Other uses for Friendly Plastic

So what can you do with Friendly Plastic when you've made all the jewelry you can possibly wear or give away or sell? I think it's a great way to enhance anything else.

I went walking through Hobby Lobby and saw this snowflake. 40% off, so less than $1.00 Not bad as it was.....

But look at the difference when I simply too scraps of pieces of Friendly Plastic and melted them together, then cut out a star for the center of the snowflake. Look closely. You can see some of Jana's Fracture n Fusion, some marbled pieces, and who know what else. It all came out of my "trash" bin.

And yes, you could hang this in the window, or on your tree....but I think it gets a definite "wow" when I simply layer it on top of paper:

Or how about a star on a star on a star?

And I think you can see that as you start to change backgrounds, you can get an even different look:

I simply used a griddle, laid my junk pieces on top of each other in a mish-mash pattern, let them all melt down together, tapped them to get the lumps out, and then used a cookie cutter to cut out the star.

And since this is not something I'm going to be wearing, I just used a really thick layer of Glossy Accents on top. Now, this is just a great way to use up your scraps.....and even kids can have fun doing this!
