Thank you so much everyone! I am glad you like my little felt friend!
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Blue Beard Felt Pin on: November 20, 2008 07:57:05 PM

I just made this little pin out of felt that I sewed and glued together. It's just over two inches tall


In between making some more Blue Beard pins I made this guy. When I was finished I thought he looked a bit like a Musketeer.

That tissue box is awesome! I will have to try to make one like that someday.

 And great job on the ds case! It still amazes me that so many people liked my craft and have made one for themselves! It makes me really happy!

Someone pointed out to me that these quick paintings I have been doing on card scraps are pretty much ATC's (although the size is off on a few I'm sure).

So anyways, I thought I would share what I have done in this series so far. Thanks for looking!

Wow, this is so inspiring for me! I want to start doing some more crafts and I think I might have to attempt this with a magnetic closure somehow. That would be perfect! Maybe hidden under the felt? Any ideas?

I immediately thought of using magnets when I read through the pattern, too. Will a magnet do funny things to the DS? How much like a computer are they? (This is obviously going to be a gift lol.)

**Edit** I just discovered that Nintendo makes a "magnet stand" for the DS, which you can use to attach the DS to your fridge, for use with a game that has a bunch of recipes. So I'm going to guess that using a magnet won't be an issue ....

It sounds like a great idea to try out! When I get a chance I'm going to give it a shot and do some design changes that I've been thinking about!

You could just use some kind of tough white glue, like wood glue or something.

I made this tutorial ages ago, and the glues I use most now for my book projects are 3M super 88 spray gule, white PVA wood glue, and yamato sticking paste
28  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES / $3 Portable Light Table on: May 03, 2008 08:30:07 PM

I have a big light table my dad built for me that I use pretty often to transfer sketches onto other paper and stuff. Since I am going to be away from home all summer, I needed to think of something that I could use instead to work with. This is what I came up with! I'm posting the probably not so stellar instructions on how I did it in case anyone wants to attempt to make one of their own.

(Also I have no idea if this actually qualifies as a light fixture or not, but I figured it was worth post it up and giving it a shot)

Materials used:

Wood shadow box
2 LED night light things like these ones http://www.goodmart.com/products/830447.htm
some tin foil
large bulldog clip
piece of grooved plastic
small screwdriver

I got the box and LED lights at the dollar store for a buck each, everything else was stuff I had laying around, and the plastic was salvaged from the trash. Bringing the cost of this project to a grand total of $3

The Shadow box came with a piece of glass that slid into it, but I didn't want that so just took it out. I cut a piece of tin foil to fit inside the box and glued it into place. The LED things came with a shield over them so you sort of press down on the top of it for the lights to come on and it has a sticky plate on he back that the whole thing clicks into so you can open it to change the batteries. I took the shields off using a screw driver so the light would be less focused and then used the sticky plate thing on the back to affix it to the bottom of the tin foil covered inside of the box.

I measured the box and then scored the plastic with a knife to size. Then I snapped the plastic and sent some shards flying, but pretty much got a nice rectangle sized piece. Then I sanded the edges around so it wouldn't be sharp and annoying. Then I just turned on the LEDs by pressing the button in the middle of the three lights, placed the piece of plastic onto of the box, and held it in place with a big bulldog clip.

And there you go! It actually works really well and shines through stuff like thick watercolour paper. It's a bit hard to take a picture of it in action though.

Thanks for looking!
