1  Decorated box for 6 month anniversary in Completed Projects by look_closer on: September 05, 2006 01:58:56 PM
I made this box for my 6th month anniversary with my boyfriend, which is tommorrow.  It's got some of his favorite things on it:

This is the top.  The palm tree is supposed to be a replica of this photo I took that he really likes.

Here's a side view w/a guiness cap (his favorite beer)

The inside
a picture of us, a heart, and a bazooka cartoon

closeup of cartoon (its in hebrew cause he's studying that right now)

and a little chewbacca i found at a thrift store cause his favorite movie is STAR WARS!  Cheesy

I hope he likes it!

2  Mini Mr. Happy Cloud shrine/bulletin board decoration! in CHALLENGE 14 ENTRIES by look_closer on: August 03, 2006 10:09:51 AM
This is my first time entering one of the craft challenges!  
Unfortunately I do not have any "making of" pictures, but I hope these will suffice!

I decided to do something relating to this character I created called Mr. Happy Cloud.  This is one of my drawings of him:

Because he's my favorite thing to draw, I wanted him to be my subject for this challenge.  I used a matchbox, a pearl heart bead, glitter, markers, gold pipe cleaners, and beads for the little feet it stands up on, and I made this:

Which measures just about 2".  
It's a mini shrine that also doubles as a bulletin board decoration!!!

He sure does make my pocket, and my bulletin board, happier!

Wheeee!!!  Cheesy
Thanks for looking!

3  Recycled pants wristlet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by look_closer on: March 19, 2006 11:50:29 AM
I made this wristlet out of 2 pairs of old pants whose fabric I saved.  =) 

bird detail:


I wanted a frayed/old feel so I didn't hem much of it.  The bottom fray was actually already there from the pants I cut, but I liked it so much I pretty much designed the whole wristlet around that. 
I hope you all like it!!  It was fun to make.   Grin

4  Pouch for Ren Faire! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by look_closer on: March 16, 2006 09:48:24 AM
I made this pouch to take with me to the Renaissance Faire.  I go every year with my mom and I'm always complaining about taking a normal purse with me because it doesn't go with my costume or whatever.  Sooooo here's my solution!

Also this is my first name using a sewing machine to make anything.  I'm excited!

5  Matchbox love! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by look_closer on: November 16, 2005 03:48:39 PM
Well I saw these matchboxes in an art gallery giftshop once that had pictures of famous people on them with glitter and such and I REALLY liked them.   But, since I don't have a color printer I can't really do that.  So I did my own thing, used magazine pictures, and this is what I came up with:

side 1

side 2

When I run out of matches I'm going to store tiny things in it like glitter and buttons and such.  Or I might make it into a tiny shrine.  I'm also thinking of giving these as christmas gifts.   Grin

6  Red polka dot cuff!!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by look_closer on: November 12, 2005 07:09:15 PM
I felt like making something tonight to get my mind off things so this is what I got.  I took some red and white polka dot ribbon and made a cuff with a strawberry button for added cuteness!!! 

close up:

It's actually a brighter red but my camera sucks.   Tongue
Anyway there ya go!!!

7  Modest Mouse Tote! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by look_closer on: October 13, 2005 06:01:54 PM
Whoo!  Ok, so this is my first post on Craftster.  I'm still pretty new to stenciling but I think I did a pretty good job on this bag considering I just used printer paper and then used a glue stik to make sure it stayed down.  I got the stencil from the stencil_swap community on LiveJournal.

Here's the finished tote!

Comments are always appreciated!   Grin
