    Giant Paper Flower

    I love this idea so much that I would want to make permanent bouquets to decorate a room with instead of just for a 1 day party or a holiday season, but do you know of a company that sells fade resistant card stock & where it is sold (online or a US store)? I get a few hours of bright sun in my room almost everyday. I don't expect it to last 5 years, but I've seen some pricy cardstock & a large swag would take time to make, so I'd rather have to get rid of it when it becomes impossible to get the dust off instead of how kids Christmas paper decorations are faded before January. Thanks!

    Touch Screen Gloves

    A few questions: 1.Does sewing the thread in a sort of messy way make the screen detect the gloves better? I'm certainly not trying to be critical because you did an Awesome (& extremely neat) job sewing the gloves in the exact size & shape of your hands on a sewing machine (something I couldn't do myself). I was wondering if it was intentional?2. Personally, I would have to start of with plain premade gloves, but was wondering if I sewed the conductive thread into a small pattern, like a heart or a smilie face would the gloves still work? 3. Have you seen conductive thread, that still works well, in any other colors than silver?4. Do these gloves still work through the typical "shatter proof" screen protectors found everywhere? 5.***IMPORTANT: If I accidentally touc...

Or is this thread sharp like thin wire that you can "crochet" into chain mail jewelery? Sorry, I'm having a hard time imagining what this thread is like. I've lost at least 1 glove out of 3 pairs of touch screen gloves that cost $25 or more within a few weeks of receiving them as Christmas gifts. So, I haven't received any gloves, hats or scarves as gifts in several years, plus these are washable for flu season. Your Instructable is going to save me so much money-And frostbitten fingers! Thanks!!!
