Dictionary Lamp - A Bit of Geekery at Home

On: Thursday, May 5, 2011

I wasn't able to find any tutorial on creating this one but I loved the idea. Look:
  1. A dictionary page for the shade;
  2. A round-bottomed flask for the stand.

The main thing is to remember that a light bulb can get really hot while on, so don't let it be close to the paper.

Candy Wrappers Bag

Even the picky fashionistas should appreciate this: the bag made of candy wrappers look colorful, bright and actually cool.

I don't think it will be solid enough to sustain the active usage (you won't be able to stuff it with all sorts of useless things you may like having in your handbag) but it will make you the center of any party!

Magazine Bowl

Ok, today's project seems to take some serious effort. And it looks like it doesn't have too many uses but it is still fun!

Imagine how much you and your kids may enjoy the process of folding and then arranging and gluing magazine pages.
