Re: How to Make a Magazine Reed Box

I made large beads this way and am make "beaded curtains" from them. I think they'd be fun and funky to add a visual block to my laundry room.

Re: Crafting with VHS Tapes

Cute idea. Looks like you can use the tape the same way you use raffia (although obviously not as colorful.) could you destroy a copy of The Princess Bride!?? It's one of the best movies ever! (I watch it ever time it comes on TV, sometimes several times in one week! Never get tired of it!) There must be some other videos more worthy of destroying? (I have some Jane Fonda work out tapes around here somewhere!)

Re: How to Make a Mosaic with Your Old Plastic

I made a couple of bracelets out of my cut up credit cards -- one where I used the little squares as dangling charms, another where I just linked the squares together with jump rings. But this is a great idea and I'm going to try it. I've been saving old cc for years and because I just KNEW someday there'd be another project for them!

Also, many stores have colorful gift cards which you can just take. (They are worthless until you pay to load them -- well, worthless to anyone who's not a crafter!)
