i should add

I’m running a canned campaign in a sci-fi setting

Totally not-shady NPC: I’ll need you to retrieve my secret cargo from the abandoned spaceship, but it’s very private, so don’t look inside–

Player: Is it a girl in a box?

NPC: …What?

Player: This is a sci-fi story, and there’s a box you don’t want us to look into. There’s only ever one way that ends, and it’s always with a girl stuffed into a box.

Other Player: Hey, we don’t even know how big it is. It could just be a cigar box.

First Player: Okay, you’re right. It could be a bunch of sex toys. How big is the box?

NPC: It’s… uh… six feet long by three feet wide by three feet deep…

First Player: Ugh. Okay, fine. Somebody pack a crowbar and a spare set of women’s clothing. We need to go get this girl out of her box.

Sole: *appreciate companion* 

I had a bad day today and want to draw these dudes blush

So um is it just me or is Chris Evans only ever complimented when it comes to Cap? Like plenty of people mention him when they’re talking about Marvel, and everyone oohs and ahhs over him physically but I very rarely see people talk about how damn NICE this man is!! So, here’s a ~long overdue~ appreciation post for Mr Christoper Robert Evans💖💖 (ft adorable photo with Dodger)

• He loves Dodger so so much and literally does countdowns till he can see him again

• He is the loveliest human when with children and goes out of his way to give them the best experience ever

• Two words: Charity!! Work!! This man will not let an opportunity to help others slip past

• oh my god his twitter activity, have you seen how excited he is about space? planets? stars? I relate.

• also the earth in general if someone offered him a role as the next David Attenborough you just know he’d be set for the rest of his life

• speaking of twitter, he always makes sure to call out politicians and those who intimidate others via social media and actively supports important causes 

• he is so open about his struggle with anxiety and let’s people know about it because he knows it will help others despite being a very private person

• he’s started taking work because he wants to, and he’s finally back on Broadway for Lobby Hero and he’s THRIVING

• he’s dedicated af, Before We Go? Yeah that was his directorial debut and he went above and beyond, even learning to play the trumpet for the movie (and as a brass player I can say that shit is not easy)

• I know I said he loves kids but I feel like this needs to be reiterated because have you heard him talk about his nephew??? “I don’t wike it”

• the casts he works with are so so so complimentary of him, no one has an issue with him and they adore him as much as we do

• he once sent a text to the rest of the Avengers cast that just read “assemble” because he wanted them to meet up for a night out tell me that isn’t how we’d all react if we were cast in a movie

• he unashamedly supports his fav sports teams like there’s no tomorrow and honesty that’s just so endearing

• his laugh. everyone knows it, everyone loves it. he literally cannot control himself and his face scrunches up and he falls back it’s like watching a small child having the best day of his life

• did you see him on Ellen with Elizabeth Olsen?? That boy can dance and was 100% up for the game

• he. can. tap dance.

• he has the most animated face possible and you can tell exactly how he’s feeling and it just floors me sometimes okay

• Fantastic Four may not be everyone’s fav film but you can’t fault Chris’ performance he was hilarious and honestly made me love Johnny so much

• he doesn’t take himself super seriously! not another teen movie was…. interesting but Chris went for it and as a parody it’s pretty damn good

• speaking of, What’s Your Number anyone?? He was so amazingly dorky in it and I love that film, I appreciate the fact he’s done rom coms because it just shows his range so well - he’s naturally so funny

• he was a musical theatre kid and his coworkers have told so many stories about him singing show tunes on set

• HOW COULD I FORGET the Gifted promo tour??? His interactions with McKenna were so wholesome omg

• McKenna literally said he was made of jelly beans do you hear me!!! jelly beans!!!!

• I’m sure there’s so much more but honestly my hearts so full I don’t think I can continue

So basically, conclusion is that Chris Evans is too precious for this world and we should all start talking more about how wonderful a human he is. I know I’m just as guilty for fan-girling over Cap and that shoulder-waist ratio but just never forget that the role would mean nothing if it weren’t for the type of man filling those star-spangled boots

I love you charms!! They are so cute!! As an artist trying to get started on selling my own products, i was wondering if i could ask how you make your packaging look so nice? I would love to learn how to make my stuff look so professional.

Oh me gosh, you have no idea how much that means to me… I’m emotional now! ( ・ᴗ・̥̥̥ ) Thank you very much lovely! ( ◜◒◝ )♡ I apologize in advanced for taking forever to answer your wonderful ask. You caught me right in the middle of prepping for a convention 。(*^▽^*)ゞ

Anywhosies~ Here’s a small tutorial on how I do my packaging for charms:

First, make your design. I sometimes sketch out the design on paper before I move onto Photoshop. Depending on how big you want your packaging to be, is how big you want your design to be. I prefer to use 3x5in and always work under a 300dpi/resolution or bigger. Make sure you are able to find baggies with your dimensions before you design. I’ll talk about this further into this tutorial.

