Flower craft I will say she takes forever to explain her technique so you may want to speed up the playback using the Settings gearwheel.
Enjoy

Maybe check with a local school and/or library for takers?

I don't know, but I'm thinking of taping a bunch of 'em together to use as a shower curtain. Or maybe I can cut a hole in my roof and make a skylight. The possibilities are endless

;)

But it's nice to know that some boxers out there really give a sheet!

Maybe the school's art teacher could use them. Art teachers save everything.

"Maybe the school's art teacher could use them. Art teachers save everything"

got me thinking ...

I could probably make very lightweight 'stained glass' shades for my front windows ....

Our windows face the woods and/or reservoir on three sides of the house - only if you look out the front windows do you see the road and one other house.

I've jokingly said that if I had the money, I'd install stained glass windows in the front of the house so we could really feel away from it all.

Hmm .... what would I use to make the different colors? Sharpies?

Could you paint them with glass paint? You know the kind you use to make "faux" stained glass.

What's all this about transparency if you are all contacting each other privately?

Emily . . . Emily, they're talking about transparencies - see through sheets of plastic that you can write on with special markers. A letterboxer has a bunch of them to share. No one is being secret about this.

I'm jealous! Transparencies seem to be hard to get. At least when I went into the local Staples and asked for them the young kid who was helping me looked at me like I had two heads. He kept taking the laminating sleeves off the rack and asking "Are you sure these aren't what you're looking for?"

I used these on my glasswing butterfly:

I liked that you could emboss on them because they are heat-resistant, although I didn't end up doing that. The cheapest price is an "add on" item, so you'd need to be ordering other stuff to get that price.
