I made this one for my collegue. You like?

I made these a few weeks months ago. But I’ve been a bit slack with updates. Very hard to find a few mintues for posting from the pc, not just my htc.

I know the original link where I got the idea from is more kids art, but I wanted to make these myself. I can’t remember ever making them at school either. I had some nice scrapbook, wrapping and crepe paper, ribbon and a glue gun. I also have a huge stash of toilet paper rolls.

This isn’t an official tutorial, but I’ll share my pics of what I did and how they came out.

What I didn’t take pics of: I glue-ginned  the decorated tubes together keeping their bases level. Then traced the base shape onto scrap cardboard from a box. Cut out the new base and glue to the bottom of the tubes – again I used my glue gun.

Eish!! Completely forgot its Earthhour tonight.

Basically you pledge to take a stand against global warning, by switching off lights at 8:30pm for an hour. Light candles, show your kids shadowpictures on the wall; get romantic; gaze at the moon and stars; or sit around a bonfire – like we’re gonna do.

I felt that I needed a few changes to my 101 Things in 1001 Days list. Someof them are due to logistic reaons (lack of a better word); others are cause I have new intersts and the items were on the list in the first place and a filler. I will try and keep true to the category though i.e replace a Gaming one with a Gaming one etc.

  • 64.    Finish Rise of Legends The Vinci — first campaign changed toFinish Borderlandscause I can’t find my Rise of Legends disc, and I got this one sitting on my desktop. And Henk reckons I should play something other than Sims 2+3. This is also harder than my old goal since I don’t particularly like shooter games that much – but the graphics intrugue me and I get to play a female character too.
  • 7.    Visit Augrabiese Watervalle change to: Find 300 Geocaches(11/300); Cause there are caches there too. But the original reason I put this up there is so that we can travel more and explore our country – and since Augrabiese Watervalle is close enough for a weekend getaway, it got added. So in the spirit of still going there, I made the goal harder by saying that I/we must find 300 caches.

This is what happens when you write posts ahead and save the drafts before finishing. I sorta lost my thread. But I made the changes; now let us see if the get completed.
