1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Candy Wrapper Bookmarks (SUPER EASY!!!) on: December 20, 2004 10:27:19 AM
The other day I was reading a book in one of my classes after I had finished all of my homework.  My teacher had given some skittles for helping her pass out a GAZILLION math papers.  When it was time to go, I put the wrapper in my book as a bookmark.  It stayed for a while, at least, until I got home. Cheesy  I decided to make it a more permanate bookmark and sewed some felt on the back.  It looked pretty neat so I sewed up some more wrappers, except I used foam.  I gave away the original one to my cousin already, but I like the foam ones better anyways.  Here are some pics.

If anyone wants a tutorial, please tell me.  They are pretty self explanitory.


-This is my first time to post pictures, I am really sorry if they don't work and I will try to fix them ASAP!-
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Toy Capsules on: December 04, 2004 06:13:52 PM
I was leaving a restaurant with my brothers and we decided to get some of those little toys that they have in the vending machines.  I got these little capsule looking things that have stickers on them.  When you role them around, they kind of roll around by themselves...  I thought it would be fun to make some!  I haven't actually made them yet because we just BARELY got back.  Just incase any of you are kind of confused about what I am talking about, I mean the kind of capsules that meri used.  (Probably a bit bigger though...) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3140.0  We have a game that has all of these little metal balls involved and I thought that if I took a few and used those as the things to make them roll around, they would be awesome little X-mas presents...  Tell me what you think.  I will post pictures if I actually get around to making them...

Thanks for your comments! 
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Decoupaged Frames on: June 05, 2004 02:11:15 PM
Hey, guys... I just got home from camp!   Grin It was so much fun...  While we were there we had a few craft projects.  One of them was just plain painting a frame and putting pictures on it.  They also had those half marbles that you could put pictures behind and stick on your frame.  We also made some candle holder thingies.  All they were was small glass vases painted.  Some people painted the inside a solid color and the outside with stripes or something like that. That had a really cool effect.  I was thinking that all of those candle-makers out there could probably pour some wax into the jar.  I am sure that that is probably what you guys do decorating wise anyways.   Wink I just thought that was kind of cool...  just so everyone knows... I can't take any credit because it was just an activity we did.  Someone else thought it up.   Roll Eyes If anyone has already done something like this, I would love to see it.  There is just so much variation to they way that you can do this!  Cheesy
