2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: dead stock pants dilemma on: March 13, 2005 07:41:47 PM
Can I ask a question?
What exactly are dead stock pants?
I googled it and only got one return, a vintage clothing website.  I still don't understand what it means.

In issue #10 of ReadyMade, they use a soda can as a cover for a light switch cover.  Sort of fold the flattened out can over the existing cover and screw back in place.  I can take pictures of the magazine if it doesn't make sense.
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / old tin candy molds on: May 04, 2004 02:04:02 AM
i got a small bag of old tin candy molds (sort of like the ones here) at a garage sale.  I'm not really sure what to do with them now.
Any thoughts?
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / I screwed up a picture frame! on: April 13, 2004 03:25:28 AM
So I was trying to revamp a plain black picture frame to put this picture in.  I tried making some sort of frame out of a record, that didn't work.  I tried hot gluing red vinyl to the frame, that really didn't work and now my frame is covered with hot glue bits.  Is there anyway to get those off?  Or can anyone think of a way to decorate the frame so those glue-y bits are covered and the frame still goes with the theme of the photo?

Use them to get out all that pent-up aggression...Office Space style.

I like making postcard sets from random photos (from catalogs, old magazines, old books, etc.).
Get a pack of blank 4"x6" index cards, glue the random pictures (or pieces of pictures) on one side, and draw the lines, place for the stamp and all that on the other side (use markers, paint, or maybe fingernail polish).  You can add a random "Wish You Were Here" postcardy-type message to the front or back or maybe some ad for a made-up vacation spot (Visit beautiful Abercrombie Island!)
Wrap up sets of 10 or 20 of these with a nice ribbon and you have a very cool gift.  Or just send them out to all your friends one by one!  Everyone loves getting postcards for no reason.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re:Band T-shirts on: March 29, 2004 10:42:29 AM
A good place to find cheap plain t-shirts (I've found that the ones at craft stores are made weird, don't fit me well) is Wal-Mart.  Check the little boys section.  They have a ton of different colored plain t-shirts for $3.50 and if you need a regular adult size, they have those in the men's section for like $4-$5.  They should be near the underwear and socks and all that stuff.  But they are never consistently there, so it's a hit or miss kinda thing.  Another good idea is a sports/shoe store.  Maybe a bit more expensive but in addition to regular t-shirts they have plain baseball jersey type shirts--very cute with a stencil on them.

Yeah, you can tell I've done a lot of searching for shirts  Cheesy

My question is where do you get sushi grass in the first place?
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Umbrella as light shade on: February 29, 2004 10:52:55 AM
You mean for one of the fixtures that is close to the ceiling?

Yeah, i'm talking about the 2-lightbulb ceiling fixtures that are pretty standard for bedrooms (when you don't have a ceiling fan or anything).  I'm basically hanging the parasol upside-down from that fixture.

I really wish my camera wasn't broken, so I could post pictures!
