21  Re: A mad sweet 16 in Party Planning by mermaide on: June 03, 2006 08:23:23 AM
I finally had my party. Here are some pictues:

I managed to find random cups and dishes. There were 3 different tea pots and a pitcher if iced tea for those who don't like warm tea. I don't know if you can see it, but there is a drinkme sign next to the green tea pot and pitcher. Two platters of finger sandwiches that were very good. Chocolate chip and gingerbread cookies. My guests came dressed like circus freaks  Cheesy, but none of their pictures are up.

The cookies say eat me.

The cake looks like black diamonds/red hearts kinda thing.
Later, the cake caught fire because of too many sparkler candles. I hope this party has inspired some of you to have a mad tea party =)

22  Pretty fairy flower crown [[with tutorial]] in Completed Projects by mermaide on: April 17, 2006 09:09:30 AM
Yeah, that's the top of my head.

It's quite easy to make, as long as you don't break the flower stems. Here's how:

Sorry, the text is bad because it's a cheap paint picture. If you can't read something, let me know.

24  super-easy Nintendo DS case!... in Completed Projects by mermaide on: January 24, 2006 04:57:29 PM
...For those who love their handheld gaming system! I made this for my sister's DS. The fabric (which says "tiger shark" and has 3 tiger sharks on it) is actually a pair of [clean] swimming trunks lying around.
+I just cut a rectagle from it and sew the edges so it doesn't rip.
+Then fold it up more than half way and sew the sides close with an embroidery stitch (is that what its called?).
 +For the flap, I used one of those clear plastic snap buttons and the string is a shoe lace. Yeah, I improvised a lot.

She has a nintendog skin on it  Cheesy

25  I decorated my CACTUS (with tutorial) in Winter Holidays by mermaide on: December 18, 2005 10:41:22 AM

(my sister made the star and the string of beads just because she wants credit)

1)make paper beads: Roll up strips of paper and glue the end. Fold a piece of string in half, then knot the end. Put a seed bead through it (to keep the paper bead from falling off) then put the paper bead through. You can hang the beads at the cactus thorn things.
2)make a string of bead "lights": Take thin wire and loop seed beads through it about an inch apart. Double loop it. Wrap the wire around the cactus and fold the ends of the wire. Don't stab the poor cactus.
3)make a folded star: Tutorial here: http://www.dltk-kids.com/world/japan/morigami_star.htm   Cut a + shaped slit on the bottom of it, and place it on the cactus.
