Decorated Clip

Here's one last shrink plastic project before I put the plastic sheets back into my storage bin for awhile.  I decorated a large metal clip with stamps from our new set, Never Forget (MC-59) and the rose wreath stamp from our cling set, Roses (CL-14).  Then I clipped it on to a notepad and added a matching pen for a perfect little gift.

One More...

One more shrink plastic project...I used small plastic condiment containers to make favor-sized baskets. 

To make the shrink plastic...start by sanding the surface of the shrink plastic with fine grade sand paper or a nail buffer block.  Stamp with a permanent ink (like Staz-On) and color with colored pencils.  Be sure to punch holes, if needed, before you shrink the plastic.

A Mini Message

Still playing with my shrink plastic...made this little hanging reminder for a special someone.  I never got around to making calendars this year, but wouldn't a mini calendar look cute in there?  hmmmmm....

Year of the Monkey Notepad and Pen

Blank kraft notepads are from Ben Franklin.  The monkey on the pen was made from shrink plastic, using the same stamp that is on the notepad.  I forgot how much fun shrink plastic is...I'll probably do a few more projects before I put it away again!

Panda Love

Combining stamps from our new set You Make Me Smile (MC-58) with our Roses Set (CL-14)...

...panda love!!

Happy New Year!!

Here's a fun way to start planning for the year ahead.  Using images from our latest cling set, MC-57 (Year of the Monkey), attach laminated images to paper clips (I used a hot glue gun to attach my images).  When you add your clip to your calendar, it looks like the monkey is hanging by its tail.  Use the clip to mark special occasions, countdowns, to hold appointment reminder cards, etc. 

Hope you all have a fun, healthy and crafty 2016!!
