1  Twilight Shirt -- Iron On Transfer in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MamaLou03 on: November 09, 2008 08:29:57 PM
I'm no good at sewing, painting or stitching but I'm pretty handy with the Paint Shop Pro so I whipped up some graphics and printed out some iron on transfers to make up my own Twilight shirt for the movie opening on the 21st. I've got my advanced tickets.  Grin

No face because I was in no shape to be photographed after a long Sunday of crafting and cleaning. Tongue

Yes, I'm a 28 year old married, mommy Twilighter and I am not ashamed!  Cheesy

2  Faux Butterfly Shadow Boxes in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by MamaLou03 on: October 18, 2008 09:52:12 AM
I saw paper butterfly shadow boxes at Target a few weeks ago and decided to recreate them myself. I found the butterfly stickers at the Dollar Store and everything else came from Hobby Lobby. I was even lucky enough to find the shadow box frames on sale for 50% off.  Smiley

For a total of about $24 I was able to make two for my bedroom. They're not perfect, a little uneven in places but I love them. They remind me of the genuine butterfly shadow boxes my mom had when I was a kid. I've looked into buying real ones but they are incredibly expensive so the fake ones are good enough for me. Grin

3  "Floating" Photo Ornaments in Winter Holidays by MamaLou03 on: November 19, 2007 03:20:57 PM
I love to use photos to personalize gifts. Last year I did magnets so this year I'm doing photo ornaments.

The pictures are double sided and laminated so you can see them no matter which way you hang them.

I "floated" them in the bulb by hanging them from thread and attaching the thread to the rim with hot glue. The ribbon covers any hot glue marks.

The snowflakes are rub-ons. Be careful with these though. I smashed one of the balls in my hand while trying to rub-on a snowflake. It takes a lot of pressure and the ball can't handle too much. I figured out to use the tip of my hot glue gone to heat up the rub-on so it would transfer more easily.

Once I figured out the method, each ball only took about 20 minutes. Smiley
