1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Battlestar Galactica DVD Booklets on: January 20, 2010 07:00:08 AM
I don't know if anyone here has bought the complete series of Battlestar on DVD, but the packaging really sucks. Picture of what I am talking about.


Those things that hold each individual season don't have actual disc holders inside, it's more like an acordian folded piece of black shiny cardstock, and each dvd sits in one of the folds. Of course, this means it is really hard to take out a disc without risking scratching it. One of mine was damaged during shipping because of it.

I'm trying to think of ways to make better holders that will still fit in the outside envelopes, cause the box is pretty cool. The inside dimensions of the boxes for each season are 4.75"Wx6.75"Hx0.75"D

I've had a few ideas about using those stick on CD envelopes, but since the dimensions are a hair wider than an actual cd, a lot of those stick on envelopes are too large. I also just had the thoght of cutting down one of those slim dvd cases to the right dimensions, then trying to figure how to make a book out of those, but I'm thinking with 6-7 dvds per season, it would be to thick for the 0.75" depth.

In short, I'm stuck.

I have the same pattern and my tarepanda is looking at me right now. Yours is great. I had trouble with running out of yarn, stuffing problems, basically everything that could go wrong. I also got the togepi pattern from the same seller, and I'll be posting that when I finish it off. Both turned out better than I expected.

So I actually hate Tonberries. For obvious reasons, but this is awesome.
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Help with a Hallmark Scrapbook (cheap supplies) on: July 20, 2008 09:30:40 PM
Hi. I'm not really a scrapbook fanatic (by that I mean I made 2 small ones as presents for some friends and I almost lost my mind) but I was given one of those Hallmark store scrapbooks/photo albums before I went away as an exchange student. It came with their standard self adhesive pages and a little page showing other sorts of premade pages that they have. I finally decided after a year of being home that I should probably get some of my most intresting photos from the trip printed and start rocking this book out.

I was in the mall today and I went into Hallmark, and all they had were the refill packs of the same pages I got with the album (I was sort of interested in checking out the other variations, so that was disapointing. They would cost 6.95 a pack and I would probably need about 7 packs to make sure there is room for all my photos and such.

Just wondering if anyone knew of a cheaper way to get the hallmark pages or had other ideas that are just as easy because self adhesive pages seem easy enough for me to handle without going insane.

So I found a Vouge pattern I really like V8350, the jacket with the tails. I'm wondering how hard it will be, but I'm off to the store tomorrow to hopefully look for something easier.

I'm a theater major in costume construction right now. Our final project is to construct our own piece of clothing from a pattern. I'm having trouble finding a pattern edgy enough for me. I would love a really awesome jacket, but the newest pattern styles are just way too wholesome.

(to give you an idea of what i was thinking, I was going to originally cconstruct either a Franziska von Karma or Trucy costume from the Phoenix Wright/Apollo Justice games)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

This is quite easily the easiest thing I have ever done.

Basically, all dorm beds have holes in the posts in case you and your roommate want to bunk your beds. All you have to do is go out an buy dowel rods that fit in them. Then I taped another dowel rod to the two in the holes (which is where woodglue or somehting would have been helpful). Then I took the fabric and stretched it across. The dowel rods bend under the weight, so I secured them (think like a suspension bridge) to my desk on one side and my fridge on the other. To keep the fabric from sinking too low, I tied a string to one of the dowel rods and took a sewing needle and put it through the fabric and tied it to the other side.

Basically, I had no plan beyond the dowel rods, so everything afterwards is sort of incidental. I plan on making it prettier when I get fishing line, but for now it's good.

This was a slight "My Roommate Isn't Around To Think I'm Weird" kind of craft project. I just wanted to make something to diffuse the light a little so that I can sleep better. Oh, and I wanted a fort. Cheesy

As I am not at home, I didn't have all the necessary craft supplies (fishing line would have been perfect, and wood glue probably would have also been helpful) so it is currently held together by duct tape, which is mostly hidden, and blue yarn, which is not so hidden.

There's a second phase to the project which involves painted wooden stars hanging from the canopy, but I haven't gotten that far yet, and I may not because I think I like it like it is.

I love him. The hair is absolutely amazing, but I don't really understand how you make it.
