    I have been quite crafty lately, and wanted to start a thread where we can post craft ideas for all things reptile. Nobody likes throwing away a good shed!

    I'll start with the ones I have done.

    Framed snake skins are super easy to do. You take two matching pieces of glass, and sandwich the skin between them, and glue it into a frame. I get cheap goodwill frames. You need one frame you like, and one extra frame you are just going to use the glass from.

    Snake skin pendants. Also super easy. I bought the glass cabochons, chains, and the pendant settings, and you just cut a piece of skin to the size of your glass cab, and a piece of white cardstock to go underneath it. The prongs of the setting just bend around the glass. You can use a screwdriver to do it.

    Crafty I'm not, but I did have the idea of laminating small pieces of shed to make bookmarks. Lol, that's all I got.

    Gee, you`re doing yourself a great injustice stating you`re not crafty, anyone who can make bits of a (wooden?)shed into bookmarks impresses me no end... Well done!!!!! ;)
