1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Kitty hat from 1 continuous piece of fabric --- TUTE Added! on: April 05, 2009 06:50:36 PM
Hey everyone!  I've been off craftster for a while, but it's good to see that this tute was useful!

Those are all such awesome ideas!!!  Thanks everyone! I'm gonna have to try some of those.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: I've exhausted all search engines, I need some unusual invite ideas! on: September 09, 2007 06:16:19 PM
My first thought after reading it was also a postcard of the location. 

Here are my ideas:

-You could etch the information on glasses.  I'm not sure most people want another piece of unmatching glassware, though.

-We have a tiny vase that is meant to fit one flower that I really like.  You could put one flower in each invitation and etch/paint the tiny vase with your wedding info.

-get bottles of bubbles and somehow put your invite on them.

-Magnets with the invite info and a picture of you.

-Make paper flowers and have the invite info on the paper already.  You could do this with any origami shape you wanted, actually.  That would be awesome.

I have tons of sharks teeth collected at what we call "shark tooth island" near my house.  It's so fun to find them, but now we have quite the collection. 

Any creative ideas of what to do with them (other than the obvious shark tooth necklace)?

Yep, that's a cast.  I broke my wrist skateboarding.   Undecided I now have 2 metal plates in my wrist!  Hardcore!

The only problem I find with tutus is that I can usually find an excuse to wear it once, but after that it may just sit in my room.  That would be such a waste.  Maybe I'll try to sell it for a little bit, as I'm moving very soon.

Pride prom is more for fun than political...but it's great for support and acceptance of the community, so I guess it is political too.  I am simply in love with rainbows, in any case.

July, sorry you didn't get to go to yours.

Here's my tutu I wore to a pride prom.  It looks kinda a mess in this picture...but it's what I've got.

And the link to tutes.  I did it by the knotting method onto a strip of stretchy fabric.

For packaging you could also reuse newspapers.  They usually stay fairly clean, and are extremely easy to find.  Just look for your nearest paper recycling bin and take a pile every once in a while. 

You can also use paper bags from grocery stores (though I take my own cloth ones) as the actual envelopes.  I've even seen newspaper used as the envelope (it was the comics section so it was quite cute).  You'd need to tape the mailing address to it though to make sure it was clear to the postal service where it is going if you used newspaper.

You could also look into vegetable-based inks for printing.

So awesome!  I love making origami flowers (my fav is roses).  These look even more complex though.  Did you already know how to do this, or did you find instructions online?

He is so awesome!!! Great job!

But cutting the head off of one to put the drive in?  Sad  That would be way too sad.

Sounds and looks amazing!  I've been really wanting to make some vegan pesto, but didn't know how to do it. 
You are awesome.
