1  Tiny Wooden Winter House - Lots O Pics in Completed Projects by Confuzzle on: January 13, 2011 01:16:51 PM
OK, since the pics of this have been posted by the receiver in the swap, I thought I would share here, too. This was the third attempt at making a tiny house for the swap. The first two were COMPLETELY different, but this one turned out better (and much less broken) in the long run.

It was made with scrapbooking paper (cardstock grade), wooden bits, fake snow, and acrylics. Not to mention lots of glue. Lots and lots of glue. The chairs are scrapbooking brads and jewelry wire, with a bit of hot glue gun stabilization.

All right! I finally got the batteries for the camera recharged, and took a moment today to take a couple of snaps of the house sinellia sent. It's absolutely wonderful!

Love the snowy little yard and roof! The darling boyfriend was impressed by the use of the pebbles to build the walkway and walls - he and I both have an affinity for stone houses (I especially adore ones with thatched roofs, so the use of the green grassy stuff got me) so that might have had a bit to do with it.

See the glowing window? It looks like there's a nice, toasty fire inside, or like there might be somebody curled up reading a book, or something similar.

Inside, with the little table and potted plant. Aren't they adorable??

Thank you so much, sinellia! It will have a place of honor on my brand new shelf.

I volunteered to angel for you, too. You won't be left out!

OK, as promised, pics of the booty!  Grin

First a picture of the cute little leaves she doodled on the front of the box. It made me smile, and was awesome after a long day.

First thing out of the box was this little wallet. Just the perfect size to carry around in scrub pockets, so it will see some good use. Love the little zipper pocket on the inside, too! I tried to get a picture of the inside, but it just wouldn't turn out right.

Next is this awesome purse. Just the right size to carry my supplies and such back and forth to work, and still have enough room for a thread crochet project in the corner. It's adorable, even if the machine tried to eat it a few times.

There's a little notebook of handmade pampas paper with leaves hidden in it. It smells wonderful (very sensitive schnoz), and with the leaves just barely peeking through and leaving (get it? ha ha) more of an impression than anything else, I thought it would be perfect for a book of secrets.

Last are some wonderfully obnoxious pillowcases! I unfolded them and started cackling. The boyfriend came in from the other room and the first thing he said was "You are NOT putting those on my pillows!" Yeah... Guess where they are now? Wink They have cute little felt leaves on them. I love the way the stitching was done in the centers. Unique!

Thank you, shayneblate! All sorts of good stuffs that will be put to good use!

4  So Proud... I made a book!! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Confuzzle on: September 04, 2010 07:33:36 AM
I decided yesterday that, demmit, it was time to sit down and learn how. So I used the back of a school notebook, a sheet of scrapbook paper, some printer paper, and some linen weaving thread to put this together.  There's a couple of things I could have done better - like find a better glue, or boil down some flour paste, instead of using a glue stick - but it turned out pretty ok.

The cover:

The stitching:

And it even opens!  Grin

I think this will make a good Yule present for my older daughter, with a "matching" purple one for the younger daughter.

A couple of questions, though: Is it staying open because the stitching is too tight? What do you recommend for glue, to keep the inner cover sheet attached? (That's coming completely off already.) And would con-tac paper be a good cover?

I'm broke, so am doing handcrafted gifts this year. That, and it's got more sentimental value. Yeah... yeah...

Here are a few ornaments that have been finished and blocked.

And it ended up being sold, but this is what happens when set loose with a glass nibbed dip pen and india ink, along with a couple of hours' worth of down time.
