Great job Aditi! I'm glad my project inspired you, and your pieces turned out wonderfully. I especially love the dangly earrings.  Grin

I've actually tried it with regular keyboard keys as well as the laptop keys pictured. Generally, the laptop keys are better, especially for bracelets and other items that you want to lay flat against your skin. But if you want to make dangly earrings or use just a few keys for charms, there's no harm in using regular keys.  Grin

Thanks for the great ideas. Grin  I think I might do a box of brownies and a small felt stuffie doll.

My boyfriend and I just had a sort-of fight and I said some mean things.  Cry  We're "okay" now, but I'd like to give him something that will let him know that I'm really, really sorry. It would have to be fairly quick, as I'll be seeing him in a day or two and I won't have much time to go out to buy supplies. I have all sorts of craft stuff, but I'm stuck for ideas. So craftsters, please help a girl out!  Cheesy

I just used contact paper for this particular one, but freezer paper works great too. Then I simply painted it with acrylic paint mixed with fabric medium. Easy-peasy.  Grin

Aw, thanks everyone!
Great job on the mirror and bracelet, Michelle!.. they look awesome.
Now I have to go find more keyboards to break apart... you run out of "good" letters so fast!  Cheesy

I had an old laptop which I took apart a few days ago. I saved the keys and some other bits, hoping I could make something out of them. And so I made a pair of earrings for a friend and a bracelet by heating up a saftey pin and poking holes in the keys then connecting them with jump rings.





Easy.

So what do you think?

Usually you only use freezer paper on fabric, since heat of the iron melts the plastic coating & makes it stick well. If you want to stencil on cardstock or paper, I'd suggest using a paper of the same or heavier weight to make the stencil.
As for stencils to use, I kind of thought this one would look cool + it's the only "retro"-ish stencil I have at hand.
I'm pretty sure that I got it off of stencilry.




9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / last minute presents = dawn of the dead + ewoks! on: December 23, 2005 12:37:19 PM
So I've been procrastinating over making my boyfriend's present for a bit. [make that until today.] So, I'm giving him a mixtape, this Ewok pillow [we're both Star Wars nerds.], and a Dawn of the Dead shirt.

First, the Ewok pillow. [it's an iron-on transfer.]



and a closeup on the little guy. [who i kind of over-ironed. uhoh.]



The Dawn of the Dead tshirt [stenciled with acrylic paint + fabric medium.]



I got this stencil from stencilry.



And the mixtape isn't quite finished yet. But I'll get it done by tonight.

Do you think he'll like them?  Undecided
