I love making little Shrink Plastic charms! Today I am using the Kuretake PlaBan Starter Bag B. There are 3 different sets, each with different designs. In the bag you get the shrink plastic, a marker and design sheet. This way you can trace a design onto the plastic, cut it out and melt it in your toaster oven. In the video you can see it all happening in real time.
Alternatively, you can stamp onto the plastic with Archival Ink, turn it over and colour it using Alcohol Based Markers, cut it our and shrink it!
If you want to make charms, be sure to punch a hole before melting it. I used a 1/4″ circle punch.
On the next episode I am featuring Seth Apter’s Collection with Spellbinders!
The Heidi Swapp Lightbox was one of my favourite items from CHA 2016! I finally found them available on Scrapbook.com so I ordered 1, plus all of the add ons! Then, before receiving it Michaels Canada got them and I used my coupons and bought 1 for Gemma and 1 for Mark! Michaels didn’t have the same selection that was available at Scrapbook.com.
In the winter we love to make Snow Globes, so I thought this Summer I would make Glitter Globes! I got a small jar and a figure that fit inside the jar. I then cut 2 circular pieces of Foam Core, using a Pen Blade #11, that fit inside the lid. I used Multi-Medium to glue them together. I painted the foam white and adhered the Mini Flowers to it. This can be found at a craft store in the models or train section. I put it aside to dry.
Once dry I adhered my figure to the base using Heavy Multi-Medium. My figures were heavier and I wanted to make sure they would stay. I then let it dry overnight.
I chose some glitter for my jar. I used both the fine and chunky glitter. Start with a bit, close up your jar and see how much more you want to add. If you add too much you may cover your figure. Keep adding glitter until you are happy!
Then line them up in a window so the glitter catches the sun!
On the next episode I am featuring Heidi Swapp’s Lightbox!
This Summer I am going to be featuring some projects you can have fun with! First up is this Heidi Swapp Marquee Heart! I love decorating Heidi’s Marquee Collection. There are so many things you can do! For my heart I started by painting the inside. Even though I was adding the flowers, you still see some of the inside area.
Next I wanted to add Heidi’s Glitter around the edge. I find the easiest way to do this is to use paint the same colour as your glitter. Paint an area and while it is wet, add the glitter. Keep moving around your shape, painting and adding glitter. A fair warning, this glitter gets everywhere.
I let this completely dry. While it was drying I started stacking my flowers. I found it easiest to add my bulbs in the middle of the flowers, then put them onto the heart. Then once the entire heart was filled in, I flipped it over and added in the lights.
