I had some difficulty using my embossing heat tool because it would blow the pieces. Queen & Company answered my email quickly. I decided on the oven method. Success, they work so quickly in the oven. See before and after.
This kit is THE BOMB!! You can virtually make any kind of shaker toppings with this kit!! So much fun!!
I can't believe the value of this kit! The amount and variety of colors of the shrink material is AMAZING! And then the dies. Seriously, it is 24 different shapes to make any mix you can imagine for your shaker cards! I'm in love! You can make some serious individualized cards for your family and friends! The colors that are included in the kit, obliviously work with all the papers designed by Q &C but the colors will also work with many of your other papers and scraps. I order this kit last Wednesday and got it on SATURDAY and I live across the country from them plus I live in a rural area where I have to go to the post office and get my packages after they put a notice in the box! I know I got very lucky with the post service in this crazy time, which Q&C has no control of, but it definitely proves the dedication that Q&C has to ship out their orders out as fast as they can! Due to time factor, I only made two shrink shapes just because I have always been mesmerize by shrinky plastic! No problems what so ever. Just like that! Love the fact I can just use a heat gun! Woo Hoo! This kit is so awesome people! Don't hesitate to buy it. It is the same quality of product that Q&C puts out! Thank you Queen & Company for this new way to create and play!
So. Much. FUN!!! My kit arrived swiftly (thanks Queen & Co. for lightning fast fulfillment!) and I couldn't wait to play with it! :)
The possibilities are literally ENDLESS with this amazing kit. The kit dies are perfectly sized so that the end results are great for shaker cards or as little embellishments. I plan to put some of my "charms" in pocket pages as embellishments.
The shrinktastic material die cuts wonderfully! They work especially well with the included dies, but will work with any die (or punch that can cut thicker material). You get 20 different colors of 6x8 sheets. If you do use other dies you'll want to use ones that are sized comparable to the ones in the kit...I had some tiny dies, quite a bit smaller than the kit ones, and when I heat them they almost disappeared! If your recipient can't identify the shape you so carefully created, then you know you need to use a die that's a little bigger. Haha
My kit arrived sooner than expected :) so I wasn't prepared with a little tin to use during the heating process. I did have a disposable loaf tin in the pantry and that worked just fine. I used a small stylus to hold the charms while heating them; the only other tools I needed were a die cutting machine and a heat gun. I made so many different shapes this afternoon, trying out all the pretty colors! I can't recommend this kit enough!!
