1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Type O Negative Birthday for my Hubby on: October 10, 2007 05:15:09 PM
Ok, so Hubby's Birthday is on Sunday, and his favorite band, Type O Negative is coming to the RAVE in Milwaukee on October 20.  Sooo, being the wonderful wifey-poo that I am, I bought him two tickets to the concert, and made him a coupon good for one band t-shirt of his choice. 

Here's a close-up pic of the t-shirt and the package the tickets are in:

Here's the back of the t-shirt coupon:

Here's a pic of the package the tickets are in, as well as the envelope that holds the coupon for the t-shirt:

The tickets are huge because I ordered them online, so they printed on an 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.  I found some cardboard, and covered it in the wrapping paper.

I would have used some better crafty supplies, but I made this up today on my break at work.  I could only find the lime-green paper with holes on the side, so I punched holes on both sides to make it look like I meant for it to be that way  Tongue

I made the paper by first designing the Type O Negative symbol in Microsoft Word, and copying and pasting it over and over on a single page.  Then I printed it on the lime green paper.

I made the t-shirt coupon by finding a picture of it online, coloring it with a green highlighter, and using rubber cement to put it on a couple pieces of tagboard.  I then cut it out to the t-shirt shape and colored the back side with green highlighter, and made the little note on it with a sharpie.

A whole ton of tape later, I had a wrapped package, a card, and an envelope!  I hope he likes it... Smiley

Made out of pipecleaners and buttons that is...

I was bored and found my pipecleaners and buttons and pondered, "What can I craft with these?"  Then I remembered a project I had found on Family Fun: http://jas.familyfun.go.com/arts-and-crafts?page=CraftDisplay&craftid=10086

Here they are!

I also made the bat for good measure, here's a close-up.

I wonder if hubby will notice?   Cheesy
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES / Natural Silhouettes Grocery Bag on: August 01, 2007 08:56:11 PM
Ok folks, here's my first ever contest entry!  First off, I have to say that I love this challenge idea, and am looking forward to taking my bag to the store with me next time...

I had to cheat and buy my bag because we just finished moving over the weekend, and all my sewing stuff is still packed up.

But here goes:

I got the idea to decorate it from this link: http://jas.familyfun.go.com/arts-and-crafts?page=CraftDisplay&craftid=10018

I used foam letters to make the words, and trimmings from my new yard to make the leaf images.

It was fun!

My cat, Lucky, likes it too!  (Though he prefers to use it-and the other two I made-as a chair, rather than a way to carry groceries around!)
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Fat Quarter Drawstring Backpack [pictures included] on: May 09, 2007 02:56:02 PM
Hey Folks,

I was searching this site for drawstring backpacks, since I had one I bought years ago in Paris, and I loved it so much I wore it out... Cheesy

...And as such, I wanted to make a new one!  I had a good idea on how to make it, but I wanted to find a tutorial or something to make it even easier for me.  I found some good ones on here, but then searched Google to see if I could find something even more helpful, and I did!  I know it's not my genius, but it's great, and I just had to share it with you!  I plan to make one tonight...
