I use mine for markers for my DnD game that I run.

That is - energetic.
Whenever I look at my scraps, nothing like what you did comes to mind.
Great job.

Excellent scrap usage! I just think up miniature designs and hand them out like candy… well, within reason.

“hand them out like candy”…

That is one way to get fiber.

I got nothin’.

But the holes in my scrap keep getting bigger as I use bits to make small pieces of other things.

Your way is better. Nice piece!

Just… wow. It looks like one of those scrap metal sculptures, which is to say, awesome work. Are you going to continue making fish as you make more scrap? Eventually have an entire school :fish:

I’ve made… a lot of hold down pins :laughing:

That is really cool! I have a hug box of scraps right now. I need to come up with something.

My use pales in comparison to what @mark14 has created, but still…scraps = what I am calling Chameleon earrings. The colored pieces in all of these can be snapped in and out so other colors can be used…making one pair of earrings into many pairs. Took me a while with some of the pieces to get them to fit tightly, but once done they can be replicated infinite times. I posted photos of a couple of these some time ago, but I became possessed. :crazy_face: :slightly_smiling_face:

Love the combination of intricate details such as the gears with the organic fish with all the scales. Very nice conception and design…not even to mention the assembly. Nice work!

I don’t see anything silly about the fish or ear rings. I have tried to get acrylic to fit tightly and it is not easy. Your creativity is impressive. Thanks for posting. :smiley:

Where the material works I do a nice dragon relief sculpture on one side and the Etsy shop name Dragons Treasure on the reverse. Sort of a business card folk will not toss out.

Every time you make a tabbed or crossed fingers box you also get tabbed or cross-fingered scrap and that can make nice grippy file handles :upside_down_face:
