I got the idea to make these little bowls a few years ago when I bought Mark Montano's book, the Big-Arse Book of Crafts . (Mark Montano is the most brilliant crafter around-- I love his books and his projects.) One bowl I made sits on my dresser and holds little hair knickknacks, and I gave a few bowls away, but I never got around to writing a tutorial about it. To make a vinyl record bowl you need: -Real bowl (One that can go in the oven.) -A vinyl record (I chose some polka records because I liked their colors. This project is so easy and fun.

After you take it out of the oven, just press the record down into any bowl or shape that you want. Hold your record in place inside the bowl until it hardens again. (My favorite one.) And that's it! You can keep whatever you want in these bowls, I think I am going to take mine to work and put them on my desk. Patchwork PIMPOLLO. Наблюдать за эмоциями людей всегда интересно. И как же здорово, что мое творчество (слово "работа" здесь точно не подходит) мне дает такую отличную возможность. Когда я отдаю изделия заказчикам это с одной стороны самое волнительное, но и самое благодатное время)) Ты ощущаешь, что все не зря, что твои задумки оценили, детали все заметили, что "попал в точку". Приятно видеть улыбку на лице, когда человек получает пакет с игрушками и... ( понаблюдаем за эмоциями вместе...Collapse )

Vinyl Record Purse. Whenever I go to thrift shops, I always browse through all of the old records they have for sale. The designs, the colors, the album art-- they're so fun to study the designs in pop culture a few decades ago. There are many ways to use old records, but one of my favorites has always been a purse. Whenever I see a vinyl record purse in a boutique or online, they're always SO expensive. So I decided to make one of my own.

To make a record purse, you need: -3 Vinyl Records -An old purse strap -A split ring to attach the strap to on the record purse -An old black t-shirt and some fabric for the lining -A drill -A piece of wood to put underneath the record when you're drilling -Embroidery thread/ribbon -Oven -Scissors First I cut off the bottoms of the 2 records that make the outside of the purse. After the records were cut, I used a drill to make holes all around the border of the records. Then I stitched the bottom of the small piece to the larger record pieces with ribbon. Inside. Make Your Own Play Teepee. Play teepees aren't the new kid on the block anymore but that doesn't make them any less exciting! I made my first version for Sebastian when he was two by constructing a simple frame and throwing a quilt around it. Soon after I made a more complicated cover and gifted it to Elsie and Jeremy for Christmas.

Recently Elsie asked if I could make another for their new home out of lace. It may be the first of two, though, because a certain little girl has become quite taken with the idea of having a teepee in the dining room. This is an updated tutorial of my last version but isn't too much more complicated. I added a strip of fabric at the bottom of the opening to add a little more stability to the shape which meant changing the opening a bit. 1. 5. 9. 13. 17.

Talon-ted but tawdry: Water Spotted Comparison 2. This is the take 2 of my experiment with different products to achieve the water spotted look. You can see my previous comparison here, and find some links to tutorials, too, if you're new to this technique. I used the two winners of my previous comparison - a haispray and a perfume - plus a few new challengers :) Another hairspray, rubbing alcohol and a mix of gel hand sanitizer and rubbing alcohol.

The black polish I used was, again, Borghese Notte Black.Perfume The perfume performed well, like the last time. The spots were even in size, and clearly defined - although they look small in the pic. Nelly hairspray Nelly hairspray created larger spots, which do not resemble the original black spotted effect, but which I like nevertheless.

Ingredients Instructions. {Tutorial Tuesday} Printed Brown Paper Lunch Bags. Yes, I realized that brown bagging isn’t as environmentally friendly and yes my kids do have reusable lunch bags. That being said we also use plenty of brown paper lunch bags. As part of the {handmade} Back to School series, I made a tutorial for printing your own graphics onto lunch bags.

A friend of mine printed onto bags last Christmas and I thought that was such a great idea! Create your printable in Word by changing the page size to what ever your bag size it. Tape the flap down and the opening shut. Insert the taped bag into the printer. After the image is printed, gently remove the tape. Since you have nothing but time on your hands, punch 2 holes and thread rick rack through them to close the bag. These would also make great treat bags and you could do a graphic that fits with the party’s theme! Chromeless - R29 Video (Default) Storage | The Improvised Life - Part 3. DIY.
