1  New piggy bank from cereal box + kind of a tutorial in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by NeedToCraft on: August 16, 2012 11:27:33 AM
First of all, I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.
Secondly, I'm sorry for the long story.

A little sneak-peak:

Here we go:

I just want to say, that I'm 14 years old. I want to grow up to be a lawyer and most importantly buy a Hummer (probably H2). Then yesterday, I thought, what if my dreams of being a lawyer get crushed somehow or something happens so that I don't have enough money to buy a Hummer? So I thought I could start collecting money. In order to do that, I have to have a piggy bank. So I went to the store to get a piggy bank that has no hole under it (to collect the money afterwards, because otherwise I would waste the money on something pointless and would never get the amount of money needed to buy a Hummer), nut they didn't have one. So I thought I could make it myself, the crafty girl I am  Smiley Thus came the idea to modify a cereal box.

Here is the tutorial, or the way I did it:

First I took the cereal box and covered a hole that was in there

Then I made a hole in the top part of the box to put the money in

Then, I covered the whole thing in newspaper

Here's a closer view of how I covered the top part with the hole

Then, since it was money for a Hummer, I wanted to write it on there. So first I cut out the letters

I then discovered that they would be hard to see on the box, so I painted them black (a little stupid since I could've just cut them out of black paper, but I was bored too)

Then I put them on white paper (can you tell I'm bored and doing things harder for me than they have to be? Smiley ) and added 'money for a' (it's in Estonian, though)

And it was finished YAY  Cheesy

C&C Welcome

2  Birthday present and pencil case in Crochet: Completed Projects by NeedToCraft on: August 29, 2011 07:31:00 AM
So my best friend had a birthday and I made her this(it's a phone pouch you dummy...(you're not really dumb)) :

She wanted me to write on it 'Pirgit 15'(her name is Pirgit and she turned 15). But her name didn't fit in there so i had to write only 15:

And here's the back:

And here's the pencil case I made for myself for school:

I really like the bow on this:

I made a little(ok, big) hole in the crocheted piece to make a pocket for the eraser and other small things that would otherwise fall out:

Here's the inside. I didn't make a lining('cause I'm too lazy):

(I closed the case with snaps)

And the back:

Hope you liked it!
C&C Welcome. Always.

3  Crayon melting - First ever in-progress shots (pic chubby-bunny) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by NeedToCraft on: August 23, 2011 06:23:07 AM
First of all I want to say that I (sort-of) copied it from [url]https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=388880.0/[url]. Of course mine isn't half as pretty as NightCheads'

Picture that goes as a thumbnail or if you read this then as a beauty shot(It's not very pretty, I know, but I don't have  a better camera):

I glued the crayons down(with PVA, 'cause I don't have any other):

Closer shots of the order of the crayons:

So that was before...(oh and by-theway I used scrap-crayons) And this is after I heated them with my hairdryer:

And here it is with the frame on:

You see the little stripey thingy right on the bottom of the blues? Well that's because the green crayon started rolling around the paper, because he thought that he was the cool one and could do whatever he wanted... Well I got news for ya, green - NOT COOL!!

In other news - The blue one took his time and melted the slowest. The dark blue ones and the lilac ones were in a hurry and melted the fastest(that's why you see so much blue in one end).

Well... Hope you liked it! Smiley
C&C Welcome. Always.

5  shoebox overpainted (PIC OVERLOAD) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by NeedToCraft on: August 07, 2011 05:56:46 AM
Like the title says it's just shoebox overpainted

Here's the cover:

Closeup of the ART thingy. A=beads with PVA(it started flowing) R=Glass paint T=some sparkling fabric :

I painted one side white just like the cover:

The other side i painted black to create a night sky with stars(very, VERY bad idea). The paint never dried... So i covered it with PVA. It mixed with the paint but when it dried it left a nice effect:

I didn't paint the very to part 'cause i was afraid that i wouldn't be able to close the box correctly:

The inside of THE BOX Grin(I'm funny, right?) :

Let's play a guessing game - 'Guess what's in the container' :

If you guessed elephants... You're wrong.
If you guessed beads... You're right. Wink

Thanks for reading. C&C Welcome Smiley

6  Jewelry holder (kinda recycled) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by NeedToCraft on: July 13, 2011 12:46:25 AM
So... I was watching the jewelry holders here on Craftster and I wanted to make myself another one of those.

Here's the big picture:

I made little knots so the earrings wouldn't fall together so much:

As you saw from the big picture, I have 3 'baskets' there that i made out of regular colored paper.

First is for the non-hanging earrings(or the ones that don't have the hook and instead have just a straight wire):

Second is for the backings(or whatever you call them):

And the third one is for other stuff related to jewelry:

I also made a 'system' for my necklaces. It's basically two holes and and a tie and from the tie hang the necklaces. You can kinda see it:

And the ties on the cardboard box:

It's basically a cardboard box painted over. Hope you like it.

C&C welcome

8  For a friend, cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by NeedToCraft on: April 20, 2011 08:28:18 AM
First, I made a bag, 'cause i owned my friend some money and we agreed, that i make her a bag instead. The bag of course came out hideous. so i cut out a cuff size oval and made it into a cuff:

Detail of the flower thingy:

Hope she likes it instead of a bag(it would be small anyway). Smiley

I made this blanket for my sisters son, so it's small. I'm really proud of it and her son liked it too Grin
I just found out that i can't post pictures yet but i'll post links  Wink
This is the front view:

The back view:

A closer look at the writings on the back(it's in Estonian):
  It says: Sleep well! and Good sleep! (it makes more sense in estonian or if you say Have a good sleep)

And on the front side:

Comments always welcome! (C&C too, but i don't know what it means) Smiley
