Default Testimonial -how craft supplies have saved my bacon

Today I peeled a nametag sticker off of my beautiful paid-too-much-for-it-purse from Coldwater Creek and discovered the the bronze finish came off with the sticker as well. I was sick about it and instantly started thinking about how I could fix it. Ta Dah! Craft supplies to the rescue! I rubbed some bronze colored rub on color that I bought years ago and rarely use. It fixed it perfectly (insert happy sigh of relief *here*).

This thread may make us feel better about all of the money we spend on supplies! Tell us how craft supplies have saved your bacon!

I used a couple of different sized round punches and some cardstock to make a custom fit cover for the hole in the cabinet above my microwave (where the cord goes through to plug in the microwave). I made kind of a cardstock "donut" which fits around the cord and covers the hole. My handyman was very impressed.

I used my cropadile and jumbo eyelets to add extra holes to some belts for a friend who lost a bunch of weight.

Crop-a-Dile for additional holes on belt

Heat tool to help mold something DH used to fix a toilet

Black sharpie to periodiclly hide a teensy tiny bleach splatter on a favorite sweater (lasts 2-3 washings then fades enough for me to notice)

I have used gold embossing powder on costume jewelery that has tarnished.

And the crop-a-dile is a must for growing boys who need belts that don't quite fit, repunched shoelace holes and other general holes. I have to keep it hidden.

I used my crop-a-dile to make eyelets on the back of a Halloween costume for a lace-up back when the dress turned out to be too small to be zipped up.

Crystal Effects to glue back a spoon holder handle (2-3 years ago now), glue together top to ceramic cannister. As said above, black marker to cover scuff marks on shoes. All I can think of right now.

i used just the right color SU! marker to cover a couple scratchs on a brand new leather purse!

my heart was broken when i discovered that the drawer i used at work to store my purse in was scratching my new purse GASP!

so i covered the screw head with tape, and used the marker to touch up the scratch on the purse... SIGH!!!

the markers are great for bleach splatters on clothes too! what a range of colors to choose from!

Red line tape to hold my pants hem. It lasts thru several washings!

Hubby loves my CAD. Recently he added rivets to his tool pouch that was hanging the wrong way.

I know I have glued lots of stuff with the mass quantities and types of glue I own!

My 12 year old daughter is building the Eiffel Tower from popsicle sticks for a science project. We used numerous things from my craft room.

- grid paper to draw templates for the various panels of the tower
- rubber scissors to cut popsicle sticks (you knew those scissors were originally bonsai trimmers, right?)
- twine for temporary bracing of pieces while gluing
- binder clips for clamping things together

and more that I can't remember at the moment.

Like others, I've used metallic marker pen to refresh the finish on a pair of shoes -- for me it was an expensive pair of Mephisto shoes with a silver metallic finish. I was sick when I discovered I scuffed the finish off BOTH toes when I innocently squatted down to pull some weeds. What a relief to find a silver marker pen in my stash that is almost a perfect match for the color and shine of the finish on the shoes. The pen is now located in my shoe closet and identified as a repair tool.

Another much used craft product is my varied collection of glue dots and super sticky tape. On a regular basis, DH seems to have some weird repair project that needs fixing and he knows I'm likely to have something in my craft drawer to solve the problem.

I also use my craft forceps and specialty pliers and "pokey" tools for different repair projects around the house. It's nice to know I have a nice selection to choose from!

I was with a friend when she got a flat tire. The spare was stored under the van and wouldn't come down because the retainer was rusted. We got the little hammer out of the crafter's tool kit and I was able to bang it loose with that.

I used Crystal Effects and white stazon to patch a ding in my new cabinet doors, but the stazon has since gotten dirty. I need to try and fix it again.

A small circle punch, some black card stock and a glue dot made a great substitute for a missing button cover for my son's concert tuxedo. The band director, who is a stickler for details, never even noticed!

