We’re big fans of Altoids tins here at MAKE, which is why we love this awesome round-up of 22 Manly Ways to Reuse an Altoids Tin by The Art of Manliness. Highlights include: a pinhole camera, an urban survival kit, and my favorite, the fireball shooter.

Morgan Le Fae's Trinkets: Altered book, my new iPhone case. Lately my daughter and I have been making books and booklets, among other things. We even started a little DaWanda shop to sell some of the booklets we make. It's called "Morgan Le Fea's Trinkets, after my daughters second name. Making these booklets is very relaxing and leaves room for all sorts of creativity, as I found cruising the internet. So much creative people out there, it's amazing, and, as I found, many blogs reside here on blogger (or blogspot, whatever it is called).

So I thought I would start a blog here as well. I do have another blog on lifejournal (also called Morgan Le Fea's Trinkets), that is more focussed on making victorian clothes and unmentionables (another one of my interrests). Anyway enough ramblings on my part, on to the pictures of my new Victorian style Steampunk iPhone case. Made to acompany me when I go to the Elf Fantasy Fair in the Netherlands, dressed in victorian gear (ehm clothes). I hope you like my little new iPhone book. Thank you for your interrest.

It's been a couple of months since I left off from this project. I wanted to finish by making it a slipcase, which I was so hesitant about. (I don't really know why.) I was thinking, maybe a box would be better? No, I thought, because I really wanted to show off the exposed binding. The slipcase is made from the same faux leather material as the cover. Red and white has always been the perfect color combination for me. Art books and journals. Art books and journals. Bookarts: Exposed Tape Binding (Tutorial!) Adventures in instruction! My first attempt at making a photo-tutorial.

In essence: the pink headers outline the basic sequence of steps, the photos show ordered actions within each step, the handwritten captions describe what’s going on in the photos, and the italic text scattered throughout are side-notes/further-explanatory.

I’m not sure how I discovered this awesome collection of packaging templates but I’m glad I did!

Some professor or student at a japanese univeresity was nice enough to share all their packaging templates with the world! These are a few of my favorites and you can see all of them on their website. Every situation is covered! You sell Bon Bons? They have a box for that! You sell cake? They have a box for that! P.S. Stumbleupon. Frugal Friday - Upcycled Bottles. After New Years we had several empty Sparkling Cider bottles. I started to throw them away but thought *maybe* I could turn them into something cute! Valentine's is around the corner and I'm in need of a few more decorations. :) So first I removed all the labels (Goo Gone & a razor worked perfectly for this) and cleaned them out. Then, using a technique I found on Pinterest, I used my glue gun to "draw" words on them. They're not exactly perfect, but it worked. The glue strings can be cleaned off easily with some Goo Gone dabbed on a paper towel.

Once the glue was dry I took them outside to paint. *You could also do this with mason jars or any other drink or food jars or bottles you don't want to throw out Linked to:WhipperBerry. Best way to make fried marbles+a suncatcher... kind of. - MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS. I made fried marbles!! There are already several people who have posted these around this site, and on each post there are people trying to figure out the best way to make them. So I took the liberty of trying all of the methods to see which is best. I tried boiling, "frying" in a cast iron pan...

But the very best way, as well as the easiest, was to bake them in the oven. Put your clear marbles (It's useless to use solid colored ones. And here's my idea for what to do with them. Hope this inspires someone. DIY.
