351  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: glow-in-the-dark stars on: April 23, 2005 11:12:25 AM
Depending on their size, you could buy a black frame and put them on it with superglue (or something less potent!) Then you would have a super-cute frame that glowed in the dark!
352  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Happy Graduation Frame! (decoupaged) on: April 23, 2005 10:50:59 AM
I am not sure what topic this exactly this would go under, so I guess this is a good place for it!

I recently made this frame for my boyfriend, as he graduates from college in less than a week! I just took a plain black frame from the dollar store and bought a couple peices of pretty scrapbooking paper from the craft store (our school colors are blue and yellow). Then I just decoupaged the paper onto the frame. When it was all dry I added the stickers, the hat and graduation gown are both 3-D and made of cloth, I found them at the craft store too, with the scrapbooking stuff, with the other stickers and such on there.
I am going to take a picture of us together at graduation and give that to him later, so he can put it in the frame.
This is a really easy last minute gift for anyone who needs it. Decoupaging, especially on a wood frame like mine, is really easy and really hard to mess up, and it looks pretty professional when you are done.

353  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Taking Requests on: April 20, 2005 06:04:31 PM
On the free web, how do you print them off to make them into stencils? Like, do which part of the stencil do you cut out in general, the white or black part? I would love to use some of those stencil for like some throw pillows, but I am not sure what to do....
354  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: this costume might cross the line for me... - Tutorial on: April 19, 2005 04:47:47 AM

355  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Easy Knitted Ballet Slippers on: April 18, 2005 04:33:38 PM
Thanks, they were super easy!

Just cast on 30 stitches, then just do garter stitch until your block is about as long from your heel until the ball of your foot. Then you decrease, either staying with garter stitch or doing knit one/ purl one. Then you sew them up, and add ribbon!
356  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Scrabble Tile Pillow! on: April 18, 2005 04:30:10 PM
My roommate is a scrabble god (she is an english major so it is kinda a given) I am definitely going to make one of these for her birthday!
357  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Easy Knitted Ballet Slippers on: April 18, 2005 03:49:23 PM
These are a basic slipper pattern.  But instead of a strap I added ribbon to make them look like ballet slippers!



The picture is horrible because I had to take it myself, but trust me, they are super cute in person. I have even had a couple of my guy friends remark on how cool they are. When my roommate saw these, she liked them so much she asked me to make her a pair too!

I am going to resize them and make a pair for my niece next.

I Love Value Village!! I just went there today with one of my friends. I bought a ton of stuff to rip apart and use to make new clothes. Great Job on the shirt too!!

Those are so cool!! I have been thinking I need to make some, but I am going to make mine from a sweatshirt, and wear them to play broomball, because falling on the ice hurts!!!
