Adventure Time Paper clips / Bookmarks

Hey guys !

Just posting to show you another new listing of mine: [link]

Paperclips

And for some reason, the Triple thick that I use to glaze it with had cracks…
whywhywhyw T__T ;;
If anyone knows the reason why it cracks, please message me…. I think I’m going to have to make a new batch if they’re sold.

Also, I haven’t made a tutorial on this because the characters are all fairly easy to make, and you just stick it on top of the paper clip so yes.

If you do want one however, please just leave a comment ^^.

Thanks for reading !

Tutorial : Adventure time in a frame

Hello my reader :D

Today’s post was meant to be on the other gaming consoles, but someone requested the chibi from my Adventure time frame, so here it is how I made the whole thing….ahaha..^^.

This tutorial is faily simple, and you can basically replace the characters with whoever you want.

——

Before you start, you’ll need some sort of photo frame. Except my one has a large gap on the inside. I’m not sure what its’ original purpose was for … ^^;;
Paint the outside with whatever you want (in my case, LSP colours), and then glaze.

Now for the characters…

—–

Materials

MaterialsFinn:

  • Light blue
  • Dark blue
  • White
  • Skin colour ( White + little bit of pink + little bit of orange)

Jake

  • Yellow

Other character (which is my friend. Use any colour you want)

  • Black
  • Skin colour
  • Dark olive green

Other

  • Brown
  • Purple
  • Light tan
  • Green
  • Hot glue gun
  • Acrylic paint

Making Finn

  • You will need three different sized blobs of clay: Light blue (largest), White (second to largest) and dark blue (smallest)
  • Make them into cylinder shapes and stick them on top of each other.
  • To make sure they all stick together seamlessly, just roll it a little bit. Not too much.
  • Using any tool, make an indent of where Finn’s face will be.
  • Then take a small blob of skin coloured clay, and fill that hole.
  • Smooth out any uneven edges.
  • Roll out a white log and cut the rounded edges – these are Finn’s ears
  • Attach and blend onto his hat.

Making Jake

  • Now for jake, separate the yellow into two. One for the body and tiny blob for details (ears and jowls)
  • For this, simply roll out a log. I placed it next to Finn to make sure they end up being around the same size.
  • Flatten, and make the bottom edge straight.
  • Attach ears and his jowls

Chibi

 

  • For the chibi , I stuck a skin coloured blob onto a rectangular blob of green
  • I flattened them together and cut out a collar from the excess green.
  • I dotted a pocket, and added some details on to the jacket.

Chicbi 2

  • For the hair, roll black clay into a long-ish strip. It needs to be long enough to wrap around the chibis’ head.
  • Cut the bottom edge of the clay so it’s straight for the bangs. (fringe)
  • Using your razor blade, make hair patterns onto it.
  • Now, cut the bangs to size. Cut it so that it wraps around the head of your chibi + the top of the head
  • Then with excess clay, roll it out again.
  • Cut it to the length you want the hair to be, and attach it onto the rest of the chibi’s head.
  • Blend away any visible edges.

LSP

  • I forgot to take picture for LSP but basically, roll out the purple into small blobs.
  • Make an outline with the blobs, fill in the middle and blend away allllll the edges. (Like the second image)
  • Then you’re done ^^

All characters

  • Here are all of the characters.
  • They have been baked, and mostly painted. You can see that Jake still needs his eyes ^^;;
  • GRass

 

  • Now for presenting them, place the three main characters you want onto a blob of green
  • Add some patterns into it using a rounded tool
  • Then take the characters out, and bake the green.
  • Once it is out of the oven, cool it and then use some glue to stick the characters back into the indents you made from pushing them in.

Background

  • Using hot glue, I stuck LSP and the waving snail onto the background piece.

Completed

 

  • Hot glue the characters into the frame, and place the background in ^^

And you’re done !

Ofc, you can replace whatever you want into this frame. The characters are all super easy to make so get creative !

I hope this was helpful ^^

More adventure time !

Hellloo my reader ^^

So about two weeks ago, it was my friend’s birthday. She LOVES adventure time, so I decided to make another themed Adventure time gift for her. (The last one I made was the Finn and Jake plush).
This is just something I made last night, (two week late gift =”= I know.. ) and I thought I’d post it on here ^^

 

AdventureTime

 

This is basically a photo frame except that it’s got a larger space inside for you to put stuff(?) in. I don’t actually know its’ purpose ahaha,,
I bought it from a hardware store for about $6.99 NZD and then painted it Lumpy space princess colours. It was going to be either purple or pink,, I’m not quite sure colour she’s meant to be.

