So, like I said, I cut my flowers from the Slice. I made two flowers at 11/2" and one at 1". I used the Seasons cartridge that came with the Slice. I also used some patterned papers. This is a great way to use up those paper scraps. I heated up my Melting Pot with clear UTEE & added my flower. I used the purple tweezers that I got with the UTEE tools to take the flower out of the pot. It doesn't melt even though it's plastic. I set it one my non stick craft mat from Ranger. I did this with all three flowers. I had kinds shaped the petals of the flowers first.
As you can see, they aren't perfect when they come out of the melting pot. I use some scissors to cut of anything I don't want. You can really see the extra piece on the red flower. Then I heat up the flowers with my heat tool to smooth out any weird spots. I then used my heat tool to make the center of the first flower sticky and added the second flower to it. Then I do the same with the smallest flower. Then I heated the center of the smallest flower to add a hinestone that I colored with a Copic marker.
Here's the finished flower. I really love how they end up!
This is a view of the template I use to line up my Slice. I use a piece of white paper to cut out the shapes I want to use. This piece shows the 1", 11/2" & 2" flowers. I use the template with the piece of paper I want to cut from. One I decide where I want to cut, I lay it down on the glass mat lining up the white template to where it was when I first cut out the shape. Then I remove the template leaving the paper exactaly where I want it. I just love my new llittle tool! JIL
