empty CD tin from Archivers

cut to fit paper, glued on..tear a coordinating paper for top layer, rub-on letters
Ribbon is wrapped around the lid (and glued under a piece of paper on the inside of the lid)
Dragonfly was a rusty bronze colored Christmas ornament from Pier 1 (painted with same MM paint and sprinkled a little glitter into the wet paint)
Prima flower (touched up with paint to match)

Can I ask what you used to make this??? I LOVE it!! I think I will try to make 2 for my girls for our Sept. trip.

Thanks!!!!!

I posted on the Virtual Scrapbook thread yesterday, post #322, with a link to both autograph books that I've completed. (they're like mirror images). If you follow the link in that post to the DIS Photo Gallery you can see both books. When you click on the photos there is a description below of the materials used. I'll included them here too, because I didn't realize I had posted on two threads.

Photo Gallery

Andrea’s autograph book
• Dollar Tree 6.25"x4.75" spiral sports autograph book covered with:
• EK Success Mickey and Stripes (DPMP006) and Dots (DPMP003) papers,
• EK Success Disney sticker (DJTM004),
• EK Success "Sticko" 1/2" Tiny Tags (SPTAGT01), 1/2" Epoxy Circles (SPTTYEP01),
• Stickerpotamus Sticker Minis Deep Red block ABC's (SP-LMA-02P),
• Sandylion Autographs sticker (PDSCB43)
• Bobbins star print ribbon (90041-067)

Samantha’s autograph book
• Dollar Tree 6.25"x4.75" spiral sports autograph book covered with:
• EK Success Mickey thick stripe (DPMP001) and Polka Dots (DPMP004) papers,
• EK Success Wishes do Come True stickers (DJTCM15),
• EK Success "Sticko" 1/2" Tiny Tags (SPTAGT01), 1/2" Epoxy Circles (SPTTYEP01),
• Making Memories Chunky Waterslide ABC's (25179),
• Jolee's Boutique Mickey Mouse dimensional sticker(DJBM004)
• Bobbins bubbles print ribbon (90041-014)

Carefully remove the spiral from the book. The entire book was wrapped in plastic so I opened the plastic just enough to pull out the covers and leave the paper clumped together. You could clip the paper with a black binder clip so the pages stay lined up and don't separate.

I used double stick tape along the edges of the paper to attach. Cut the paper to length, about an inch longer to wrap around the cover. The red book I only allowed about 1/4" and the edges keep popping up, but on the blue book I made the pieces longer and they are staying down. Use the tape on both the edge that will stick to the front and again on the edge that wraps around to the inside. Eventually I added the matching paper to the inside of the cover to hide the raw edges, with that piece going from edge to edge.

On the blue book I used some of those mounting squares that are on a roll in box (I forget which brand and the actual name) to adhere the ribbon. Spacing them about 1/2" apart was easier than trying to use the double-sided tape reel on a piece of ribbon the didn't lay flat and still.

I used a drapery hook with a sharp point (the kind used to hang pinch-pleat drapes), or use a nail, to re-open the holes for the spiral. Punch from the top side, especially for the ribbon. We had a slight disaster with the blue book where it frayed terribly and I made a repair to replace a portion of the ribbon.
Replace the spiral from the left side, not the right (lesson learned) as this will thread from the top side through the book.

Hi everyone! I've been reading the DIS forums more often now that I'm busy planning our Christmas WDW vacation! I just found this Arts and Crafts forum today. I love all of the artwork posted in this thread and I thought I'd post some of mine, too! I'm a quilter. I make photo quilts and am starting to make pin quilts for all of my Disney pin collections. Here are a few...







This last one lets me display all of my Halloween Pin Pursuit pins and some vacation photos. I'm working on a Pooh pin quilt now...

Thanks! I've been quilting for over 15 years, but I'm still learning new things all the time! I design all of my quilts on the computer, so I can see what they are going to look like before I ever cut any fabric. I love seeing what everyone does with their creativity! This is a great forum!

Thanks again!

Thank you! I have always loved to draw and I began taking private lessons about 5 months ago. All of the drawings I posted are from before I began my lessons.

I hope it's okay for me to post here, I've never posted on this board before.

Here's a corset [with complete boning] that I made for homecoming this year, but it never got worn. My friends and I decided to not go.



And a close up since you can't really see the detail:




And this is just for fun. Our art teacher called these "Love Pots."

<-- I drew that. My handiwork is in every post I make!

I do digital paintings in Photoshop. I do a pencil sketch first, which I scan and reopen in Photoshop, then I "paint" it in just like you would on a canvas, completely losing the original sketch. Upside: no messy cleanup, it's easy to erase mistakes, and you can get some really cool effects if you want to. Downside: no "original" hard piece of art, since it's all digital. but they print nice at least, I'm thinking of doing a Disney-themed picture and having them printed on T-shirts for our upcoming trip.

That would be really neat to have your artwork on T-shirts. Would love to see a picture of those.
