(ok i will start off)

Put together 4 stacks of papers, with 5 sheets of paper each.
1. Fold Stacks in half.
2. Create holes in the stacks, in pairs. (Use a sharp objects, such as a carpet sewing needle. Or the end of a compass, ghetto like i did.)
3. Pull thick string or thin ribbon through the holes.
4. Stack them side by side. The digram shows a preview of how the sides should look.
5. Tie the sides to each other, then trim extra's off. eg. Go vertically, keep each row to tied to itself. Cross over from Middle Strings progressively tied to outer strings.

7  Sweet Seashell Jewelery Set (Gift) & Tin Foil Love in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by La_Exotique on: April 28, 2008 01:18:57 AM
So this is going to be a belated birthday gift for a friend of mine. My fingers are crippled from doing the first descent set of jewelery stuff.
I also had to improvise on the gift box, i searched around my house and came across tin foil, eh why they hell not. Grabbed some clear packing tape, and away i went. Why do i have so much seashells, i mean a giant box full of seashells. lol

The black crap is just my head shine in the jewelery.

(close up shot)

I wondered what else i could do with this tin foil, *hmm*, seashells, tin foil, seashells, tin foil
I was going to put it on top of the gift box, but got too lazy.

8  Cat Scratch Post / Pet Step Helper / Slide (tutorial inside) in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by La_Exotique on: April 14, 2008 08:20:59 PM
Ok this thing can have many titles, in my case it is a cat scratching post for my black cat who has been ripping my furniture apart, despite the fact that i have bought two cat trees. It takes simple and cheap stuff to satisfy my cats :/ Oh snap. The good thing about this, is you can have it placed flat as shown in the pic, or stand it upwards.

This can also be a tiny little slide for any small pets you have, or if you have a lazy or a disabled pet who has difficult reaching their litter box, or the couch, then this is a great piece for them to use to walk on.

Just as a side note, the scratching post i have is just a piece of flat board wood that is wrapped with carpet material, very easy and cheap. Depending on what your cat likes, it can be sisal rope material, or even some cardboard material. If you don't have a piece of wood, double up on some cardboard, until it's sturdy enough, then wrap it up with some fleece material or carpeting.

Anyways, what you will need.
Cardboard box, rectangular shaped preferred (I used priority mail box from USPS, the boxes are free).
Scissors, or Box Cutter

Step 1: Trace your piece of board on top of the box. From corner to corner, create a intersect lines.
Step 2: Measure the thickness of your board, or estimate how deep you would like the fitting placement to be. Mine was about half an inch thick. So measure and draw that amount inward, from the originally traced line of the board.
Using a box cutter, cut along the intersecting lines.
Step 3: Fold each of the pieces upwards on the inward drawn line.
Step 4: Fold Each of the pieces inwards, from the original traced line.

Step 5: On the sides of the box, draw a line on an angle, to create the elevation of the post.
Step 6: Cut out the top part of the drawn angle (across the line, and across the fold). Once you have done both sides, it should look like the picture, with the top part as the flap.
Step 7: Re-trace the board onto another piece of cardboard, cut out that piece.
Step 8: Place the cut out piece in the dip that you created, resulting in Step 4.

Now use that tape as much as you can to attach that cut out piece to the four flaps.
Stuff the inside of the box/post, i used brown wrapping paper and rolled them up tightly and stuffed the inside so when my cat uses it, it's hard, won't collapse and is secure.
Now tape the angled sides.

The front part, you should fold up and tape, like in the picture.

Decorate it any way you would like, i used wrapping paper and clear tape because i'm ghetto lol.

Now you can place the scratch board post in, or whatever you please.

Hope this made sense.

10  Re: Too little for a medical alert bracelet in Discussion and Questions by La_Exotique on: March 02, 2008 02:23:57 PM
I know pins are still very hard to consider, but there are pins that are safe in their making.

Have you ever seen those tiny little angel pins? Usually have a large round backing?
I think they are called "metal butterfly clutch", and look like this

The pointy pin is not exposed, they are very sturdy in their holding and can only be detached with clasping the two winged parts together. (you could attach it to his sleeve cuff, collar, pocket,  i'm assuming the medics would seek  in those areas first).
I'm sure you can find them at your local craft store in the jewelery making ile.

Also there are other ideas to consider such as " Zipper Pull"

They seem very simple to make,

"zipper pulls are pefect for the kids who do not like to wear a medical id sports band or medical id bracelet.
id zipper pulls can easily be attached to a coat zipper, book bag, backpack, cell phone and even a key chain."

I'm assuming that any hole in the clothing whether it's be a shoe lace hole, a zipper hole, or even a button hole, you place the blue string part in and then loop the tage into the string part and pull, so it's all looped and dangling.( does that make sense or am i just a loop lol)
You can even make them look cute, instead of a firetruck like on that one, you could attach fake tiny little peanuts and other mumbo jumbo's.

If i come across any other idea's, i will surely add it to this reply.
