Happy Friday. I used to love Fridays…cause it meant the weekend…but I’m a mom. so now it doesn’t quite mean the same! But THIS friday I have a super fun craft for you–plus some totally fun new tools!
I just use a sharpie and sketch out where I want to cut….
okay…the Florcraft® StyroCutter® Plus is literally the coolest thing ever!!! It heats up super fast and melts right through! I made a video….(it took me 6 minutes to cut it out (I sped the video up for you though!)
like buttah guys…like buttah! In the video I’m kinda moving it back and forth…and being sped up it looks like I’m sawing it. But you just let the cutter glide through. I move it to keep the boredom away! It’s seriously the coolest thing–I feel like I can do all the fancy stuff that people can do with wood…with half the cost and half the time!!!
Then I just cut fabric to size.
I just wrapped it like a present….(QUICK TIP: HOT glue will melt the Foam…cause it’s HOT…so I put it on the fabric first..waited a couple seconds for it to cool before pressing it onto the Floracraft® foam sheets
The flamingo is three parts…the legs are pieced together. Then the body. And then the head. I made the wing using scraps..I’m kinda torn if I like them or not!!! and of course I cut out STAND…I was originally going to wrap that in fabric…but all the curves made it a bit more tricky! So instead I opted for..
You can apply it to Floracraft® foam sheets–for a SMOOTH FINISH (thus the title!) I don’t know if you have ever tried painting foam sheets just plain…It looks so porous and it would take more patience than I possess to get it all covered! This makes it looks so pro! I added some paint…and glitter…and polka dots…all things girlie and cute.
(fyi: my other daughter has requested a giant zebra for her wall!! lol!)
