I’ve been wanting a case for my Kindle, but I didn’t really like any of the ones they make, and I’m no good at sewing and that kind of thing, so I decided to hollow out a book using directions

TAD 28: Finnish star

I bought one of these made of metal a few years ago with the idea of learning how to make them.  Learning with paper seemed like the way to go. I probably should have made this for tomorrow’s thing so

Day 27: Repurposed Playing Cards

Today I removed the coating and most of the ink from the faces of some playing cards, using acetone. (I say most of the ink because there were traces left behind that the acetone couldn’t seem to do anything about.)
