1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Special gift for best friend? on: December 14, 2006 04:57:08 PM
My best friend asked me to make him something for Christmas/just because. The MAKE part was imperative.. I like making stuff anyway, but I've been forbidden to buy the gift. He's kindof emotional and sentimental by guy standards, but he's also veryy not into anything remotely girly. Consumables are out because he really wants it to be something he can keep.

A little about him:
He's twenty.
He likes: the Steelers, Fight Club and Pirates of the Caribbean(and movies in general!), alternative music, his car(an old Mustang.. what year, I have nooo idea), Rachel Leigh Cook, Madden and World of Warcraft, and poker.

I can sew, I can etch glass, I can stencil, I can paint on stuff(although I CAN'T paint in the artistic sense), I can do candles and soap, but that's really about it I think. There's not a specific deadline so I could learn something new if need be, so I'd like to not invest too much money if possible with it being gift season.

You could also theoretically mount the cases to foamboard, as long as you glue them down well enough that they won't tear away, but I guess that applies with wood too.

That's a neat idea though. I may have to try it for a few favorite CDs.

I just pulled one off my wall the wrong way, by just grabbing the hook and yanking at it until it came off(which wasn't easy to do btw.. they stick really well), and it did no damage to the wall. I think it would most likely be fine, although I obviously didn't do an official experiment on the matter.

I don't have an answer to your question, but I just wanted to comment on your icon. Luke Chueh, right? I love his work.

If I were you, I would keep it. It's so cute!

I've used the 3M hooks too for different things, on my walls a few times and once on my ceiling, and I haven't caused any damage to the paint removing them. It's actually pretty easy. Plus I'm sure the landlord of my apartment uses cheap paint, because I can tear it pretty easily while scrubbing the walls, but removing the hooks hasn't lifted the paint.

do you remove them the "proper" way, or do you just pull at them? the instructions make removing them look like this huge process!

I remove them the proper way, but it's honestly really easy. Just take the little tab at the top and pull upwards, trying to keep it pretty straight, and they pop right off.

Kind of odd, but definitely different. If you find amusement in knit uterus', I say go for it!

The headboard looks good. I can't see the seams in the picture to say it needs something else or it doesn't, but I think it would be a nice touch if you added ribbon. And I like the shape!

It looks really good!
If I were you, I'd make sure I told everyone who came in the house that I did it myself.
