91  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Isaiah 40: 30-31 Handmade Book on: December 29, 2006 04:58:56 PM
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
But those who hope in the lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles.

I made this book as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law and used her favorite scripture as my inspiration.

The book is constructed of a sheet of Tyvek paper sewn to a sheet of handmade paper, painted and folded, and decorated with feathers and a paper eagle made for scrapbooking.

For those who'd like more of an explanation of how it was made, there is a tutorial here: http://www.lunascura.com/art/booktutorial
92  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Decoupaged "Vintage" Playing Card Purse on: December 29, 2006 04:12:49 PM
Hi there! My first post here at Craftster!

I've made a few of these metal-lunch-pail type purses, but this one is my favorite.


Made it with a purchased round lunch-box from Michael's, mini playing cards from a 50 cent machine (they actually had purple aliens on the backs of them), acrylic paint & paint markers, various plastic gems, pix of some antique playing cards printed on my inkjet printer, and gray felt for the lining. 

Painted the box, decoupaged on the cards and print outs, glued on the gems, painted on a few designs and then covered the whole thing with clear acrylic glaze. Cut strips of felt to line the sides, bottom and lid of the box. The felt was key as it kept my stuff from rattling around in the metal box.

Made a great purse, held a TON of stuff because it's round, and wasn't nearly as heavy as it looked.
