101  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A WHOLE LOTTA JUNK... [there's a list] HELP! on: December 09, 2006 08:27:39 PM
for the fuzzball things you could make one hair tie. they sell hair ties with a bobble on each end and the tie itself is clasped in the middle so the whole thing is in an 8 shape. does that make sense? and you sorta wrap it around your ponytail and then stick one bobble thru the loop of the other side....ok. i should take a picture of what im talking about...ok hope this helps *im not allowed to post pics yet  Embarrassed *. one isnt clasped but its all the same. so just some stretchy string strung thru both. i love these things. and your fuzzballs are good colors together.

you could always do an american beauty type thing and instead of rose petals it would be cash.
standing sideways have a fan of cash in both hands and hold them in front of areas that wanna be covered. perhaps wear arm length silky gloves. *i admit...i was watching girls next door the other day and they were doing their playboy pictorals and they just looked awesome and now i want some long gloves  Tongue *
hmmm. cheap cheap tape. i dont know what brand exactly but there is some tape that my mom bought to wrap gifts and it barely stays on there. you could use it to temporarily tape the cash together. but any sort of tape im sure would work. double sided to tape to your body. but tape rolled to make it 'double sided' so to speak may be easier to peel off. money doesnt rip the same as paper when peeling tape off. but test one piece first.
id have so much fun with this. hope you do too!

Has anyone tried baking in an oven? I think it can be used for the record bowl as well. I'm not too sure though, I haven't got an oven.  I tried burning it, and it got all deformed.

I have tried it. It doesnt melt into the bowl shape like the records do if it still has the shiny backing stuf on it. So you have to peel all that off so you are left with a clear cd. It takes forever and doesnt exactly peel sorta flakes. You can scratch it with scissors or something and use tape to get some off but other than that i havent found an easier method. But once its clear it works pretty well and it forms little bubbles inside the plastic but doesnt distort the shape so its really pretty and starry looking. Ive glued a penny to the bottom or some paper and just put earring or little things in it. One of em I didnt make into a complete bowl but sorta a shallow dish and was gonna give it as an ash tray after glueing a bunch of pennies around the bottom to make it steady but it didnt work the way i planned. Well....sorry if this was a repeat but 36 pages is a lot to sift through haha.

i just read all 11 pages of this thread. it was exciting! haha. ive made collages with my mags. I made color themed ones (8 i think) then i made a hot girls, hot guys, sex themed, and one with mostly words that are negative cuz i was sooo angry at something and it made me feel alot better afterwards. now i keep picture clipping from mags in an acordian file and the articles and whatnot in just a folder. i havent gone thoroughly through all my mags but i have quite a few. i mostly get pictures of women outta them because i like to draw and they make good references for poses and lighting and whatnot.
im digging the envelope idea though! i think after im done reading on this site time going to make a bunch and send xmas cards or random letters to people.
and i definitely want to try that decoupaged shoe idea. there werent many replies to that but it would be super cool.
105  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / glass etching w/tape on: December 09, 2006 03:10:53 PM
this is my first post. ive been just watching for a long time and read about the glass etching so i went out and bought some stuff to do it. i saw some posts talking about using tape but in the little booklet that came with my stuff it said dont use tape as a stencil. does that mean i cant tape on my glass and cut out an area or design to etch. is masking tape not good for this? or are they just trying to get me to spend more money on sticky stencils and the likes?  Huh thanks
