Do the bookmarks all have to be matching or can you make three totally different bookmarks? If so, I'm done  Cheesy If they have to match, not a problem  Roll Eyes

Charring an Altoid Tin?  Huh Sorry if I sound a bit skeptical on this one, but without seeing the article you're talking about, I'm assuming this was just a quicker way to take off the paint before you decorate? If so, I really just leave the paint on and decorate over it. Hope ya get your scanner fixed soon though!

This might be somewhat of a no-brainer, but many State Department of Transportation websites will send you free maps if you request them. Some of them also give out other kinds of travel guides and maps, some with many photos. Check them all out! I've recieved some from Wisconsin, New Mexico, North Carolina, Louisiana, and many more! Just search Yahoo or Google for Department of Transportation sites.

Hey all, this is my first Altoid Tin shrine, and it was fun and easy to make! I'll give a pic of each side and then I'll explain a bit since the pictures aren't that fabulous...

Cover Outside
I started my theme with two things: the white ribbon with the gold edges to tie around the whole thing, and gum wrappers to mask the Altoids logos. I would have used gold or silver spray paint but my last encounter left my Altoids tins stuck shut. I also added another candy wrapper for the gold under the ribbon, and a cutout circle and star from my friend's going away party before he left to go to war. It has sentimental value, mmkay?  Cry
Cover Inside
I added a little message I came up with here, I typed it with a fancy font in MS Paint and then printed it on regular paper. It looked weird so I added more gold and silver gum and candy wrappers. The text reads:
Wake up! You will do great things and the world will love you but only if you try. Now is the time to stop simply dreaming when you could be making your dreams come true. Follow your heart and don't let anyone say you can not succeed.
I know it sounds kind of cheesy, but whatever.  Tongue
Bottom Inside
The deep part inside has some raffia my mom picked up in a free stuff box at a yard sale. I hot glued it in over a small piece of note paper and then added the thumb tack with some pieces over the middle. Under it peeking out are a few pieces from a 'silver dollar' plant.
Bottom Outside(no pics)
The outside buttom cover is just a gum wrapper. I put another gum wrapper over it because I actually glued my ribbon in place.

Let me know what you think! I'm definately gonna make more when I dig out some magazines for decoupage!  Wink

Pirate. Mix. CD.

I FEEL THE JEALOUSY! Totally awesome job, and I love the pink and gold; kinda makes it seem retro 70's? Haha I really don't know but I love it!
277  UNITED STATES / Michigan / Crafty People in Saginaw! on: May 22, 2005 11:33:45 AM
Am I the only crafty person in Saginaw? Please prove me wrong! I'd love to trade with people in the Tri-City area or find a crafting buddy  Huh
278  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: HELP....too much fur..../..too much..fabric samples?? on: May 21, 2005 07:04:14 PM
I have a great idea for you! Ok, it's actually really stupid/silly...

Make a fur covered journal/notebook, but do it in such a way that it looks like an animal! Like a stuffed animal book thing! It would be great, can't you see it now?

You can't picture that? Oh well...
279  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: pirate notecard stationary on: May 21, 2005 03:56:05 PM
I love the cards, they're fabulous, but don't ya think the maps look too new? I don't wanna be mean or rag on ya about it but whenever you want something to look old, tea staining always seems to help. I've been chopping onions today so maybe I'm a bit impaired and can't see it if you did that.

I love pirate themed stuff, and this is great! What did you use for the metal part on the cover? I recently did some tea stained index cards for a puzzle project, and I tore the edges and crumpled the paper. Did you do anything like that or did you leave the pages flat?
