2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Challenge #1 on: May 24, 2010 08:49:43 PM
how about all those old concert/character/funny tee-shirts that are either a) too small b) too hole-y (and i don't mean sacred!!  Grin  ) or (perhaps) c) too nervy for your more-mature-current-self?

that may apply to more men than women but i know, as for myself, i have WAY too many that i cannot bear to throw away or even use as rags!!

what to do with those would be a challenging challenge, i think

i don't know as far as something like cricut being able to do that.

you'd have to have an interface with your computer, i'd think - assuming that is how you would design the flower.

does it have to be paper? or can it be something else that is flat and works like paper?

i know this is an old thread - i stumbled upon it looking for something specific...

but this IS a GREAT sympathy card/gift given the situation it was made for!

what a wonderful, healing sentiment!
in some circumstances, such a thing could mean the difference between going through grief in healthy manner as opposed to dis-functionally/unhealthily/chronically.

anger is part of the process but it's hard to be angry sometimes at the departed or at GOD...but cancer is a good target of those feelings!

i just saw the new Alice in Wonderland movie, with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter (he was stupendously superb as usual!) and so i really like the inchies on the second row!

two of my nieces are expecting their first babies - one in June and the other in July, i think - one's a boy and the other, a girl.

so i made a pop up card for each one, gender appropriate, with the same thing on the front of both.

(this is my first post so these are links to pictures of the cards)

front of cards

(that one's a bit blurry!)

i used scrapbook paper for the grass on the front and the cloud is a semi-transparent vellum type sticker. the house is a section of an old windmill paper model that i enlarged, copied, and enhanced with colored pencils.

i used three different Jolee's sticker packages for each: the stork and baby stuff on the front, the baby stroller and other paraphernalia inside, and the mobile that is in the crib.

girl card

on the inside, i used double-sided scrapbook paper for the walls, using one side for wall paper on the bottom half of the wall, and the other side to look like paint above the chair-rail. i used fancy scissors of various patterns to cut the strips of card stock to use as the chair-rail, window trim, and valance. the window has a clear plastic (backing from the Jolee stickers) over a tree sticker that i laid down before gluing the wallpaper paper in place - i planned for the window space and cut out the square and used it to place the tree. the little curtain and skirt around the cribs are just some scrap fabric trim i had.

boy card, left side

i cut out the dressers from the same card stock and used "button" stickers for the drawer knobs. i didn't know what to do with the little jumper that was included in the sticker package, so i made a little clothes hanger from beading wire and used another button sticker as a sort of hanging knob and hung the little clothing sticker beside the crib.

the crib is just a simple box pop up that i cut to look like a crib. inside the crib, i made another little box to glue the mobile sticker to, so that it would be suspended when the card is opened, since the little animals are able to swing freely on little strings, just like a real mobile.

the mobile is a bit over-sized in comparison to everything else, but i liked the idea too much to give it up, once i got going on the design.  

in the end, the cards were a bit thick, more than usual, although they did fold like they were supposed to. i made box-ish envelopes for them, using some of the wallpaper paper on the outside of the envelopes as an accent. to close the cards, i made two card stock circles that i fastened to the envelope and flap with little brads, tying a bit of string behind the bottom disk, to wrap around both like a legal envelope. i forgot to take pictures of the envelopes.  Sad
