2  What went wrong? the cutting or the folding? in Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions by floatingmoon on: March 26, 2008 11:09:57 PM
I want a get a 'rectangular' paper with 4 right angles (90degree).
So I use the trimmer to cut 4 sides (below is trimmer)

I marked every corner I cut, so I wont miss.

Then I click the black 'scoring blade' on the trimmer, I want to get a 'perpendicular' folding lines. I want to make the paper into a 'card stock'.

After that I fold the paper, but it's not 'result right'. The paper doesn't look 'parallel'. I don't mean by not getting folding lines into the precise middle of the paper.
So what went wrong, the cutting or the folding?

p.s. I know there's card stock I can buy. But I am doing sth of a different size.

The following are just "suggestions". I am just suggesting, I am not trying to "made" you do as I told. So please don't get all mad etc. (I have to explain this, coz some people think irrationally and think I am "telling" them to do it this a that way.)

I think of 5 options.
Option A B: However, they are not Greek Goddess style.
Option C D E: it's greeklike

Please please please "try/test" first before you do it "permanent". Coz I don't know if it's gonna work or not.

Option A (regular style dress)

Add elastic inside (between the green dots)
And the dress may be a bit plain with just that elastic, so you can add a sliver belt etc, but it's up to you.

Option B ("Carmen")

See the "T" (the white line), that's a transparent bra strap.
Pink:the elastic strap (lace-like) attach to the dress
Red:the drapery sew around the opening.
Color red/pink? it can be whatever color, I choose those color just to explain to you more easily.
If the work place still not allow that style, well, then add a scarf, like how people wear their scarf when they go to ball dinner.

Option C GREEK

Not sure how your armpit area of the fabric is. The wwww part of the chest area fabric, you can turn into a elastic wrap around you, and it can create some fold and thus greek like too.
Again, you can use transparent bra strap.
Blue: soft fabric that look like a scarf, or if you have a long scarf and it matches, why not. (can be any color, such as white)
And for the end of the dress, may be cutting it diagonally would make it look more greek too. It'll be nice to match with a ballet style shoes and then some gold strings on the feet up to the knee. etc.

Option D GREEK

I know I know, the statue is a guy. But you are a lady, it's OKAY.
I like the 'scarf like fabric' that lay on his shoulder. It's a similar affect with Option C (the blue color). (hope you know what I mean)
And yeah, add some leaves wreath on your hair, that would increase the greek look.

Option E GREEK

No, I don't mean the to "low" V cut as low at her dress (that may not appropriate to wear to work)
I mean, can you kind of cut the dress a bit and turn it into the "y"
shape cutting?

Hope things will work out and have fun. Take it easy coz you are doing all this because you want to have fun, so don't stress out yourself.

4  Need help with "Magic Punch" (punching art metals on fabric, please see details) in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by floatingmoon on: October 22, 2007 05:23:12 PM

I can't really figure it out how to use it, I read the instruction already.

Anyone know how? Where can I find more details instruction online?

P.S. It's a good deal, just $4.99

5  Pomelo Lantern in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by floatingmoon on: September 26, 2007 01:44:10 AM
Pomelo is commonly used to celebrate moon festival.
Here is the Pomelo Lantern I made:

It's easy. You need tea light candle and chopstick. But please don't be quick, be careful when you are using the knife. And please put something under the Pomelo Lantern, coz the wax may leak out of the Pomelo. Also never leave a lighted candle unattended.

It's kind of like a traditional crafts, so I didn't create this idea.
