I made a purse with duct tape using these instructions:

first you need

Scissors.
Ruler.
Duct tape of assorted colors.
Cardboard. ( 12 by 4 inches or whatever you want )

Directions

Work on a large flat surface. Begin by making “panels.” Cut six strips of duct tape, each measuring 12 inches long. Lay one strip horizontally sticky side up. Lay another alongside it, with * inch overlapping. Attach the remaining four strips in the same fashion. Cut six more strips and lay them sticky side down on top of and perpendicular to on top of the first six strips. Repeat the process two more times so that you have a total of three panels. Cut two 4-inch-wide strips from the third panel; these will be the sides of your purse. Cover the cardboard with tape. Neatly connect all the pieces from the inside and outside of the bag with tape. Use the remaining pieces from the third panel to make the handles. Make a separate panel and attach as a pocket for the front of the purse. Add colored tape trim to decorate.

TIPS AND VARIATIONS: For a more colorful bag, before adding the pocket, carefully add rows of colored tape over the bag. Make other items to match, such as a wallet, bracelet or hat.

Got boring margarita,wine. etc. glasses? Create designs with this cheap idea!

You will need;

2 clear-glass margarita glasses,
Glass etching cream,
Frosted glass paints,
Fabric,
White craft glue,
Assorted brushes,
Pencil and scissors.

Directions

Thoroughly wash the glasses. Take one glass and add a thick layer of etching cream on the outside in your desired pattern. Repeat the process for the next glass.

Let the etching cream react for several minutes, according to package directions. Rinse off the cream with water and leave the glasses to completely dry. For a more etched look, you can repeat the process.

Paint accents on the glasses with the frosted paint.

Set the glasses on top of the fabric, trace the shape with the pencil and cut out.

Apply a thin layer of white glue to the underside of the base and press the fabric (right side up) on it. Remember to smooth out any bubbles with your fingers. The glue will dry clear and the fabric will show through.

Other options: Use the same process to decorate other glasses, such martini, beer, wine or brandy glasses. Stencils can be used in place of freehand patterns.

For the busy girl on the go or just the unorganised, Screen Jewelry Hangers are ideal for a temporary and unforgettable resting spot.


Need:
1 open back picture frame (31/2 inches by 5 inches or 4 inches by 6 inches)
Wire mesh or screen
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
2 eyehole screws
2 pieces of silk ribbon (12 inches long each)
Optional: Acrylic paints, fabric, brushes, picture for background (optional)


Directions for a hanging holder: Paint and embellish the frame as desired. Measure and cut a piece of screen to fit inside the frame. Adhere it to the inner borders with hot glue.

Attach the eyehole screws to the top of the frame. Thread the ribbon through the hole and gather the two ends at the top. Repeat for the other eyehole.

Tie off the ribbon at the top for hanging. If you would like a decorative jewelry hanger only for fishhook earrings, glue a colorful picture to the back of the frame so it will show through the screen. For all types of earrings, leave the back open for easy use.

VARIATIONS: Use a standing frame to use on a tabletop, or create your own frame from basswood. For a more portable version, line one side of a small box with screen so it can be securely closed.
