Please tell me you have a shop somewhere with these in it >.<
SQUEEEEEEEE! <3 <3 <3
Please tell me you took notes when you made him!...A how-to/pattern would bring me much joy! :D
it looks great! <3
You seem a bit insane....I like that XD
Manda! *hug tackle!*
Beautifully messy! I love it! <3
I think I now know what to do with my collection of ramune marbles! Thanks! :D
beautiful! Is there a book or website where I can find the folding instructions? I'd love to make one or fifty of these. :)
Hot glue would probably work. I just avoid using it myself because I always make a mess of it.
Hmmm...it seems the "made using a how to found here" feature of the project posting doesn't work. :(
Well here's the link: http://justsomethingimade.blogspot.com/2009/03/little-wire-bird-nests.html
I can't wait to see how yours turns out! :D
Eeep! I can't keep up with all this attention! >.<
So I think the bottles I used are the same as these. They look the same and the measurements are about right, but I can't be entirely sure since I bought mine locally. Anywho...2 places that sell them:
You are a wire wrapping rockstar!!
Very pretty. I especially love the burned edges of the drink me tags.
Your potion is pretty! What did you use to make it?
Oh wow! I got featured!! Squee!
Thanks for the fave on my Alice necklace!
Your profile image is beautiful! I love the rainbow hair! :)
Thanks for the fave on my Alice necklace!
Thanks for the fave on my candy heart!
Thanks for the faves!
@Tina: I found them by chance at Michaels craft store, but they come with an ugly clear rubber stopper. I switched the stopper for a cute little cork I had in a bag of assorted corks from the same store.
@Disinterred - That sounds like a great idea! I can't wait to see the result!
@Pearl B. - I feel honored to be featured in your blog, but please don't forget to give credit to the 2 women who wrote the patterns for the parts of the necklace as well. :)
Oh hey I love those things! Those were pretty popular when I was in high school but they were made of boring stamped leather. Yours is much cuter!
Oh thanks for this! I had my first pomegranate this past thanksgiving shared with me by my boyfriend's mom. She is from Thailand and she told me the Thai name for them and that it means rubies.
These are so awesome! I definitely have to try this.
Thanks for the how-to!
oh...and the word you're looking for in English is fusible interfacing I think.
What a beautiful idea! Thank you for sharing.
I used to make these for Halloween when I was little...so much fun!
I did it the same as the ice cream how to here:
but with the substitutions mentioned above ^^
Excellent! This brings back memories of elementary school where we'd do the same with small and large coffee cans and roll them back and forth on the sidewalk between 2 kids. And for the really young ones that didn't like getting their hands cold, you'd put the can on a large towel and have them take turns lifting their end of it to sort of see saw the can back and forth.
Thanks for the sweet comment. They are pretty true for a dryad like me, but I keep a chunk of amber and jet each in the bag with them just to be sure. ;)
Well that's good news. I know now which console I'll be gutting as soon as it stops working. Thanks!
@Vanna: I wish I could take the credit for the stars, but that was all nature!
@Editilla N: Thanks for linking me! Very cool blog you got going on there.
Really? Was it the thin kind or the bulky original model? And why does Playstation make such cute circuit boards anyway? I knew I liked them for a reason. ;)
I'm not really sure how long they burn because I was too anxious to post it as soon as I lit it. I don't think it's burns too long though because the "wick" burns up somewhat fast.
I never knew a ps2 controller had such cute circuitry! You have inspired me to dive into my boyfriend's stash of old video game controllers! Thanks!
I absolutely love these! Especially how they gather around the knee...too cute!
Cute cute cute! Glad to see I got you hooked on the blanket stitch like me too! :D
Oh man I love Cubeecraft! I actually have Hellboy (the comic version) and Totoro on my mantle right now! :D
Aww chicky, you don't owe me anything. You make up for it and then some with all the craft supplies you give me...not to mention all the pretty jewelry you made for me! <3
Wow! I really didn't expect this much attention for my first posted project. Thanks alot everyone! <3
Thank you thank you :D
Yeah, sorry about the lateness...I'm usually a last minute crafter. :D
And thanks for the comment!
...and I don't care that I'm much older than 3. I'd still wear that. XD
If you replace the triangle beads with red gummy bears it could be completely edible too! That's actually what I thought they were at first glance. :D
@ Carley: For being the first comment, you win a prize! Tutorial is on it's way! :D
@ Niki: Thanks for the compliment! :D
@ me: Why do I put an exclamation on everything?
I love it! *runs to button stash*
I can't wait to see these in person when I come visit you in a couple of weeks!
Aww Lisa you didn't tell me these were inspired by your brother. How sentimental of you! <3 <3 <3
Lisa!!! *hug tackle*
I used to do something similar when I was in high school, but my hands aren't steady, so I used masking tape to make perfect lines. You just add the tape after the first coat and paint the second color, removing the tape immediately (don't wait for the paint to dry first). You can do other things with the tape too like, camouflage nails, or even for a simpler way to do white tips for a French manicure.
Oh, and use a razor knife to cut the tape into shapes. Hope my input helps.
I'm so happy to see this! I'm a bit obsessed with shy-guy, and it's great to see that he's finally getting noticed these days. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
