1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Magazines: Mini Trash Bins/Storage Containers on: January 01, 2008 01:12:21 AM
Now that the holidays are over, I'm sure all of us have stacks and stacks of holiday catalogs and magazines that are completely useless to us. My family has a tradition of sitting down together to make mini trash bins for the new year. We use them mainly for food scraps (nut/seed shells, edamame shells, fish bones, etc.) but they're also good for storing other odds and ends. These little containers also double as a nice tabletop decoration (especially if you use colorful catalogs!)

Here are the containers in action

Here they are stored (one of the containers can be used to hold all the others):

Let's stay GREEN this new year!

If anyone wants a tut, I'll be glad to draw one out...just let me know =)

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Chinese Stone Seals on: March 06, 2006 10:21:27 PM
I haven't posted a project onto craftster in over a year (!!!) and I thought it was about time to come back.

I was recently commissioned to carve a Chinese stone seal for a couple I met at a multi-cultural fair & here's the end result:

The characters are the phonetic translation of "Irene" into Chinese & the actual size is a bit smaller than the photo shown.

Hope you like it! =)

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chinese Knotting::Turtle Keychain on: August 12, 2005 11:25:41 PM
A friend of mine taught me Chinese Knotting just a couple days ago ... after a long while of being terribly confused, I managed to make a turtle keychain!

isn't it adorable! (both these pix are *ACTUAL* size)

"help me get up!"

**We're hoping to sell these to help pay for costumes, fans, props, etc. for a Chinese dance assembly @ our school ...so I need everyone's honest opinion--
1. Would you buy it?
2. How much should we sell them for?

Thanks a bundle!

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / mini-PomPoms + eyepins = Holiday Sparkle (earrings) on: December 06, 2004 09:06:06 PM
Hi everyone! These have got to be the simplest holiday earrings ever -- they're great as gifts too!


- Eyepins
- Mini Sparkly Pom Poms ( i think they're the holiday pack)
- Glue (clear)
- Seed Beads
- Earring Hooks
- Needle

1. Attach the eyepin to the earring hook
2. Push needle thru the center of the pom poms to make holes (so they go onto the eyepin more easily)
3. Cover the eyepin with glue (not too much though!)
4. Put pom poms , seed beads in whatever pattern you choose (you could also do a series of eyepins so they're extra long and dangly --- use your creativity!) 
5. Wear/ give away  Wink

here are the 3 i've made so far: (ignore the yellow origmai ones at the end.. i was taking pictures w/ the 2 in 1 function on my camera and ran outta pom pom earrings to take pics of)

yuup, those metal cages over my boom box speakers make good earring holders! haha


7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Origami Earings - now w/ link to tutorial on: November 19, 2004 06:27:04 PM
Hey Crafters,

For the upcoming parking lot sale at my school, I made some earings to benefit the American Cancer Society. Hope you like em !

I made lots of these ones:

and just decided to stick this one in for fun



TUTORIAL (its a link)

i was browsing for other origami projects to make.. and what do you know, i stumbled upon a ready made tutorial for the origami at the end of my earrings!


after you make that, put glue on the end of an eyepin, then stick it thru the top, then attach the earing thru the loop of the eyepin

the last earring uses 2 bird bases stuck together -- if you need more help, just pm me

good luck! and post your stuff up -- i'd love to see =)

-----* NOTE ABOUT TUTORIAL *---------

Nine -- thanks for fixing the tutorial! hope this helps you out:

Good luck!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / funKAY yellow earings (cleaning out the garage wasn't so bad after all) on: October 05, 2004 09:00:40 PM
so, awhile ago my mother made me clean out one of the cabinets in our garage -- i found a crapload of stuff -- including saftey pins, black wire, and 3 tubs of random plastic things. so, i was felling pretty happy (hence the color yellow) -- and i  came up with this:

hope you like em!  Wink
