1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What to do with Wasp paper? on: May 10, 2013 10:38:32 PM
Thanks for the ideas. The scrapbooking glue sounds like the best idea. I don't have the whole nest as something tore it apart. I just have largish sheets of the paper from the sides. I'm hoping to come up with a collage idea for it, so will probably glue it. I might try stitching some of it, though.

YKYACW you walk into your friends homes and they immediately head to their trash bucket to pull out all their fabric "scraps" that they threw away because they were "too small." I haven't figured out what size is too small yet. Anything I can't get a seam down I run through my felting machine.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / What to do with Wasp paper? on: April 26, 2013 09:24:13 AM
I had a bird house that wasps covered inside and out. It was really beautiful, but alas, something came along (I suspect Stellar Jays) and tore it apart. I collected all of the big sheets of wasp paper and now am trying to find something to do with it. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to glue/fasten it down to either paper or fabric? If glue, what type of glue do you think wouldn't ruin the paper? Thanks so much for your ideas!!

I'm so excited ---- I just did this --- it's so cool.  The regular old fashion Dynamo label maker like this:

and regular cardstock scraps cut the size of the Dynamo tape and put thru the dynamo:


Talk about texture and matching the rest of your card!!!!!!  This is just so cool!  I used cardstock that was black all the way thru so I put a little chalk on the letters so that you could see them.  But if you used cardstock that had a different color (white) back then you could sand lightly and give it a distressed look.

My paper shredder makes strips about the right size to run through my Dymo. I have to make sure the strip is running straight across the bottom edge of the alignment thingy, but that doesn't seem to be a big problem. My 4 year old grandson loves to make labels with the Dymo and this gives him all the strips he can use without using the spendy real labels. Plus it's really handy for me to not have to cut little pieces!

How cute! How funny! Be sure to save a copy of the picture. My husband and I came home from bowling one evening and knew that the youngest daughter had gotten away from the baby sitter when we found all of her winter pj's in our toilet. What we didn't know was that she had gone to bed with a felt tipped marker. Her eye sockets were colored, her belly was colored, you name it. Of course I couldn't scrub around her eye sockets and the ink turned a red color making her look like she'd been beaten. My husband almost had heart failure when he came home for lunch and took a look at her. But, alas, we have no pictures.  Sad
