781  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Nintendo Controller Belt on: May 22, 2004 08:10:52 AM
I wish I would've done this before I got rid of my old Nintendo! I gave it to my cousin because I got a PS2. I would've loved a belt like this!

Hey, I have some great places for you! Red Bank is an awesome place... and there are many thrift/craft stores. Here's my little list:
*The Nearly New Shop-Monmouth Street. AHHHHH. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I bought a skirt and a necklace for $5.00 the other day. The lady that works there is really nice. She always compliments your purchases and tells you how great you look in certain things. They are closed on Sundays, as I found out the hard way.
*The Arch of Monmouth-Monmouth Street. This place has a lot of clothes, but also books, trinkets, and dishwhere. It's not my favorite, but I have gotten some things there.
*Backward Glances-Broad Street. This place isn't really a thirft store, per say, but it has vintage clothing and cool accessories.

Craft Places:
*Red Bank Bead Company-Wallace Street (they moved in July '05). This place is a GREAT beading store! You don't even have to know anything about putting the piece together... they help you every step of the way. They also have really reasonable prices.
*A Time to Kiln- Pottery/Mosaic/Teddy Bear/ way too many things in one store-Broad St. I think this place is expensive and overrated, but I made nice gifts there.

You could use it to decorate a room or a patio if you have a BBQ party. I know a lot of links are missing, but it might still look cool.

Unfold it, line it with colourful paper, and re-fold it so the design is inside. Use it to mail something super-special.

Well, you're in the right section. But maybe you could be more specfic. What is it you have lying around that you can use?

I dig that fabric! It's very cool. By the way... those cats are adorable!

That gives me an idea... maybe you could use a few old Twister mats and punch holes in them. That'd make a really cool  shower curtain. Too bad my bedroom's all retro and my bathroom's all magical-faerie-forest.  Sad -=pouts=-
788  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Breakfast Tray--With Pics and Tutorial on: May 19, 2004 01:58:34 PM

Above is a picture of a tray I made my mom for Mother's Day. That furry thing at the top is my cat Lucy, smelling the thing I put on the floor.

Anyway, here's how to make it:
 Smiley A frame large yet small enough to be a tray
 Smiley 12x12 scrapbooking paper
 Smiley Pictures, printouts, newpaper clippings, etc
 Smiley Flat decorations that are mainly used for scrapbooking
 Smiley Glue
 Smiley Two drawer pulls
 Smiley Access to a power drill

Step by Step
1. Take the paper and cardboard out of the frame. Use the paper backing (that they use to list the frame details on) to glue the scrapbooking paper on. Cover it completely with the paper of your choice.
2. Arrange photos, stickers, flat decorations ( I like Jolee's Botique), and other clippings onto the paper.
3. When you've achieved the desired look, glue it all in place.
4. Take the glass out of the frame and leave it off to the side.
5. Using a power drill, drill holes in the sides that can be used as handles.
6. Put the glass and the designed paper back into the frame and close it all up.

Hints, Tips, and Suggestions
 Grin This makes a great gift. Present it to a parent by serveing them breakfast-in-bed with it.
 Grin If you wrap this up with snack foods, magazines, books, and other time-passers, someone who's in the hospital or who is bed-ridden will love the gesture.
 Grin You can make this with anything you have lying around... wrapping paper, fabric scraps, etc.

If anyone makes one, I'd love to see it!

Here's my mirror so far... I'm using regular scotch tape to secure the old CDs. I only need about 3 small pieces per CD.

When you look into it, your image becomes distorted.. kind of like a fun-house mirror! It's way cool.

I love making stocking people! My art teacher makes really cute ones... mine doesn't compare, but here it is, anyway:

All I did was take an old knee-high that didn't fit and cut the top off. I used cotton batting (you can use the insides of an old pillow, if you want, or even cotton balls) to stuff the toes and leg. I made it into a round shape, much like a potato.
Then I tied up the top. I sewed into it, making a round nose. Next, I drew on facial features using a sharpie. You can attach googley eyes, yarn for hair, or a button for the nose. Be creative! My art teacher has an Elvis one, a leprechan, a santa claus, etc. The list can go on and on.
You can even make really little ones and attach them to pin-backs and add cloth decorartions. My art teacher did this and they looked really cute!
