Day five Growing in Unity
To do this project you need cups that have a recycle 6 symbol. I got mine at Dollar general. You also need sharpie markers, a hole punch, embroidery thread, a foil covered cookie sheet and an oven.
I took the cup and colored with multicolored sharpie markers and punched a hole in side. Learned the hard way that you have to punch first before you shrink the cup. Then turn oven on to broil setting. Place cup on foil covered cookie sheet. Then place in oven. These photos you will show you it melting
After it melted I stamped the butterfly on the ornament using black stazon ink.
Tried it again with different patterns.
I put embroidery thread through the holes and wrote the date.
Melt one cup at a time. Multiple cups didn’t melt evenly.
Sometimes I had to push down on the cups to make them flatten completely.
Melt them with the lip of the cup touching the cookie sheet. They stick together if you try them the other way.
It is easy enough that kids can do this project. My 6 year old and 3 year old grandkids made some at Thanksgiving time.
