Custom Accents From the Oven

I have a house with littles and we love art.  Lots of art.  My littles really don't understand that not all kids have an art room let alone one as well stocked as ours.  There are many days filled with projects around here and typically the only problem is finding a project for everyone at the same time.  One of the go-to projects that will keep then occupied for a decent chunk of time is Shrinky Dinks.  We love Shrinky Dinks.  I have packs and packs of shrink plastic on the shelves.  The next challenge was to create a custom accent using shrink plastic.  This is something I do from time to time, but while working on this project I broke out the good stuff.  Honestly, I forgot I had it until the move a couple of weeks ago.  It's amazing the things that you "remember" when you're moving it all! 

Back to the challenge...I decided to try adding glitter to the finished product, something I'm not sure I've ever done.  I made a snowflake and a tree and then realized they were the perfect size to add to tags.  Here they are.

And once again, I'll need more before I can use these, but for today this is it.  I especially love the reindeer one.  They pair with the Tiny Treats images really well.

I'm also entering this in the Tag Challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons and the Holiday Tag Challenge at Moxie Fab World.

I hope you like what I've done.
