1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Emi Jay Hair Tie Elastic?! Help! on: November 03, 2014 05:19:18 PM

I am trying to figure out what type of elastic is used to make the new "Skinny" hair ties - and find a place to buy it in large quantities.

I know they use Fold Over Elastic for their standard hair ties -

But what about their 1/4" hair ties and headbands?



I want to use it to make bracelets...

Oy! Too much Googling!  Huh I just can't figure it out! I'm hoping someone here would know?
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How Do I Cut This? on: October 08, 2013 07:56:44 PM
So I'm sure there is a super easy solution to my problem and I'm just not getting it. But - if anyone has any idea on how to do this I will be so grateful!

I'm working on a project where I'll be screen printing HUGE sheets of plastic sticker backing film and/or paper sticker backing (I'm making stickers). I need to cut the sheets down to 4 inch by 4 inch squares - and they need to be "professional looking". My problem is I seem to be cursed with crooked cutting! So I think hand cutting with scissors is out. I have a little paper cutter (the kind where you slide the blade across the paper) but somehow that always comes out kinda curvy too.

Does anyone know of a better way to do this?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Laser Cutters! on: November 16, 2011 08:55:21 PM
Hi guys!

I am looking for a laser cutting / engraving service for metals but I haven't been able to find one that cuts AND engraves metal. Googling turns up mostly industrial type companies and I'm looking for something on a smaller scale.

Does anyone know of one? I feel like there should be a list of laser cutters on here somewhere - but I checked and couldn't find one.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Bangle Sizes on: April 26, 2011 05:54:12 PM

I'm wanting to make some bangles but I can't figure out what diameter they should be. I looked online but haven't found anything that helps - is there a "standard" set of bangle sizes? I want to make 2 or 3 different sizes so different people can pick out a size and have it fit them.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Getting Started and Unstuck on: April 14, 2011 01:53:20 AM
I was hoping some of you might share your stories about how you got started with your businesses.

I'm finding myself so stuck! I'm a pretty crafty person- and have tried so many different things (beading, sewing, knitting, jewelry, etc.) and I know that the quality of my work is good. I love looking at other people's Etsys and I can't help but think "if they can do it why can't I!?" But for some reason I just can't get started! I've wanted to have my own Etsy for years and years and I get so many ideas for Etsy shops- but once I start making things to put in it I stop - decide it was a bad idea and then I'm thinking up a new idea! Well this has gone on for so long that I've realized the problem might not be with the ideas - to make it worse it started out as something fun to do but now its just stressful. I know! Weird right?

It would be really helpful if anyone else has had a similar experience - and could share how they got started. Thanks!
