Yesterday my friend Anona challenged me to make an Inro (google it).  This morning I found a little plastic bottle, a couple of red envelopes and made a start. This is a picture of inro drying.  I will decorate it once it is fully dry.  I have put a step by step with photo's on my blog if you fancy giving it a try

Cherie, that's a pretty necklace! Did you use a standard paper punch to punch out the shapes from the plastic bottles? I've had punches on my to buy eventually list for a while...

Thank you. xxx   I used my 'Bigshot die cutting machine' and a couple of dies.  Paper punches wouldn't be strong enough to punch the plastic.  The Bigshot is my best piece of crafting kit.  This is my second one and if it broke I would buy another the same day. I use it for so many things.

I have never seen trash look so good, Cherie...wow...

Hey--can you fix your signature so that the link works to your blog?  I am lazy and hate doing the copy and paste thing... Grin.

Thank you.xxx  Oh, I didn't realise that my bloglink wasn't up to date.  Will have a look at how to fix it now.x

I am using up some of the plastic flowers and shapes that I cut from a variety of plastic bottles

That is a fantastic idea. I will look out for a scrabble or domino set in the charity shop... or perhaps the local pound shop might have a cheap set that I could use to practice with.

I spent a little time yesterday beading around my bread clay brooch.  The end result is really pretty and to think it is nothing more than stale bread, a piece of cardboard and a handful of beads. I have sewn a brooch back onto this one but you could just as easily sew a small safety pin.

We don't eat it either.  I buy the cheapest white bread on offer in the supermarket.  I buy it purely to craft with.

I am really pleased that you are interested... They are really dead easy. Leave the bread out overnight to go stale. Cut the crust off and feed it to the birds. I use a food processor that I keep for crafting but you can make it by hand... it is really sticky though but does become a lovely clay when you work all the glue in. Put the stale bread into the food procsessor and squeeze in a bit of PVA glue. I can't give exact quantities as it depends how stale and thick the bread is. I reckon four medium slices to about a tablespoon of glue. If it is too sticky add more bread... if it is too dry add a bit more glue. I whizz it all up until it starts to come together in a very loose ball of sticky crumbs. Lift it out of the food processor and work it with your hands until it becomes a nice soft dough like consistency. Keep it wrapped in cling flim while you work or it will go really crumbly and dry (add more glue to rescue it) and break off small pieces at a time. Work a bit of food colouring or acrylic paint into each piece as you go along. I used some little moulds et voila....... I keep mine in the freezer.. Wrap it in cling film andd store in an old margarine tub in the freezer..................bet you try this one. xxxxxx

Details of how I put the brooches together and all sorts of utter rubbish on my blog if you are interested
