well... for future ideas, instead of using string, use those little pins made for making dangely jewelry.  You can get them at walmart.

As for securing what you have... if you have crimp beads you could slip a crimp bead on and crimp it which would hold everything in place.

The sad thing about nots is there habbit of coming untied when you cut the extra strands off.  Drives me up the wall.  You could probably trim those a little shorter without problem, they honestly don't look bad with the string hanging down though, kind of a cute touch.

They can't run too bad... I know people have used them on clothing before, and I'm assuming their clothing gets washed.  But I'm not sure.

 A safer way to find out than just throwing felt in the wash with your clothes might be to go to a fabric store and ask.  Or you could try soaking your felt in hot water and seeing if it runs.

Those are really cool looking.

Did you have any problems microwaving the cd's?  I remember a friend in high school microwaving them for kicks and them sparking like crazy.  Although I guess 5 seconds isn't long enough for them to spark? 

All my little microwave paranoias asside.. I love them, you did a really good job.  I'm going to have to try!

WOW?  Does that really work?  My boyfriend works for a fast food place and always complains because he can't get the smell of their food off of his hands.  We'll have to try it tonight.  Thank you so much.

Oh I like that.  And to think I have thousands of random pieces of sheet music laying around my apartment where I always photo copy what I'm currently playing.  I'll have to make a few!

I was thinking it might be fun to paint and put different letters/pictures on the keyboard key magnets.

On an amusing note, I bought one of those fake keyboard keys from a store once.  It was red and said something along the line of emergency, or something like that.  I can't quite remember.  But at the time my mother was just starting to learn to use the computer, and before she ever used it, the key got stuck right in over the escape key.  She never knew any better... that is until I asked if she'd used it and then explained it.  It was amusing.

I really like the keyboard magnets.  I'm going to have to locate some old keyboards and try that. Smiley

ice cube trays would be good for sorting or holding little things.  Beads you are working with, jewelry, little screws and nails... etc

I'm not sure how this would work, might be a little too small to be useful.  But perhaps use them as little candle molds.  They would make itty bitty square candles

Or still on the candle thought... use them as wax molds in one color, and then drop the wax squares once they cool into a larger candle that you are making.  Then your larger candle would have random squares of a different color (or even scent).

I was just informed that they are good for restuffing stuffed animals and bean bag chairs.  So i bet they'd work for anything else that needs some extra stuffing added as well.
