1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Sizzix and AOL tin cans on: September 06, 2006 08:02:14 AM
Has anyone tried this?  I have a few AOL tins, tea tins and cookie tins that I am thinking about making into charms.

I was wondering would that work in a sizzix machine?

2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Need help re-vamping a mirror on: May 18, 2004 07:05:05 AM
Hello you crafty geniuses!

I need your assistance.

I just purchased this wood framed mirror for $2.50!!!  And I want to use it as an entryway, check to make sure you have nothing in your teeth before you leave, mirror.  Also it will cover the unsighly fuse box next to the front door.

The problem is, the mirror is 5 inches shorter than the fusebox. 

So I need to decorate it with an extra 5 inches.  Also, I don't want to add any width so only the top and/or the bottom can be extended.

Oh I almost forgot - the mirror is already really heavy so any addition should be relatively lightweight.

So that is where you all come in!  Help me figure out what to do!  I have thought of using my collection of vintage hankerchiefs to create a skirt for the mirror, I have thought of extending the top and botton with some light weight press board and painting the whole thing - but I am having trobule with a theme.

Thanks it advance for your help!

Just curious.

Hi all!

Need your crafty brains - I just traded someone for a bunch of superhero comic books (at least 40).

So I want to make cool things to sell - any ideas?

I already know about marble magnets - what else?

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Can I shorten a zipper? on: February 22, 2004 02:59:29 PM
I purchased a bunch of zippers at a thirt store for $0.25 and now I want to use them.  

Unfortunately, the patterns I am using require smaller zippers.

Has anyone cut down a zipper to be the right size?

If so, can you share with the group how to do that?

6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Scrabble Rack on: January 26, 2004 12:21:58 PM
Hey everyone!

I was quite productive this weekend.  I hung a lot of pictures that have been lying around.

Also, I had a box of scrabble racks doing nothing so I hung them on the wall and now I can display pictures without frames, a bunch of old metal textbook printing plates and pretty much anything that will fit in the rack slot!

I will try to post a pick soon.

Hey everyone -

I need your beautiful craftiness!  I am going to be travelling a lot for the next few weeks and I really want to have something to do at night in the hotel.

So what projects are easy to pack and don't take up a huge amount of space.

I wish I could bring my sewing machine!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do I make a purse pattern? on: December 30, 2003 02:06:58 PM
Hello everyone.  I have been itching to make a purse but I can't find a pattern I like.

So I was wondering how does one make their own pattern?

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing Machine patterns - are they re-usable? on: October 05, 2003 02:55:51 PM
Hey everyone -

I purchased a purse sewing pattern and I intend to make several of the same, but I am worried the tissue paper pattern won't hold up.

How can I protect the pattern to re-use it over and over?  Or do I need to purchased several copies of the pattern?
