2111  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Film Reels and Boxes on: September 09, 2010 11:45:41 PM
You could turn a reel into a clock. Get a clock kit from the craft store, or take apart a cheap dollar store clock. It would be nifty!
Those vintage boxes are fabulous. You could take the front and back of a box, reinforce them, make them into the covers of a family photo album! They'd be great gifts for family members, put in some old family photos, scan and copy some from relatives.

The last time, well the only time I bought gears on line, I got two small containers of tiny watch gears, but I forget how much they were. I have found ugly clocks at Goodwill-usually two dollars, I think four or five is the highest I've seen them. Watches at Goodwill aren't as cheap as you'd think. Once someone let me buy a few for two dollars each, usually they want ....can't remember, between three and five, depends on the watch. It was worth it for me, because I'm hard on watch bands! And I'll take one off an old watch before I'll pay ten dollars or more for a replacement one. So yeah, haunt thrift stores-you may get lucky.
Oh! Manto Fev! That's the website I bought from. It's interesting. Odd individual beads, fabric pieces, strange stuff. It has neat stuff, but since I'm broke, I haven't checked them out for a while.
And it's a long shot, but perhaps freecycle? I made the big gear in the middle of the dreamcatcher from polyclay.
Oh! hardware/auto parts stores! I wonder if they would have any? I've heard them reccomeded as good places for pliers, chain, doodads, ect. for crafting. Another long shot, but if you're near one...Good luck.

I love that necklace. Beautiful. And the mini tarot cards are such a neat idea-I'll have to remember that. Lucky partner indeed! I hit this rocks!

The teacups were from Michaels, but I'd had them in my stash for a long time. The box-it had a book in it originally, the front flap is magnetic. I painted over the writing with a few layers of metallic rust lumineire. I decoupaged the airship,then sprayed on one coat of clear acrylic sealer. I had a little bit of neat ribbon to glue around the lid, but it was a teeny bit short, so I glued on a couple of metal doodads.
What's funny about the picture? It was from a free local weekly, advertising a music fest. I careully cut it out, and placed it between a book so it wouldn't get lost or crinkled while I painted. Then I lost it. Fortunately there was another ad for it in that weekly-I never did find the first one I cut out!
I'm glad you liked it!

Oh, I've seen that book! I'll have to try that technique out sometime. Thanks, Atlascoughed.
I would have sworn that was resin!

Oh, the clothes are awesome! And I love that necklace, and the ATC, and...well, everything!

These are all great. My favorite is the brown wire. Nice work!

Sooo awesome! I told you she spoiled me. Smiley Now, to find the perfect place for my new art...

EEEE!!!! It's here! And I was majorly spoiled! Thank you so much!

Okay, since my amazing partner took pictures, I have pm'd her to see if she wants to post them or email them to me to post-whatever she wants!

I was sooo spoiled. A necklace that I've already told my daughter she can't have Smiley , a painted box, a tote bag, a fabulous notebook, and the most amazing piece of art to hang up! She so got carried away crafting for this. Pixiefirefly, you rock!
FedEx was supposed to deliver hers today, but the website says 'not found', even though the 800 number says it's on the truck. Oh, I hope it arrives soon!
I'll keep checking on it!