Tip: Make your width at least .25in smaller! Some baggies are a couple of millimeters smaller from the actual width. I keep forgetting to fix this little detail thus why you see the width as 3in instead of 2.75in.

The design is really up to you. You can have a theme going on per set, per charm, or you can even just use your logo as the design for every charm and make your life easier lol  There’s no rules to follow, just have fun and design away!

Tip: Don’t overdue your designs though, you want the charm to be the main focus. Something simple yet fun and or elegant will work. Don’t be afraid to google examples of other people’s designs. That will give you an idea and get you going.

Save your designs! Save them as both a JPG and PS file (or as the software you are using).

Be organized! If you plan on having multiple designs or even make lots more charms in the future, name them so they are easier to find. Your packaging designs can even have their own folder or sub folder if needed.

Setting up. Open any wordpad or word processor of your choice and add your design. Depending on how big your design is, you’ll be able to fit more or less. 

Print a test page. Print your design on your everyday normal paper just to check that everything looks okay! If your printer is like mine, it will be a troll and sometimes print a bit crooked, but don’t worry! Since they’ll be cut, it doesn’t affect your designs in any way.

Now let’s print…

Ta-daaaa! Here are my designs that I printed on the cardstock I fell in love with. The cardstock I use is called Astroparche Cover Stock and it’s from the brand, Neenah. I love the natural look it has–it’s not white, so ye be warned that the colors will have a small slight tint of yellow when printing. The cardstock is also thick enough for my printer to use and sturdy enough for my charms. You can find this cardstock on Amazon, but I was lucky enough to find it at my local Office Depot!

Tip: Photo paper can also be used if you so prefer. Again, whatever makes you happy and works best for you. 

Get your handy dandy paper cutter ready…

Cut, cut, cut! Cut out all your designs with your paper cutter. I don’t suggest using scissors unless you trust your hand enough that it won’t mess up and cut straight! If you don’t have a paper cutter, note that you most certainly do not need to buy the huge guillotine type. There’s small ones that can be used and can even be taken with you to conventions! The one I use is small and cute and has been with me for three years and the extra blade that came with it has not been used yet. Amazing~

Punch, punch, punch! Time to get your hole puncher and punch them little holes. I actually have a special hole puncher with a 3mm hole, but you can definitely use a regular 6mm hole puncher. How far down you want your hole to be is up to you.

Tip: If you want to get fancy, you can even buy hole punchers that have cute hole designs! Like stars or hearts ♡ ☆ ♡ ☆

Baggies!!! So, remember how I said to make sure to find baggies with the dimensions you plan to use before designing? This is only because of the rare chance you use certain dimensions that there’s no baggies for. Always double check!

Anyways, when buying baggies, make sure that you go half and inch (or more) above your height so you can create a tab to fold back and tape your baggie shut. You can also find baggies that already have adhesive! It’s just a matter of what you like and what works for you. Maybe you want to get creative and use a cute sticker or washi tape to close your baggie, who knows! Some people even buy baggies with hang tabs to hang them for display when they’re tabling in conventions.

“But Dee, where do I find baggies??”

*squishes your cheeks and whispers*

Ebay… Ebay is your best friend. Search for clear cello/poly bags ( ̄▽ ̄*)

Almost there…

Setting up! Once you have your charms built and ready to go, it’s time to package them and use your new super duper amazing designs! For this, we’ll be using washi tape since it doesn’t leave any residue and it’s easier to peel off. Any washi tape will do, it doesn’t matter! I tend to rip off about 10-20 pieces at a time to have them ready to go. It makes things easier on my end.

For cellphone straps: Loop the strap inside the hole and align your charm. Once you are happy, tape the strap with the washi tape.

For key chains: Yes, it works just as well! But we’ll be needing ribbon, 3mm wide ribbon to be exact. Cut about 2in and loop one end inside the split ring while bringing the other end above. Bring both ends of the ribbon into the hole and align your charm. Once you are happy, tape the ribbon. You should now have your charm cutely hanging from the ribbon~

All you gotta do now is bag ‘em, seal ‘em, and you are ready to go! Look at you–you did it! I’m so proud of you ( ・ᴗ・̥̥̥ )

I hope this helps you and anyone else looking to start making their own unique packaging for their cute charms~ ❤ (ɔˆз(ˆ⌣ˆc)
