OK, it’s time for a confession. Raise your hand if the Cookie cutter stamps in the Holiday mini are your favorite? I can honestly say that I love them both!. The little scarecrow is my most favorite!! I can’t make enough things with him.
Now, I first need to say that this was NOT my original idea. I actually saw it on Facebook. These ladies were going on about something called Shrinky Dinks and I. WAS. WOWED! They are so much fun to play with. The idea is that you stamp on the paper, color it and then cut it out. Next you put it into an oven and watch them shrink all the way to almost nothing. It’s such a fun process. I spent a couple hours just sitting by my oven staring in.
On the left is the original size you cut out with the punch. On the right is the size they shrink down to. Make sure when you color them you use an alcohol based marker.
Allow them some time to dry so that things don’t smear as well.
Now some of you may be thinking, “That’s great Lynda, but what do I do with them?” Well you can make all sorts of things with them. I made earrings.
Totally cute, I know!! Wait until you see the Santa ones…………..
Well that’s all for today. Our next project will be out on Monday and believe me, you don’t want to miss it.
Thanks for stopping by.
