Make a dried flower wall decorationWritten by Janice Wee
Fancy a dried flower wall hanging?
I used to make those years ago. For this, you need
- a paper bowl or plastic bowl that you can cut easily with a pair of scissors.
- Florist foam
- 2 sheets of very thick cardboard each size of frame you want
- Glue that can stick to foam and bowl and cardboard.
- Dried flowers
- Very strong thick string or fishing line to hang wall hanging.
Now cut bowl in half.
Plan out your frame. What shape do you want it to be?
It has to be substantially larger than that half bowl as you need to make room for frame.
Cut both sheets of cardboard into shape of your chosen frame
1 sheet would be backing inside, other would be just frame.
Make 2 holes in backing that would be hidden behind frame. Tie string through both holds on outer side of backing. This will be used to hang final dried flower wall hanging.
Tippi™ Fingertip Grips™ Put Traction and Comfort In ReachWritten by John Jordan
-Scrapbook, fabric and archival hobbyists gain better dexterity from new grip tool
BELLEVUE, WA - VWP, Inc. today announced introduction of their new grip tool to scrapbooking, fabric, and archival hobbyist market. Tippi™ Fingertip Grips™ are a revolutionary finger sheath that enhances finger performance for wearer. They are reusable, archival-safe, and fingerprint-, acid-, and PVC-free. The product was unveiled during 2005 CHA Summer Convention at Craft and Hobby Association Fair in Chicago, Illinois. VWP, Inc. President Philip Lorenzo said, "We are quite excited to bring this product to paper and fabric craft enthusiasts. Tippi Fingertip Grips are made expressly for this market and will help hobbyists get more enjoyment from what they love to do."
Crafters find tool surprisingly comfortable, yet barely noticeable on hand. Tippi™ Fingertip Grips™ have a set of paddles that connect and grip paper, plastic or other materials with desirable traction. Their unique design also enables wearer to maintain a high degree of tactile sensitivity to feel and grip even intricate or delicate materials. Thin and strong, they are like an athletic shoe for finger and are made from a non-latex material. Its secure grip and ergonomic hinge design works to decrease stress to hand that are incurred from repeated motions. The sheathing is also thin enough to not impede other motions or manipulation of tools. Ventilation holes and an open design on top make tool breathable and easy to use, even for people with long fingernails.
