Those are very cool.  Did you lay them on something to make them curve or did you do it while they were still hot?
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Lanyard Crazy! on: May 22, 2008 11:00:33 PM
At my job we all have to wear a badge at all times in the building.  The company provides us with a crappy little blue lanyard but it's boring and plain, so I decided to make myself a pretty new one!  When I wore it to work everyone thought it was great so I decided to make one for all the girls on my team, including myself their are 14 girls on the team.  I made 15 or 16 lanyards (a few aren't pictured) and I thought I'd show them off to you before I hand them out.  Let me know what you think!

All of them!

That looks really pretty and elegant!  Dumb question . . . did you decoupage the tissue to the inside or the outside of the plastic shades? Wink

Outside because the shades themselves are actually not completely see through

No smell at all.  We actually have those energy saver bulbs and it makes it so it doesnt get too hot and we dont have to worry about fires or anything.  Its wonderful

So we have this floor lamp from Wal*Mart and it works fine but the lamp shades were just cheap plastic and blah.  They are like this see through white and icky.  So i decoupaged them with some awesome glittery-swirly tissue paper and here they are!  One with the light on and one with it off.


and On...

A friend said it looks like it's marbled which is pretty darn cool

Hiya!  My name is Amber, I'm 22 years old and I live in Reno, NV with the love of my life (my boyfriend Bobby) and my cat Rafiki (yes like the monkey from Lion King).  I am currently attending community college off and on as a business major.  I work in a call center for GemsTV (we sell jewlery on DirectTV).  I'm a music freak, I love all kinds of music and I tend to be a pirate when it comes to both music & movies (Arrr where's yer booty?)  Lately I've been really into self help and trying to get healthier.  Um...I think thats it!  Let me know if I slipped something into my list thats a no-no Smiley
