How To Make Bubble Paper/Art | DIY Maven Hand me a paintbrush and a piece of paper, and I’ll start to hyperventilate. It’s not the paper that does it. It’s the paintbrush. This means I’ll try just about anything to create original paper/art images using just about anything BUT a paintbrush. Here’s the complete list of what I used to make my bubble paper: bubbles ($1 for 3 at the Dollar Store)printer paper (although watercolor paper would be super cool too)a sinka small container to mix the ink and bubbles Here’s what I did: Mixed about 1 part ink to 4 parts bubbles in a small container. Laid the paper in the bottom of a dry sink. Started blowing bubbles over the paper. Now, there’s not much control here. Then something like this happens, and life is good. I used one such bubble burst to make this card, centering the burst inside the cut area. I’m definitely going to do this again using different colored inks. Like this: Like Loading...

How to Make Your Own Tablet Case | Design Waffle After Travis bought me a Kindle Fire HD for Valentine’s Day (this was interesting to me because we have NEVER given presents on V-day so I’m assuming this was secretly for him…), I immediately started researching options for accessories. I quickly noticed that all the cute cases were for ipads (as always) and anything that would fit the kindle had the one-size-fits all look and was meant for any tablet. I wanted a cute case, but most of all I wanted it to securely hold the kindle. So this is what I made and I’m going to show you exactly how I did it. I guess you could call this the before shot. This is my favorite lock screen image. Supplies: canvas board (these are perfect because they’re so rigid!) I found a few old canvas boards in our guest room just waiting for a new purpose as well as an old college textbook from the garage to use as the hard covers for the case. FYI: for this project, the photos explain the process a little better than my written explanations. Like this:

Tee se itse -valas You can find the tutorial in English here. ETA in February 2012: Hi! Nice of you to stop by! There will eventually be an English translation of this tutorial, so please have some patience:) In the meanwhile, I'm sorry to put up this disclaimer: It's OK to link back to this post, but it is not OK to copy all the photos and the tutorial, or translate it to another another language. Posting this as your own creation is even worse. Ja mainittakoon sama myös suomeksi: valaitten ompelu omaan käyttöön tai lahjaksi on OK, mutta kaupallinen käyttö ja kopiointi on kielletty. Denimvalaan ohjeesta tuli useampikin kysely, mikä ilahdutti kovin ja kauhistutti vielä enemmän – en nimittäin tule kovin hyvin juttuun ohjeitten kanssa. Valaaseen tarvitaan laje vanhoista farkuista, pikkutiplu sinistä puuvillaa silmiä varten, täytevanua, ompelukone, lankaa ja hiukan kärsivällisyyttä. Aloitetaan leikkaamalla farkunlahkeista valaan selkäpalat (2 kpl), vatsapuoli (2 kpl), pyrstö (2 kpl) ja evät (4 kpl). Tadaa!

Make a scrying mirror. Now here's a very odd but simple project that doesn't involve electronics at all, but has a very delicious element of darkness to it in more ways than one. It's a scrying mirror. Basically a black mirror used to focus (or defocus) the mind to perceive images often perceived as spiritual. Have you ever laid in a dark room and gradually seen random images like people or portals into other places? This project carries a risk of cuts from sharp glass, noxious paint fumes, alienation of religious friends and the possibility of opening a portal through which demons might possess your very soul. Here are the materials we will need for this project. We start by removing the glass carefully from the picture frame. The glass is washed thoroughly to get rid of any greasy fingerprints and dirt before painting. once again I must stress that the edges of picture frame glass are generally as sharp as a knife, so a sliding contact will cause a cut. Patience is a virtue! And there we have it.
