These were fun to make because you get quick results.
You'll need cups like this, they are soft whitish plastic. We tried the clear plastic cups - FAIL, they don't melt. These were from the dollar store.
Preheat your oven to 350f, they didn't have any smell to them while melting
Draw designs on your cups with PERMANENT marker, we used Sharpies. Then I placed them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment,
I didn't want them to stick and they never did. We spinkled a little glitter on the top of a few of them, some of the glitter stuck as it melted but some also came off when we touched them, but a girls gotta have a little bling.
I have to mention, I did have a 13 year old boy make a couple of these before he became too cool and left to go hang with his friends :)
You can't do anything wrong, I think they all looked great!
15 seconds in the oven and they look like this.
They were done in under 1 minute and could be handled within 15 seconds. Cup cools down fast but remember the cookie sheet remains hot. While still warm from oven you can press down on them to make them a little more flat if you wish - we liked them a little wonky, like us!
Aren't they pretty? I thik the more detail the prettier
they are but anything works.
Now, you could easily punch holes in them, hang them
use them as gift tags or decorations
but these girls wanted to keep them like this to give to friends.
Have fun !
