Drink Can Tinwork

Drink Can Tinwork
Tinwork Embossed tinwork is sometimes used to decorate rustic style photo or mirror frames, or just to make decorative items such as Christmas tree decorations. The metal used is usually thicker (tinplate) and is normally worked with hammered tools - I wanted to try to get a similar effect, but with a bit less effort. The Most Popular ArticleOn Atomic Shrimp No, really! I created this page towards the end of October 2008. More Metalwork If this project interested you, you might also like Lost Wax Casting Safety This project makes use of very thin sheet metal that is likely to have sharp, jagged edges and is prone to springing back. Great care should be taken to avoid injury. This project probably isn't suitable for children - and certainly not without supervision. Updated Autumn 2010 - now with Video Goodness! Soft drink cans are easily recyclable as scrap metal, but I fancied trying something a little more direct - a simplified form of tinwork. Materials Finished And Better... And Better Still

Binder Clips into Office Weapons Wow, if you thought working at your white-collared job, sitting in your well equipped air-conditioned office, thinking that this is probably one of the safest place to be… you may just want to think twice about that. The office is a jungle. Beside having to watch your back against office colleagues who may be wolf in sheep’s clothes, you may just have to watch out for those seemingly utilitarian office supplies, because in conjuncture with other seemingly innocent office supplies, they may just result to be one of the deadliest office weapon yet. Below is an example of our favorite office supplies- binder clips, turned into office weapons. Take a few binder clips of varying sizes, turn them upside down, and clip the smaller binder clips inside the larger clips. It should look like this when the larger binder clips have clipped the smaller ones. Remove all the binder clip handles. Add another 2 larger binder clips on top of the smaller edge with a rubber band in between. stumbleupon

I Really Wish I Could Sew | Pioneer Woman Home & Garden A sweet friend of mine sent the girls and me a box of adorably adorable owl pillows this week. She doesn’t sell them, doesn’t have an Etsy shop…she just makes them. I think they might be the sweetest things I’ve ever seen, and I think they’ll be precious in the girls’ new room. I don’t know what it is about owl pillows. It must have something to do with the eyes. I love this vinyl detailing. Vinyl? Which brings me to my current fixation: I really wish I could sew. But when I see things like this, all I can think about is that I really wish I could sew. I’d love to be able to grab a pile of fabric scraps and turn them into…an owl. I love this one. Boo! It would take me approximately eighty years to make one of these pillows. That’s because I’d keep taking breaks to go cook. And eat. So maybe it’s best that I don’t know how to sew. If I did, I might be tempted to make things like this. And then nothing would ever get cooked in this house. Maybe even twenty pounds! Yep. Ahem.

DIY: Stencil Pillow January 16th, 2012 Have you tried fabric markers yet? I finally got around to it, and they work great. {*style:<i><b>Supplies: </b></i>*}fabric item you want to stencil on some cardboard a pencil a letter stencil (I have this one. ) a fabric marker (I loved my black Sharpie fabric marker!) After choosing your quote, wrap your fabric over the cardboard to keep the marker from bleeding through and to keep the fabric stretched out smooth. Use a pencil to stencil your quote onto the fabric. Once you’ve penciled everything in, go at it with your fabric marker! The Sharpie fabric marker packaging didn’t say anything about heat setting the ink, but I will probably press my fabric before I wash it, just to be safe.

How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. FINALLY! You will be able to learn how to cut glass. I want to warn you. It’s best to triple your yarn because it will burn longer! Soak it GOOD! I like to tie my yarn where I want my glass to “cut” then quickly pour polish remover over the string again. Get a big bowl with ice and water ready. VERY IMPORTANT! Slowly turn your bottle. You can’t let the flame go OUT then dunk it in the ice water. YAY!!! I reallly hope you enjoyed this tutorial because I had ALOT of requests for it! © Copyright jaderbombllc, All rights Reserved.

Advanced Guns - Super Maul This was the first advanced gun and was constructed by Geir. It is made by assembling several Mauly clips and a thick rubber band and has tremendous firepower. With a regular pencil as projectile it can penetrate thick cardboard and empty soda cans. Never point this gun at anyone! This gun is not practical for random battles, but more of a gun for the determined assassin. Facts Assembly Make sure the row of Mauly 32's don't have any gaps between them and that they are aligned properly. Firing Put the pencil through the row of Mauly 32's with the bottom end first. Aim the gun at your intended target and release the pencil. Mount a laser pen on top or bottom for improved accuracy. The Super Maul can inflict huge amounts of damage when fired from short range, but because the projectile has a tendency to rotate after a while the long range capability of this gun is rather limited. We have tried to use a trailing piece of string for stabilizing the gun.
