Good Monday morning to you all!
I was playing around with my hot glue gun yesterday, because I had seen a pin on Pinterest about how a crafter had purchased a super heavy duty glue gun in order to make her own stencils. And that just sounded like a challenge to me! I wondered if I could do the same thing with my standard, inexpensive hot glue gun.
I created some random shapes on my teflon craft sheet, making sure the lines of glue were thick enough so as not to tear apart. When they cooled down, I just peeled them up from the sheet. I thought it was a very easy process!
I laid it onto a #8 manila tag and spritzed it with some Vibrant Turquoise ink spray.
I laid it in the other direction and spritzed with some Fresh Lime ink spray.
I thought it worked extremely well! I just wiped it clean with a baby wipe and stored all of my new toys in a baggie.
I went on to use my Dotted Flowers stencil and my Mini Chicken Wire stencil with some Broken China and some Black Soot Distress inks. I also stamped a flower and the "art" from a Studio 490 stamp set (Wildflower Art). Then I added some flowers, some die cut leaves, some enamel dots, a line of sequins, and some twine and ribbon. A simple but fun tag!
I'm so glad I took on that challenge! Don't you love it when a project turns out just the way you hoped it would?
Enjoy your week, y'all! Happy crafting!
