Theat's cute!  It's great when you make someone's day like that.

Take them apart and sew them into a large piece of fabric.  Then you could make a dress or skirt or something larger with them.  Remove the pockets and locker pockets with them.

This might be a good opportunity to try basket weaving, and weave some kind of pattern with them.  Or weave into burlap.  Or use them to make string drawings on poster board.

Melt it down and make a new candle with it.  If you have any of those tealight tins, use them for molds.

Hot glue will get soft if you put something hot on it, like a cup of coffee.  I used weldbond, and so far it is holding up pretty good.  You could also try Elmer's spray adhesive.

Yay! I'm glad you like your package, pinokeeo! Most of the charms and such came from other craftster swaps, and I couldn't resist an opportunity to destash some other goodies. I know the directions were to only send what we showed in our pictures, but I did say I was sending scrapbook embellishments, so I think it all fits into that category.  Wink

It's a great package.  I will add some of my own, and use some of yours in other projects.  That's what makes Craftster what it is.

I've sent in my info.  Just waiting for confirmation.  This swap was great the first time around, I can't wait for the next round.  I'm gathering up all of my brown supplies.

I received my scrapbook and journal set today from Calluna. 

Everything in the package.  It was crammed full.

The journal

The scrapbook box with scissors, photo stickers, photo corners, and the foldout scrapbook

But wait...there's more.  There are scrabble letters, fancy yarns, beads, rainbow fabric, paper ephemera of all sorts, charms, rickrack...

...and even a recycled seed packet card.

Sorry this is so pic heavy, but there was a lot of stuff in the box.

Thanks, Calluna, for a great package.

I've had my share of dings and bangs but nothing that required stitches.
 I wanted to make a beach themed spice rack for a friend when hubby decided to help me so I wouldn't burn myself. I, not being very smart, was holding a shell upside down for him to fill with glue. He missed the entire shell and put a pile of hot glue onto the palm of my hand. (It gets better) My hand is burning so I use the other hand to scoop the glue off of my palm...duh!...still hot...fling hand towards the ground to get glue off....glue comes off hand and lands on top of bare foot!
Needless to say hubby doesn't "help" me glue anymore. Wink But the spice rack turned out awesome!

I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time, but that story is hilarious.

When you upload pictures, do your resizing on your own computer before you upload.  I find that I have more control over the size that way.  Also don't use anything less than 400 pixels.