The characters I made are Finn, Jake, the waving snail and LSP in the background. The middle one is basically her ^^
They were going to have arms and actual bodies but I decided that it would be too hard to make at 2am T__T I took a long time to think this gift out -phew-

I actually prefer this frame without that back panel. It seems like such a closed world when I put the panel in,, ah,,

On the back panel, I used those scratch on lettering sets and wrote

(Name),

Oh my glob,
Happy Lumping 17th Birthday,

Luv Cyn.

Ohoho, gotta love Lumpy space princess XD.

Here’s another angle of the frame. I was debating whether to attach Hot dog princess onto the top or not. I decided not to in the end.

Anyway, I just wanted to update you guys on what I made ^^

I seem to have not really made anything these holidays which is disappointing. When I get some more things sorted out, I’ll start my own Etsy store … I’m just still confused about shipping prices and such.

I’m starting school tomorrow and with exams, not too sure what charms I can get done. I will however, update you whenever and try my best to post tutorials and new things I have made though ^^

 

Thanks so much for reading !

I’m bacck :D

Hellooo my readers ;D

Turns out, when I was writing my last post, I was looking at the “June” calendar, so I got the dates wrong…
BUT IM BACK :D YAY !

I can finally start my holiday and crafting….

—-

One thing I’ve been working on is making an Adventure Time  series :D
My friend got me into watching it, and IT IS AWESOME. Seriously, it’s so cute…

AdventureTime

That’s what I’ve made so far, I haven’t actually made a tutorial for any of these ones but, I will be making ones for the next characters (such as slime princess :D). As you can see, painting on the details are a pain…..since these are so tiny ,,  I cant even use a brush, I’ve been using that needle tool x___x

I also made a Totoro Cake :D

TotoroCake

I was going to add a face, but then,,, I didn’t think it would look cute ,,
And the little black blobs are meant to be the soot sprites ? I was going to paint faces as well, but then though, it would be creepy…..

 

And there you go :D
Thats what I have so far, just updating you guys….
I will definitely be making more, just give me some time :D

Thanks for reading !

Getting Started : Felt

Hello hello,

Later this week, I’ll actually be making something out of felt, so I thought I’d  start it off with a “Getting started” post. Now, when I say felt, I don’t mean needle felting, I just mean making things out of felt – meaning Plushies . Oh yes.

Basic equipment

  • 1. Felt. Obviously, you’ll need this before you start making ANY craft.
    My friend actually gave me a chunk off her supplies after she came back from HK. I imagine the felt there are also way cheaper than NZ ಠ_ಠ. It looks nice here because I haven’t actually used these yet. I still have a lot of A4 size squares that still need to be used. 
  • 2. Thread. Another obvious one, as it’s used to sew your creation together. You can also use embroidery thread – it definitely looks better because its more thick and outlines your creation better.
  • 3. Needles. Yet another essential. I think it’s pretty self explanatory.
  • 4. Pins. Extremely helpful as it help keeps your creation pieces in place as you sew. Also used to pin the template/patten to the felt so you can cut accurately.
  • 5.These are optional. These are bits and pieces that I use to make my felt creations into keychains.
  • 6. Scissors. Fabric scissors are best, but a pair of nice sharp scissors work well too. Obviously used to cut out your fabric + pattern.

Closer look at equipmentHere is a closer look at the items ^^^

A lot of times, I just draw up my own patterns free hand. I don’t really have any nice books in NZ to cut out templates from. There are a lot on the web, but the really good ones, I find are in the asian felt books where they have the cutest plushies of food or whatever.

Adventure time Fin and Jake plush
Here is an example of what I make out of felt. This is Jake and Finn from Adventure time + papercrafts I printed off from it’s website.
This was for my friend’s secret santa, and I stayed up ALL night making it  T__T.

A lot of the times, I make up things as I go so it does take me a while to really get it right (unless I already have instructions + pattern). Depending on how many different pieces there are on a plushie, the longer it takes. Even the really small ones, phewww (we’re talking hours).  My scanner is broken right now, so for my upcoming tutorials, I don’t know if I can provide the pattern. I will as soon as it is fixed though.
