1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Calendar envelopes - with brief, detailed tutorial on: January 09, 2008 05:45:55 PM
inspired by this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218905.0 of course.

Here they are - made from a calender published by the Historical society where I'm from

A couple backs - I like how the snowy house one has trees lined up on the back.

Now for a tutorial!

I used this http://images.scrippsweb.com/DIY/2004/02/20/large_envelope_template.pdf template

1. Get together a glue stick, scissors, an old calender and a ballpoint pen.

2. cut out your template and trace it on to the inside of your future envelope

3. Cut out this first envelope, but don't use it yet, because the stiff paper of the calender is much easier to trace than printer paper. Trace lots more.

4. Cut out everything. Carefully.

5. Here's an important tip - SCORE the fold lines with a ball point pen, scoring tool, or paperclip. press hard!

6. fold in the sides, and fold up the bottom(the shorter bit)

7. put a little glue on both sides that will be stuck together.

8. Revel in your envelopes. Maybe make some lick and stick glue for the tops from jello and vinegar (there are easy recipes online)

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Feelings are boring, kissing is awesome! on: May 30, 2007 06:31:23 PM
For any who are fans of Ryan North's Qwantz.com/Dinosaur Comics - I cordially present....


Never seen in the comic, only on a t-shirt, I made the professor out of an old 4-H t-shirt, buttons from an old blouse, and the cuff of a pair of black jeans (and also some black thread).

Here is just his head, next to my Christmas themed window (yes, I've procrastinated forever getting him here)

Finally, me holding him with the tee I got for my birthday.

Comments appreciated!!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My Mother's Quilts --- Img Heavy on: January 29, 2006 10:43:39 AM
I'm trying to post some quilts that my mother made.... I love them and thought they should get some props....
She isn't really too computer savvy, so I thought I would do it for her.  Unfortunately I couldn't find any pictures of her best four quilts that were done with photo transfer as wall-hangings for various families, but I will upload them later if possible.

Also, I'm only uploading quilts that my mother designed herself... no pattern.

This is an example of an "Eye Spy" quilt that my mom makes. She has made one for each new member of the family (babies), plus 5 or so others that she has sold.  They are for playing Eye Spy (duh) so the blocks are simple and have various types of fabric in them. No pattern repeats. There is also a square that is usually embroidered with the baby's full name and birth date but this one was for a charity raffle so there is no name on it.

This quilt was made for the same raffle and has a self-designed paper peice saltbox house block.   It is a King size.

This is probably the most boring of the memory wallhangings my mom has made. This one was made for a friend of the family, and features pictures of her kids.
