Fun Stuff!!!

Raise your hand if you played with Shrinky Dinks as a kid! (Me, Me!!! I did!) Well now you can play again with them as an adult! I punched out circles with my large Marvy punch and stamped my image with Staz on ink. I used my teeny hole punch for 2 holes to recreate a "button." Then you can either bake them the old fashioned way....in the oven, or use your heat gun. (Heat gun is my preference because it is much faster!) Did you notice the little yellow feather sticking out of the button? (Did I go a bit overboard with the chick theme? LOL!)
Here's another question for you....how many of you have flock but it just sits there unused? You thought you needed EVERY color at the time you bought them, but now they just collect dust!? Here are 3 ways I used flock on this LO. The first was with the title. I used Red Line sticky sheets. I ran them through my Sizzix machine to create the letter. Peel the red tape off and sprinkle with flock. (Both sides of the letters are sticky, so once you have sprinkled off the excess flock, peel the backing off and attach to your LO). Now I have soft, touchable title. I also took a plain white brad, covered the top with glue, then sprinkled the flock over it.
This cute chipboard shape was included in the Picnic Basket Add-on kit. I also covered him with glue and sprinkled flock on him.
Here is my finished LO! It is now cute AND "cuddly!"

And just so you know, this entire LO was from the Picnic Basket kit and Picnic Basket Add on kit. With the exception of the title, vintage yellow buttons and photo anchor. (There are only 7 kits left......Grab one quick!)

I LOVE the little feather! :D And now I'm feeling the need to break out my flock! Great examples! :D

That feather is such a cool little touch! I have never "flocked" and amazingly I don't own any....but your example is making me think I might need to bite the bullet! Great job Michele!
