Brilliant really. I think it would be neat with those shaped punches to make sequins you could crochet or bead into things, I'll have to try that.

Ooh tell me how, I'll go through about two of the bottles today with these milk obsessed munchkins!  Cheesy

But then I'd have so many sequins, and not much to do with them lol!

I cannot tell you, I never tried it, I thought you had some experiences with spray finishing...
Oh yes, I will have lots of them, but I already got some ideas where to use them...

Innovative! I really like it!
As for making wholes, I think they would be great for non-textile crafting as well, attaching them with the help of a hot glue gun could be a good idea.

Actually, as I wrote, it was Molendrix's idea... Because she shared that idea, I thought it's OK to try it and write it here, with link to her. Really visit her site, she's great craftster, very imaginative concerning techniques in my opinion. And she's also very kind, ready to answer you if you ask her by e-mail about something.
Father also got this idea about hot glue gun, but I'm not sure whether we have it. Wink But anyone who has it surely could try it.

I never would have thought of that myself but I am so glad someone did because everyone needs sequins...or maybe that is just me...thanks for the idea.

Ooh this is fantastic. I just tried it out and it worked great, my only problem is I have a ton and not a clue what to use them for.
