Here I am with another project for CYC Stamps. Today I'm going to show you 2 versions of the same project. My project this time is using the little bookworm. My bible school class has dubbed him Billy-Bob the Bookworm. Too cute! So, I decided to make some jewelry with shrink plastic.
Now, as cute as this is, I made it better by adding ribbon bows to the earrings
and did a bit of weaving on the bracelet.
I think one of my son's teachers will love these!
Now, for a few notes. If you have never worked with shrink plastic - read ALL the instructions. I have found over the years that if I am careful I can use my heat gun instead of the oven holding the piece in place with my long neck piercing tool. But don't get too close. You will have to use a heat safe surface and don't set this down on top of your stamping mat, it will warp (unfortunately I know this first hand)! And don't worry if the shape isn't exactly perfect - it probably won't be - it is art after all. Most of all, be creative - use your shaped punches. You'll love the results!
That's it for today everyone but, stop back on Saturday as I have another project to share with you using CYC Stamps that will make another great teacher gift! T T F N!
