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.

2  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.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Edgy patterns? on: March 18, 2008 06:34:27 PM
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?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A Cheap Dorm Bed Canopy on: September 07, 2007 01:12:03 PM
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.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Swimsuit from old jeans on: April 20, 2006 02:32:07 PM
My family has put in a pool this year. Normally, I only have one swimsuit, but with our own pool, I need a few more. I was wondering if anyone had ever tried constructing a swimsuit from old jeans. Most of my jeans are stretch denim, which i think would work out really well. Since I am pretty well endowed ( Roll Eyes), I thought I should have more support than the normal swimsuit. Lukilly, I have a ton of underwire from old bras lying around as well.

Does anyone have any advice as to how I'd go about doing this? I was thinking of using http://www.supernaturale.com/articles.html?id=70 <- that as a base  for the bottom, but I am not sure how exactly I want my top.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gifts for Mom's (and dad's) 50th birthday on: November 24, 2004 06:22:11 PM

My mom and dad are both turning 50 in the next week, so i was wondering if anyone had any crafty ideas of things to give them. I don't want to do like, "I'll wash the dishes coupons" or anything like that.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Need an idea for a swan/flute trinket... on: November 11, 2004 02:19:52 PM
I'm in marching band, and for championships we all get bags with encouraging notes and whatnot in them. I was thinking of making something special for my section. I play flute and our mascot is a swan. If anyone has any ideas except for oragami (I am no good at that) I'd love to hear them.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cell Phone Charms on: September 06, 2004 12:35:23 PM
Hello. I just got a cell phone a few days ago. I'm a huge fan of Japanese pop culture, and in japan they sell cell phone straps featuring popular characters and various other cute things. Since it cost so much for shipping, I didn't think it was worth it to buy one online.

so I made these. The buddha one is from a charm I had lying around, the stars are from dollar store shrinky dinks. I also made one with a cow for my mom's phone.


Sorry for the blurriness, I had to scan instead of take a pic.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Marching band spiral-bound index card holder ideas? on: August 08, 2004 10:39:31 AM

I'm in marching band and I need to carry around one of those spiral bound index card books all the time, as well as a pencil. Before band starts next week, I should really make a holder for it that keeps it out of the way as well as holds a pencil. It'd be great if it is waterproof too, since unless there is lightning in the area, we have to march in all kinds of conditions.

The only thing I could think of was a purse-like thing, but I am a horrible sewer and I don't carry a purse normally anyway.
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Scrapbooking Paper? on: July 14, 2004 12:45:56 AM
I went to the dollar store and picked up 3 packages of scrapbook paper, problem is, I don't scrapbook, and I have no plans to start. I have Orange, green, and a multi colored pack. This is about 15-20 pages, they are 12"x12" i think.

I need ideas. also, I'm not good at oragami, lucky stars are the extent of my talent.
