Friendly Plastic A gift for Mummy

I got some friendly Plastic from the SSEC and decided to let Cara and Connel My Grandchildren make a braclet for Mummy to go with the card they had made.

They chose the colours I cut the strips and used the heat gun, (while explaing to Connel that it is not a hair dryer and very hot)
When the plastic was hot enough I let them use the comb on it to get the pattern. We then wrapped it around a glass along with the heat resistance sheet and left it to cool.

We then made a box I showed them how to use the ultimate Pro, Cara made the base, Connel made the lid. they where both amazed with what they ahd made and really enjoyed it and want to come back next week to make more cards.

They are both away home now covered in glitter and trying to keep their secret present making quiet.
Connel is just about bursting at the seems it was so funny watching them leave with my daughter Cara was telling Connel to be quiet and not to tell mummy about the gift. I had already told her a little of what they had been doing without giving too much away.

I think they will both be regular visitors to my carft room

It's lovely, I bet Mum will think so too. I've had some of the plastic for a couple of years now, but never got round to using it, maybe I'll dig it out.
