge or white glue to seal them) drill a small hole, add an earwire for an earring or link together with jumprings to make a bracelet.

There are some great posts on making purses and such with cool found objects

You could replace the Cap'n Crunch box with the Monopoly box...might be cute.

Nice job, StevenJames. How do you have time to make all of these great things?

I did the right click trick, too, to see the pics...I love the duct tape purse-let idea!!! Is the closure a little tab that slips under a flap? It's really cute.

Really great work....making dolls is sooooo fun.

I made a cake topper for a friend that had two cloth dolls on it for their wedding cake. The grooms head was made of an old typewriter ball. (he is a writer) The bride's head was a huge glass gem...(she loved jewelry). The bodies were made of fun fabric like the one's that Dorion made.

The were fixed to a round piece of wood, maybe 6"in diameter with a hole drilled in it to hold a dowel to hold the dolls upright. I painted the wood in bright colors to match their tropical theme.

They just celebrated their 10th anniversary, dusted off the topper put it on their cake!
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:pearls of wisdom: what do you know now... on: March 18, 2004 07:51:29 PM
Let me add that I agree that you must have a professional attitude when it comes to business. You are only as good as your reputation. Word of mouth is the best advertising that there is.

Also, keep really thorough records for your business. You will need them for tax purposes and for financing, (if you want a loan). Become an educated business person by taking classes at your local SBA (Small Business Administration) or community college. Once you understand how businesses are run, you are empowered to speak with confidence about your own venture.

Remember that no one can read your mind. Project a confident attitude, no one will know about your insecurities. A great product and a good attitude will help you to go far.

Good Luck!

If you want to make an impression in the clay to use as a mold or for some other similar purpose, and don't want the rubber stamps to stick to the clay, brush a very fine layer of baby powder or cornstarch over the place on the Fimo that is going to be stamped. Make it so fine that it cannot be seen on the surface, just felt.  It will act as a release, and make your image come out really defined. Just press the stamp in with even pressure, then bake in the oven. If you ink the stamp, the ink may not survive the baking process, but you could paint it afterwards. Though shrinky dinks with ink on them survive heat, so rubber stamp ink might too.
