IBP: Plastic Spoon Flowers

Today's episode really was the inspiration and result of my daughter getting caught melting plastic spoons in her bedroom...the smell really caught my attention. I'm glad she tried it though because I was intrigued and had to try it out myself.  So be sure to check out the PLASTIC SPOON FLOWERS episode on My Craft Channel.

Here's the links to the blogs referenced in this episode:
Includes notes and tips on what worked and didn't work for me. 

It all started with a cute pin that compared a more expensive t-shirt from Anthropologie to one that was refashioned for a lot less. My issue with Anthropologie, besides the fact I won't spend $68 on a t-shirt is that they don't carry clothing in my size. So how awesome was this that I could take t-shirts that I bought  somewhere affordable and jazz them up to look trendy and cute.

My favorite flowers was the first one I created!

Here are the PINS that I reference in today's episode. They were a great resource in learning the process and I hope I covered everything of value in the video.

NOTE: "Charage"...I realize I said this word in place of "charing" in the episode. No need to write in, I know it's not a word!

Guest: My Awesome Daughter, Emma
I was surprised and very excited when my daughter agreed to come help me film the episode today and even a couple more fun episodes. She even helped me pick which PINS to create shows around. We more pins like these in my BOARD on Pinterested called IBP: Teen Scene. Here's some awesome still shots from the episode today.
Emma shows how to make the petals for the flowers.

Last thing worth mentioning... (and I figured putting it down here at the bottom I wouldn't get caught)... TODAY is my daughter's BIRTHDAY!! She's no fun either, for her birthday she wanted me to NOT post about this episode, but what fun would it be if I didn't embarrass her a little, right??

Be sure to join me next week me next week when I show you how to create some amazing art from some common household items you typical throw out! 

Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!
