21  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re:Wedding Invitations on: February 18, 2004 12:28:23 PM
There are TONS of places that sell vellum, I'm sure you can find it cheaper than here - however, they do have some good inspiration  - this is the striped vellum -


This is too cool, if it works - vellum photo paper! http://www.paperdirect.com/productDetail.asp?useStoredQuery=1&subCatID=&superprodid=2550

And, I have done these, and I think they are cool - they are cachets - http://www.paperdirect.com/productDetail.asp?useStoredQuery=1&subCatID=&superprodid=8435

But this also looked very cool - vellum sleeves around cardstock - http://www.paperdirect.com/productDetail.asp?useStoredQuery=1&subCatID=&superprodid=4050

Like I said, I'm sure you can find it much cheaper than here - FWIW, I have used them before and they were good to deal with.

Good luck!

meli-melo - I'm a big vellum fan - you can get vellum w/a very faint stripe in it to go along w/your art deco theme - print a slightly faded (maybe black&white) pic of you and your groom on white card stock, and print the invitation info on the front - simple is best - and use a 2 hole punch or something similar and attach the vellum to the cardstock w/satin ribbon, something w/a tassle, or in the colors of your wedding.

Be sure to show us what you wind up with - and congratulations!

This was a thread about cereal or other boxes, but I bet it would work for those as well -


or this idea from MissRoo -

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re:krylon paint for plastic on: February 16, 2004 08:50:13 PM
I heard about it on Tech TV, for painting computer cases, etc. Is it called Fusion? That's what this stuff is called, and it's supposed to work good, according to them. If it works on a computer case, it should work on a TV!

Here's the bit from TTV -

Question No. 6: Painted CD-ROM tray
Heather from Ferndale, Michigan, wants to know about painting the tray inside her CD-ROM drive. Specifically, is that a bad idea? Patrick and Leo believe it can be done, but it must be done very carefully. .....

....blah blah blah ...

For the actual painting, she needs to be careful about the kind of paint she uses. Many paints will melt the plastic or create a permanent sticky mess. Fortunately, Krylon makes a paint called Fusion that's made specifically for painting on plastic. If she uses Fusion and properly primes the plastic, her tray painting dreams can be realized.

I think it's lovely the way it is - put a hanger on the back and hang it on the wall!

OK, less boring ideas - put a round mirror in the middle and hang it on the wall.

Or get one of those big 3 wick candles and use it as a centerpiece.
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re:Where to find big wooden boxes? (storage ottoman) on: February 16, 2004 05:52:27 PM
I have a bunch of old peach or pear crates, but not sure if they would be sturdy enough - do you have an Ikea near you? I know they always have cool boxes for stuff like this, and cheap. Also, places like Michaels and Rag shop always have sales on unfinished wooden crates for like $15 each - if you fastened two of them together, it would make a nice sized ottoman. Oh wait, Michaels has them on sale this week for $5.99 -


The wine crates would be cool - stain them, and then put your cushion on top!

Are you going to be carrying the laptop in another case, or is this the only case it's going to be in? That makes a difference in terms of padding. If it's the only case for it, I say get some foam padding, preferably the stiffer kind (it looks almost like styrofoam, but is still flexible) in order to protect it. You could cover it both inside and out, and then sew it together to make a sleeve. I know someone who knit a cool iBook sleeve w/handles - it was felted, and so cute, but it was going to be traveling in another case, so padding was not an issue.

For the bride - pretty bag to collect cards in - fabric or even a pretty bag or decorated small basket.

For favors/seating cards - small decorated frames, maybe ones that could also be magnets. Other magnets, like the marble magnets, maybe personalized, w/pics of bride and groom (or baby pics of bride and groom!)
