Crafting with VHS Tapes February 24th, 2011 Email 109 users recommend As a creative exercise, I spent a few days playing with VHS tapes. Diane Gilleland I love these sleek and simple bookends, which are made from VHS tapes and old CDs. Stretched VHS tape takes well to macrame, producing a cute (and sturdy) bracelet. Katin Imes Photo: Diane Gilleland When I want to do some "green crafting," the first thing I do is look around for stuff that's lost its usefulness and needs a second life. What you'll need: One or two old VHS tapesOne or two old CDsE-6000 glueSmall Phillips-head screwdriverCraft knife Note: I'm using VHS tapes with cardstock sleeves for the first of my projects. First, let's make a set of bookends. To begin this project, remove the cardstock sleeve from the videotape, and make sure the tape is all wound to one side of the cassette; this way, all the weight will be at the bottom of the tape, which is best for stability. Put a generous coat of E-6000 on the CD, placing it where the VHS cassette will go.

Craft Project: Plastic Bottle Beads I found a great tutorial for plastic bottle beads on ThreadBanger via Waiting for Wonderland. The beads were very easy and quick to make. I made them a little different than the directions by adding washi paper to them. Below I share how I altered the tutorial and a few tips for making the beads. Plastic Bead Tutorial, Click here. Instead of coloring the plastic with markers, I glued washi paper to the plastic. * When making the beads always use caution. * If you don't have a heat gun, a blow dryer will work too; I tried it both ways. * Be careful of over heating the bead which can lead to the edges curling up.

Tiny Pumpkin Pie My family’s Thanksgiving meal always features a magnificently high homemade pie-to-person ratio. I love the warm wafting scent of spices, pumpkin, and expertly rolled-out crusts emanating from a hot oven, and that anticipation of dessert after any already delicious dinner spent with friends and family feasting. Is your belly rumbling already too? For this week’s How-Tuesday post, Jessica Partain from Inedible Jewelry, a shop dedicated to mouth-wateringly realistic faux food jewelry, and author of The Polymer Clay Cookbook, has shared with us a tutorial on making miniature polymer clay pumpkin pie charms that actually smell like pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be complete without pumpkin pie! Purchase The Polymer Clay Cookbook right here on Etsy. Materials: For the crust: 3/8″ (9.5 mm) ball ecru clay 3/16″ (4.7 mm) ball ecru clay For the filling: 5/8″ (15.9 mm) ball orange clay For the whipped cream: 3/8″ (9.5 mm) ball white clay Directions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

Education World: The Reading Room EducationWorld wants to help you turn your students into the best readers possible. To do that, we have compiled the "Reading Room" a huge list of articles and activities designed to help you teach reading. We start with research-based concepts, ready-to-use tools, and extensions for learning provided by our own "Reading Coach." After that, we have all sorts of useful tools including scripts for reading aloud in the classroom along with other resources. Tying Read Alouds to Standards This list of suggested activities and strategies will help you make every read aloud count, and assure your principal that you are focused on meeting standards. Glimpses Into Read-Aloud Classrooms Merely inviting students to contribute verbally when you read aloud to them isnt enough. Using Micro-Text to Teach Writing In education, micro-texts refer to small, targeted bits of a book, essay, poem, newspaper, online publication, or other text.

Photo Tile Coasters {Using Resin} Last Christmas I almost had a breakdown... We had just moved in to our home the month before, but I didn't want to let that prevent us from having the holliest jolliest Christmas. My intentions were good. And that's how it happened. Well, with this project I created an anniversary gift AND a Christmas gift. While I was in Utah, my sweet cousin Michelle showed me a couple of projects using resin. Here's how I made these photo coasters... I started out with a trip to Home Depot. Next, I ordered some photos. Only 13 cents a print at Costco! I used a regular old Elmer's glue stick to paste each picture onto the tiles. I won't give a full tutorial on using resin because each product is a little different. After mixing the resin with the hardener, I just poured it on! Then it took them a full 24 hours to harden up! Once dry, I mounted 4 of the felt circles on the bottom of each tile so they would slide easily on wood without scratching! All done! Now these are stinkin' cute!! Happy weekend!
