Hello All,

One 10 pack gives me 3 large snowmen and one single stick snowman.  So for 4 projects its around $11.00, which comes to 2.75 each project. Now if you have never purchased any kind of craft supplies that how much it would cost you to make.

New Instagram Account

Hey everyone!

Just a quick update…
I have created a new crafty Instagram account. I know I’m bit slow getting all Insta-up Apps there are out there. But know it’s done.

I am really enjoying sharing  my crafts with you, especially when I can’t put everything on my blog.  what I do tend to do on my Instagram account is post all the crafts you don’t see on this blog. I mostly share photos of what I am working on there. I hope that makes sense? I should have listened to my sisters and did that a lot sooner, but then again I’m not that hip to what my little sisters do.

I hope my tagline is easy to remember, my username is uniquedesignsbymonica  click on the link to get you there!  If you are a crafter your self I usually follow you back. I’m always looking for new inspirations 🙂

Stay crafty!

Can You Make Your Own Shrinky Dinks?

Tags

Hello All,

Well I always wanted to make my own Shrinky Dinks. But…. Uhhhgg,  I will need to go buy them online or at Diaso for $1.50 for one sheet. Who need the aggravation of going outside. And if you know me I’m all about the free.

So I went on to YouTube to see “if” it was possible to make my own charm. And sure enough it is. I sifted through a few videos and this one I like the best.




Next I went to online and found an image I liked.

Pinkie_20Pie_original

Now I’m a firm believer of NOT stealing. I am not selling this, I just wanted to see if what “Jordan Sphinx” was saying was true. Can you use #6 Plastic in a confection oven to make a your own Shrinky Dinks? And the answer is Yes… yes you can.

The instruction were simple and the tips he gave on his YouTube video where spot on. So after cutting up my #6 plastic Chinese Food container. This is what I came out with.

Not to shabby right? Well… now that I have made this I’m looking all over the house for #6 plastic. But alas this little tidbit is all I could fine. I need to tell my hubby to order some more take out. hahahah!!! But in all seriousness Jordan Sphinx thanks for the help.
