1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / t shirt reconstructed into tote-ish bag on: August 11, 2004 07:22:29 PM
yeah! so, I had this gigantic (try mens large) tee shirt and I didnt really feel like making it into a smaller tee shirt...but it was way too cute just to give away, I mean it says "will work for sushi" for cripes sake.
sooo i made it into this tote-like bag:

It looks a bit nicer in real life, the picture doesnt do it much justice..buuuut yeah.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / liscense plate purse! (the cheap way...)Now with tutorial!!! on: July 07, 2004 11:57:21 AM
Okay, so I wanted to make a liscense plate purse but didnt really want to do all of the fancy-shmanct bending and welding and what not.
So I decided to instead use duct tape  Cheesy
here's my result:
I'm actually very proud of it

Here I made a tutorial! good luck understanding Undecided

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / simple dangle earrings on: March 19, 2004 08:06:35 PM
Here are some incredibly-easy earrings that I just made. Everyone here probably knows how to make them all, but I just thought I would share mine  Smiley
Here I made some guitar pick earrings (excuse the crappy photo Angry) that are really easy: You take a thumbtak and basically just poke it through, making a hole. You then use pliers to unbend the little loop on the fish hook earings, and put the guitar pick in the loop, than close it up. There you have it!
That one's just a closer look....and a bit of my frizzy hair >_<

And those are some dangle earrings I made for my sister that plays the saxophone..their saxophones, by the way  Wink
hopefully someone found that helpful!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / striped duct tape purse [text only tutorial] on: March 19, 2004 03:02:07 PM
Hey, I'm new here! I just made a cute purse pruely out of duct tape and I thought I would share it  Grin
I made this using red and white colored duct tape and then when I was done I just put a really large, vinyl sticker but anything can work. You can also use any image and just put them on with packing tape. I've made several other things out of duct tape and packing tape that I will hopefully be able to post later ^_^

Oh, ohkay, right. Hahaha. here are the instructions:
First, you need to know how to make sheets of duct tape. To do that, you make overlapping strips of duct tape (I used silver and then covered it up withthe different colored duct tape), overlapping around 1/2 an inch. You make as many as you want as long as you want depending on how big you want the bag to be. Once you're done with that, you basically have what resembels a very sticky piece of paper. Then, you must take some more duct tape and flip the duct tape over, making it so both of the sticky sides are  stuck together, leaving none of the sides sticky, kay?...anyways, so then you have one duct tape sheet. You then make another one the same size, and you then make two thin ones that are the same heighth of the purse, and one thin long one that is teh length of the purse. You then, duct tape them all together.and you have a purse.  If you want to have stripes or colored duct tape, you then recover it in the color, or that's what I do because it's easier. you can then add pictures or stickers or whatever you want to it. Hope I helped  Wink
