1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vitamin Water Table - Now With Pictures on: November 25, 2004 09:12:51 PM
Anyone familiar with Vitamin Water?


Well. I bought a crate from Costco (much cheaper) and after having drunk it all, I washed and dried the bottles. With at least nineteen bottles clean, I then assembled them in a nice little pentagonal shape. I then found a lovely and conveniently sized piece of round, flat plastic in my garage. So I glued all the bottles to it. And then I had a table. And this is how it came out (the pictures really don't do it too much justice):

Hey, this is my first project post on here. So please don't make me cry.

I made a book purse using an old book called "Human Heredity" which I found at a little bookstore. I saw something like this on http://www.lavoleuse.com/handbags.html selling for $110. I don't have that kind of money to spend on a purse. I also don't have a digital camera, so I scanned it the best I could. Except, the best I could was, apparently, not so great. Scanners, pshh.



The side, inside, and spine were done before the handles and flower.

Right. Please don't mind the quality. And I'm a little bit upset that the book is kind of ratty. It even had a dirty pawprint on the first page.

I'm not sure if anyone wants to know how to make this... It was pretty easy; a cereal box, some hot glue, and some fabric, and voila! You can reply to this post if you'd like to know how to make it, I guess.

And, this project was a first time thing; I plan on making another one, now that I actually know how to do it. Maybe next time I'll sew instead of use cardboard, so they can open and close a bit better... like the ones at http://phone.victoryatsea.org/. Those are pretty.

I planned on putting more decorations on the outside, but decided not to since it had a nifty little pedigree-type design. But a pretty flower was enough.

Ah, how I love genetics.
