Re: Magazine Reed Box

Great ideas!

@ 7sibs: The idea of using a coffee table intrigues me because I have wanted to do mosaic tile on mine, but my better half thinks it will make it too heavy. Reeds are a great idea to use instead!

Re: Bend to Conquer: How to Make a Beautiful Paper Lantern

As always, love your work, Jeff!

I made a lot of these out of parchment, (24!) with different flower designs, for an outdoor party in Maine. When the day turned out to be very windy, I was despairing, but we taped up some of the open parts, shortened the whole design a bit by cutting vertical flaps in the bottom section and taping them to the bottom of the votive holders. Also weighted the votive holders with sand, and everyone was oohing and aahing. Only two went out, on a regular basis, so I moved them into a more wind-protected spot.

Thanks for all your craftiness!

This is so great, and I need a new bed for my kitty. Jeffrey, your invention never ceases to amaze me. Thanks!

Re: How to Make a Valentine from an Onion

Jeffrey,

As usual, your imagination and ingenuity amaze me. Thanks so much for such a great idea. You have inspired me to rummage throughout the entire house for materials.

When are you going to write a book?