Our puppy got her dog tag caught on our new burber carpet and when she got up, she pulled, unlooped and stripped a 6" long piece out of it :O I managed to scrunch and shmoosh the fibre back in the bare spot with Zip Dry glue. We can barely tell where the carpet got wrecked and it is still holding

I used foam tape to adhere a curtain rod onto a door. Worked until DH got it hung up with screws.
I've used pretty much everything to help my kids with their school projects.
DH used my scrap area last night to mount his uniform medals. He used my adhesive and some plastic stuff. Fabric glue and some popsicle sticks and binder clips until the glue set. He also used a good majority of my tools. He though my Tonic guillotine cutter was "cool", LOL!

Just the other day I used some of that artist's tape (mine was blue, like painter's tape), that I use when I tape my watercolor paper down before wetting. I have very senstitive skin and I hate labels in my clothing. I spend a lot of time cutting them out. Well, put on a blouse and the label, even though it had already been cut out, felt as if it was eating my skin. I tore off a piece of that tape and put it over the label and put the shirt right back on. Regular white making tape would stay on longer, but I grabbed what I could find the quickest. In college, my roommate's hem came out in her slacks and she used making tape to tape it back. It lasted through many washings and dryings by machine! Who knew!? I think they even sell such a tape in the sewing stores called Rescue Tape. Not sure I spelled it correctly. I think they made it cute and put a Q in it!

I have used Copic to cover bleach spot on jeans. Heat gun to thaw out frozen electric horse waterer (My old one now lives in the tool box in barn). Gold pens to mark power supply cords (I have tons I don't know what they belong to) New rule in our house to mark them. Of course all my supplies have been used to do school projects, even DD's best friend came out to use my stuff for a college project! Oh and the cut off pieces of rubber work as extra spacers for things. I know there are more but that's all I can think of right now.

I have a pendant necklace that the center raised "embellishment" came off. I used an extra large glue dot to reattach it and it has been fine ever since. That was a couple of years ago and it's still holding strong.

A while back, my DH had to put on his dress uniform (Navy) for an appointment with the General at his duty station. When he went to tie his shoes, we discovered the cat had chewed completely through one of the laces and of course, we had no replacements. While he was going ballistic because he's NEVER late, I ran to my "fibers/ribbons" bin and came up with some black SU hemp twine. Worked like a charm and no one noticed anything amiss. Saved the cat's (and my) bacon big time!

It's moments like this that make our "collecting" worthwhile! After this I'm betting your DH will refrain from making any comments about all the stuff you have for your hobby. By the way, please extend my thanks to him for his service to our country. (Vets day is tomorrow, but any day is the right day to thank our servicemembers.)

Nestabilities helped me finish off a wallpaper job! Sounds weird, but we live in a very old house -127 years and counting- and the switches in our kitchen are the old push button kind. The switch plate looked crappy but would be difficult to replace, so I was going to cover it with a scrap of wallpaper. But how to cut the little holes in the middle and have it look nice? I was getting frustrated, but had a sudden ah-hah moment and cut the circles with an itty bitty nestability circle. Success, and it impressed hubby!

DH used my heat gun to remove a stubborn advertising wrap on his work truck. You know, the vinyl used to cover vehicles? Anyway, he was amazed that my little craft tool could work on his big ol' truck!

i know this is about practical uses but i do want to mention that after a death in the family...the use of my supplies to make thank you cards was healing...as many say "cheaper than therapy"...so in that sense it saved my bacon...or at least my sanity

and my dh is forever borrowing my stuff for his projects

My daughter had to make a skeleton out of found items at home for her Grade 12 anatomy class - so out came all of the crafting supplies she could find. My favourite part? The vertebra on the spinal column made out of a long strip of adhesive rhinestones!! We called him Bling Boy!

I used the 3-D Zots (aka booger dots - LOL) to reattach the frame around my washer and dryer hoses and plug ins in the wall. (can you picture that?). Anyway I didn't want to crack the frame since its plastic with screws, nor did I want to put holes in the wallpaper. It kept falling forward driving me nuts. I had an a-ha moment and it worked like a charm. I smiled that day!

My husband just mentioned the other day that we should cover the scratches my pooch put in our sleigh bed several years back (he's gone now). He used to scrape the side of the bed to wake us up when he had to go out. I used furniture dye sticks but they don't last very long. I think I'm going to try either my distress or dye inks. Worth a try.
