12  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / >SEXY< Lion Girl outfit! HEAVY PIC TUTORIAL on: November 15, 2007 08:47:34 PM
Here is one hell of a sweet costume! All home made, recycled, and under $20

I started off with 1 big stuffed animal from goodwill ($5)

+ 1 gold velvet top from out of the closet ($10)

+ 1 headband from the 99 cents store (99c)
Opened the lion up and emptied it out

(this is the filling. i had four bags of this)

unsewed the head

(*cough*My Dad*cough*cough*)

Cut it and hot glue gunned it to the headband

(I added the bra strap like strap from the gold top so it would hold nicely as i shake me head and dance my way through the night)

Cut the straps off the top (as mentioned above)

Added two strips of the rest of the lion's mane to the top and made a skirt with the lion.

I also added two strips of the beige fur to go agound the top of my boots (who were the same color as the mane)

Tell me what you think!!

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Monroe Leopard Vinyl Purse on: October 03, 2007 11:20:53 PM
Here is the inspiration:

 - belt from the thrift store ( $2 )
 - huge leopard shirt ( my aunt was throwing out )
 - two records from the thrift store ( 99 cents each )
 - two pictures ( I just printed them )
 - scissors ( cut cut cut )
 - one hot glue gun ( mine is pink!! )

The original was sewn mostly. I totally hot glue gunned the entire thing. Seriously, I don't have a sewing machine at the moment and I thought it wayy easier than hand sewing it. I think I might sew the handles on top of the glue on for safety though.

Here is what I've done:

Close ups:
 The inside

 The shoulder strap:

 The pictures on the vinyls:

It's a Christmas present for my friend. I'm giving her a double Elvis CD too.

14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / how do i make a board game? on: August 23, 2007 09:57:19 PM
ok so i'm making my own game of "life". but i don't know how to put it together... cheaply...
i see it in like three pieces.. like each about the size of a sheet of paper (A4). and then hold it in three....

ooh or maybe i can just do it on a canvas or cloth kinda thing.. and fold it or roll it up... but how can i print on it... and there is too much small lettering for me too paint on it...

aaaaaaahhh...........................            help

17  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Honey-tastic Lip Balm >TUTORIAL< on: May 08, 2007 04:28:00 PM
I found this recipe somewhere on Craftser months ago. But I never had the time to test it. Until today.

Honey-tastic Lip Balm - Honey flavor, all organic, home made lip balm!

3 teaspoons vaseline
2 1/2 teaspoons honey
2-3 drops of vanilla flavor
balm container. I used plastic jelly beans that i found last month at easter time. You can use anything like a plastic bubble from a bubble toy machine. You can also use an empty lip balm container or buy tubes from cosmetic stores.
you can also add food dye or coloring, but i haven't tried it and i don't know if it will also color your lips.

Mix vaseline and honey in small bowl. Add vanilla flavoring. Mix for about five minutes or until it's completely smooth.
Spoon into gloss pot or whatever you are using. Set timer for 25 minutes. Set inside fridge with no top on. After twenty to thirty minutes, get out your lipbalm/gloss and check if it needs more time in the fridge. Put on or package it and add a label. This makes a GREAT gift for all kinds of girls!

Hope you enjoy it as much as i do!
