if you iron your hem and wash it before you wear it, it should look worn like regular jeans.

Really? Hmm, I might have to cut up an old pair just to test this out!!

Am I the only one who ended up with a piece of paper with four holes in it?  Mine look something like this:

ooh.. thanks for saying this.. I was kinda balking at the price of the etching cream (i'm pretty cheap..hehe)
So what exactly do you DO with it?  Could I take a popcicle stick and scrape off the excess back into the jar? (Immediate responses would be helpful, I've already put the cream on a  glass, but I plan to do more so late responses are a-okay, too! Wink )

The first thing I thought of was magnets. Just buy some magnetic strips and cut them to size, get yourself some good sturdy glue, and go go go.  You could buy a magnetic bullitin board (This one is $20, but I'm sure you can find one at Target or Wal-Mart cheaper) and then you can spell out whatever kind of message you feel like at the moment and it'll be easy to change later!

Here is a link to magnetic paint if you want to magnetize a Scrabble board, wall, or whathave you.  I don't know what color it turns out to be - maybe it'll make the Scrabble board gray? Undecided If you do this I'd test it somewhere first to see the color.

Or here is a link to another craftster.org project where they used the board as a regular bullitin board and put tacks on the back of the letters to make them stick to it.

If you want to do kategirl's suggestion, I'd try Mod Podge to keep everything well sealed and in place.  I'm not sure how well this would work though...

That's amazing, it all looks so great together!! And it's definately something more unique than a scrapbook (which is what a lot of people give to exchange students when they come home to show them what they missed).

Cute cute!  But um, what's the patch on your back?  Huh
I thought it was the birth control patch:
I thought so, too.

Anyway, I love it.  I think it's super-dee-duper cute.  And I like that the lines are crooked - I tend to be a perfectionist, but things seem more authentic and unique if they aren't quite perfect.

I bought a pair of jeans from a store that does alterations for free if you buy there, and I asked about that.  The girl who helped me said they have an awesome new seamstress who does it by cutting off the original hem and resewing it on a few inches shorter.  However, I don't know how you would do this without having a weird looking seam connecting the jeans and the hem.  Undecided

I think I'd be worried about keeping everything sanitary.  I wouldn't want something to go wrong with the paint/glue so it made deadly toxins absorb into my food.  But, I have a phobia of all things unsanitary, so that's probably just me. Wink
