Hi, welcome to Crafster Quickies where we’re showing you fast, easy and great looking project you can make in just a matter of minutes. My name is Pam and today I’m taking you down memory lane with plastic fuse bids.
These little guys have been around forever and make great crafts for any age. Coasters, picture frames and key chain’s are just a few projects you can make with this. But as always, the possibilities are endless. The materials you’ll need today are plastic fuse bids, this come in different varieties. You can get them individually in kits or in a 0:50 tab. You can get them at craft stores, at toy stores or online.
The next items you’ll need are pegboards. These come in a ray of different sizes and shapes. Today, I’m using a basic square pegboard. Ironing sheet, these are another item you can pick up at crafts stores. These are specific to ironing fuse plastic bids. Patterns—you can these patterns on line with our eight bit patterns or you can use different books.
Somehow 1:19 you’ll need are glue, tweezers and iron. If you want to do something fancier, you can use different finding such as magnets or key chains. Or if you want to make a coaster, little felt feet. Let’s clear the table and get started. Warning, you will be using a hot iron with this project. Try not to burn yourself and as always, have adult supervision with children.
Today I’m going to make a coaster for our bar. My husband pours a pretty stiff drink and this coasters going to service a warning for my friends and family. It’s a skull and cross bones.
The first thing I’m going to do is pre-heat my iron to medium heat. Next, I’m going to take my pattern that I found online in my skull and cross bones and start to make my pattern. I’m using this tweezers because it’s a little bit easier because sometimes you’re fingers get a little fat. Now I’m going to count out five bids for the skull and then place five bids down. Now I’m just going to put my finishing touches on the last two bids and we’re ready to iron.
I’ve unfolded my ironing paper and now I’m going to take my design. Be very careful so you don’t spill your bids and put it in the middle of the paper and fold the paper over. Next you get your pre-heated iron and iron your coaster. Go in circular motions for about 10 to 20 seconds. You’ll see the bids fusing together. There, it’s all fused together.
Now I’m going to flip it over in iron the other side. Take the tray out, place the paper back and iron the other side so it fuses together. Again, about 10 or 20 seconds, there it’s all fuse together and now I have a cute coaster. But it’s not quite finished yet. I have to put on the feet. So I’m taking these little felt feet and placing them on my coaster on all four corners and there you have a coaster.
Another thing you can make is a picture frame. I just got a new puppy so I’m going to make a picture frame for Pete. The steps are exactly the same only you’re going to live the center open. Now to make the picture frame, what I did was I cut out a piece of construction paper on the back and glued it except for the top so I can make a little pocket. Tehn I slip the picture in and because I’m going to put this on refrigerator, I just clued a little magnet on the back. Don’t forget to let the glue dry before you do all this.
So here’s my picture frame that I made for Pete but you can make it your pets, your kids, or you significant other. Plastic fuse bids are wonderful project that the whole family can do, they make a great rainy day activity and wonderful gifts for friends.
This is Pam from Crafsters Quikies saying see you next time.
