It all started when I met Michelle. I was working at Paper Muse on Monday, and she came in. She has a shop near Olympia and was in the area, so she popped in to take a look. When she paid for her purchases, she had the CUTEST little clutch! She said it was melted plastic and that she had done a tutorial on her blog about it.
I was intigued...so I checked it out. Well, I decided right then I HAD to try it out. Melting plastic??? Oooo, it was fun! The only bag I had that wasn't ugly was a silver one, so I went with it. And, I decided to make a Moo card holder, instead of a clutch.
Here's the finished project, which took less than an hour, total! I used a scrap of vintage fabric I had been hoarding, and lined it with the melted silver plastic. Trimmed it with hot pink ribbon and little blue buttons. Cute, no?
Well, then I was on a roll and made the two above. Seriously...for those off you who, like me, suffer from the sad and debilitating syndrome called something like "if-I-cant-see-immediate-results-forget-it-I'm-not-doin'-it-itis", this project took hardly any time at all! Once I got going, it took maybe 20 minutes apiece. I also, decided to forgo the cool but kinda unnecessary step of the melted plastic liner. But, do go check out the tutorial and give it a try! It's fun!
