11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HELP! fabric paint? on: May 26, 2004 10:49:54 PM
hey all --

i'm captaining a team for this year's american cancer society Relay for Life. our team is doing a campsite fundraiser -- DIY tshirts

we're getting a ton of plain white beefy -tees for people to decorate and do t-shirt surgery

what kind of paint (the cheaper the better) would you recommend for decorating the shirts -- i'm hoping to get some glow in the dark paints too

thanks for all your help

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / cute Beaded Earings on: May 20, 2004 05:39:02 PM
i was cleaning out my room and found a whole boxful of beautiful glass beads -- i was in need of some earings and came up with these (i've gotten tons of compliments at school -- now i want to know what you guys think)

^^these were made with pink and clear glass beads, stretchy string, and  lucky paper stars painted w/ clear nail polish

^^these were made with green and off-clear glass beads (well, duh)

(sorry, my camera sucks so the color's kinda off)

i'm working on making some more -- any ideas on colors and patterns?

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / TUTORIAL: Origami Wallet on: May 03, 2004 02:49:38 PM
*NEW! Now with tutorial (finally)*

After a year and half... i guess this thread came back to life and i've been getting tons of requests for a tutorial. So (screw the publishing company), I uploaded the instructions. The words are kinda hard to follow,  but the pictures are self explanitory.

-Paper: 8.5"x11" (standard letter size)
-Clear Packaging Tape (You can also laminate the entire wallet using soft laminating plastic stuff)

1. start w/ white side up, short side on top. fold paper in half
2. lift bottom edge of front layer only and fold it up approx 3/8" (0.8cm) to form small hem
3. bring folded edge of hem up to lie approx 5/8" (1.5cm) below the top of the edge of the model
4. fold up the bottom raw edge to form a hem approx 1/2" (1.3cm) wide
5. a) make a valley fold at the dotted line. b) lift flap labeled "x" upward (in other words, unfold crease labeled "y")
6. fold in the right and left sides of the paper to form a hem on each side approx 5/8" (1.5cm) wide. crease&unfold

7. refold on the vlley crease nearest the bottom edge
8. mountain fold the bottom corners up to the nearest crease. make a sharp crease and unfold
9. on all but the front layer, fold the right and left sides inward on the existing hem creases. at the same time the small slanted folds at the bottom of the front layer should be folded backward to accommodate for the hem creases.
10. folding on the existing horizontal creas (dotted line) bring the top edge down and insert behind the wide band at the bottom
11. mountain fold the protruding tabs and tuck them in btwn the double layers at the sides of the model
12. fold the left side of the model over to lie just sort of the right edge. crease firmly and unfold. repeat, bringing the right side almost to the left. this forms the wallet's spine.
13. all done! *tip* add a bit of glue ito the tabs you inserted in at step 11. --- to make the ribbon closure like i did.. just slip a long piece of ribbon thru the wallet.. and then glue the tabs down.

i've been reading this MB for quite awhile, and i think its about time for me to contribute something --

i've been making origami wallets for quite awhile for both personal use and for my friends .. here's one that i recently made ( i'll get a pic of the inside asap)
outside, opened

front, closed [its fastened by a ribbon]

any comments would be appreciated!

-steph (btw, if any of you are wondering, the pig cartoon + sty<--my initials .. which make [pig sty] is my little trademark thing or whatever you call it) haha just a random fact..

**edit** here's the pics of the inside -- so sorry it took me so long (no, its not the same wallet as above)
