1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: altoids tins and altoids gum tins on: June 10, 2008 05:18:49 PM
I keep my hair pins, rubberbands, clips...all sorted in their own tin. Simple, but I've been doing it for years and I would never go back to my unorganized ways Wink

Lucky you! I love working with hankies...here's a few ideas:

- clutch
- stitched envelope
- baby clothes (sew a few more simple ones together)
- put them on an embroidery hoop and hang them as art
- adorn a skirt or shirt

I think maybe you posted this in the wrong area. You might get better tips in a different section. Good luck!

With all the worry about plastic leeching toxic chemicals, I have switched my tupperware from plastic to glass. When I have jars with lids, I try to use those to store food.

Also, I found this craft on Martha:

I used enamel paint and etching cream to give the jars a really pretty beach glass look.

I am in the process of pressing leaves and flowers that i am going to adhere to an old serving tray and cover with plexyglass. I wanted to display these pressed items in a functional way and repurpose a tray that doesn't go with my kitchen. Hope that gives you ideas Smiley

Oh how cute! I just started fusing plastic bags together myself. Target bags are great for fusing and sewing together. Great job, keep up the good work Smiley

This is darling! Did you use a pattern? Such a unique twist on a vintage looking piece. Great job!

She's darling, great job! I'd show her off to the world by putting her on a bag or a skirt.

I agree, the weight of the facric may play a part in making them look like socks. Also, I think making the toe more rounded (and less curving to the contours of your toes) would help make them look more shoe-like.
