1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: 50 cardboard pen boxes on: October 25, 2011 01:14:59 PM
I'm not sure about the rules for bumping up topics, so I apologize if this isn't allowed.

Just curious if anyone has any ideas?
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 50 cardboard pen boxes on: September 29, 2011 01:19:12 PM
Hi All!

I have 50 empty cardboard pen boxes that are a really nice heathered grey shade. They pretty much look like the picture, but without the pen and the strope across the top.

Any ideas?

I was thinking cute pencil holders (but people don't really use them anymore, do they?) or maybe tampon holders?

Thanks!!
Ashley

I absolutely LOVE the idea of a "never never land" room! I only wish I had an extra room in my apartment to make one myself. Definitely post pictures when you are done with it  Grin And I think the pillows will fit in perfectly!

I see what everyone is saying about the negatives of draping and covering the models in unflattering pieces, but the models were asked what types of clothing they were looking for. And in the runway show, not many (if any if I recall correctly) said that they would rather have had more form fitting or lower cut pieces. This isn't saying that the designers made poor choices (I thought they did as well), but they didn't seem to be given a lot of help from their clients. As I recall, the model who was placed in the poncho, actually told Robert that she liked ponchos. I guess it was up to him to realize that that would not be the most flattering piece on a plus-sized woman though.

i want to make some sososososso bad but i dont get the tutorial can someone help me?

yeah, i really don't understand parts of this tute either... is there an easier/clearer one somewhere?

I tried making a bowl the other night and had to give up becasue I was so confused. I don't think I am understanding how to fold the strips (from one corner to the other?) and then how to attach them. If anyone has time to post a pictoral tute (for us slow ones  Undecided) that would be awesome!

Oh, ok I think I know what you mean.  So I could put D rings or buttons or something on either side of the back and then attaching a belt-type thing?  That could potentially be really cute!

No, it has a very boxy shape, it's not fitted at all (plus, it's about a size too big).  It's interesting that you should mention air room becasue on my way to work today I was noticing that there was so much air room that it was blowing up the coat and making me colder!  Undecided I'm going to try taking it in a little with safety pins at the side and seeing what that does.  It definitely can't hurt!

Thanks guys!

Thanks Chilan.  I was thinking of taking it to a tailor, but that will probably cost as much as the coat did.  Thanks for saving me the frustration of trying to do it myself.  It certainly doesn't sound like an easy undertaking!
