361  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Hand bound book - again! on: December 09, 2005 06:14:39 PM
Sorry to those who had already seen it, but my post was lost  Sad.  Oh well here it is again.  I'm also including a diagram of the problem I had if anyone could offer some suggestions.

Whole thing:

Close up of photo:

Close up of ribbon:


Here's the diagram of what went wrong.  I found that when I glued the end pages to the cover, if the book was closed, the paper bunched up and when it opened and the pages were lain flat, the weight of the pages would rip the opposite side end page up.  If anyone has any suggestions they would be much appreciated.

I realise that this is probably the worst MS paint drawing ever  Embarrassed.

Link for the diagram if it's unclear or grainy:


Thanks and sorry for posting this twice.

Edit: I didn't realise how tiny the diagram was so I chaned it.  It's now bigger albeit grainier.  MMM grains!

Yes, it was posted before, by me...
I would appreciate credit, or at least post this in the same thread that I wrote with the tute.

I checked out your post, and the toys certainly are cute.  However, I think you misunderstood me.  I did not get the idea or instruction for the toys that I made from Craftster or any other internet site, but assumed that other people may have made similar items and posted them before.  Thus, I would not like to give credit for a tutorial I didn't use.  I will however, edit the original post to include a link to the topic you originally posted.

364  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Christmas Decoration Challenge on: December 04, 2005 10:12:06 PM
I know this probably comes a bit late, but I thought it would be cool if there was a challenge to make your own Christmas decoration(s).  People could make one super decoration or a set or garland of them.  It could be made a bit more interesting buy putting a price limit on materials, saying people had to use recycled materials, decoration must be edible etc etc

I thought this could be fun as it's kind of relevant and you can be really creative making X-mas decorations that aren't really tacky as it can be hard to find nice albeit affordable decorations in the shops.

op shop = opportunity shop.  i think they're called thrift shops in america or something like that.  basically they sell second hand stuff, kinda like savers but on a smaller scale.

also, no offense, but hasn't there already been a challenge like this?

This has probably been posted before so apologies if this is boring/uniterestin/unoriginal.

Anyway, my German teacher has a cat, who had a stroke earlier this year Sad, but is fine now Cheesy.  Seeing as my German teacher is a fan of all things Japanese and this was my last year learning German, I thought I'd make these as a gift for her.  We also gave her some little things for herself, notebooks and Diddl (German cartoon) pencils in a large tote bag that she could use for books etc.

Here they are, I made 2 nori rolls and one piece of ebi sushi.

Salmon and avocado:

Chicken teriyaki and lettuce:

Ebi sushi:

All together:






Each of the toys had 2 jingle balls inside them so the jingle when chased by a cat.

The following is a link to an earlier topic with similar toys:

368  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: First art post - vector graphic on: November 11, 2005 09:05:56 PM
those are very cool! I especially like the one with the two girls in kimonos.
Lovely work!!! Wish in could do vectors. Smiley
  Thanks!! I traced them off a bookmark I was given by my Japanese buddy when she stayed with us.  The bookmark is so cute and I'm too scared to use it!!
369  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: So how does one make a "brain" pincushion anyway? on: November 10, 2005 11:01:03 PM
What if you had like a base pincushion fabric and then sewed a piece of felt over it, but with like heaps of room so it sort of billowed.  Then you sewed aroung the felt in random patterens and then stuffed the holes if you like with more stuffing so they were like super padded and puffy and slightly brainlike. Then you could sew it up into a pincushion.   I made a cushion with a picture of a frog like that and it made the frog look 3D.  It might work for this too.  Or you could buy a lambs brain and stick pins in it.  Shocked  Just kidding!!!! (I'm vegetarian).

I made a childrens book back in the day (2002).  It was about a green fish that got bullied by some orange fish and eventually convinced them to accept him.  Pretty lame huh?  I just made collages out of coloured card and photographed them.  It would have looked better if I'd made a seperate collage for every page and glued them in but that would take for ever.  Anyway, heres a picture or 2 of the book I made (without text):
