I hate hot glue guns because of the extras left behind. For my plushies, I love fabric glue. A little thinner than Elmer's and easy to work with. Not that you need any help because you are amazingly awesome!
Aw, thank you.
I certainly appreciate the tip. The only reason I used the glue gun is because I put the lenses in there and I wasn't sure if anything else would adhere properly to the transparency film.
But I will certainly use it otherwise in the future, thank you for the tip!
Those are so adorable! I might have to borrow this idea for Valentine's Day.
Be my guest! I might have to borrow it again for Valentine's day for my husband, too.
OMG!! I love them! My best friend is getting married to my hubby's best friend...I think I found the perfect gift. Thanks for the inspiration!!
Aw, that's awesome! Tell them congrats, and you're more than welcome!
Those are so cute!
I understand what you mean about being anxious for Christmas so you could give them those. The best feeling in the world to me is when I spend so much time on making a gift for someone and get to see the look on their face when they get it and think it's awesome.
For Christmas, my brother gave me a handmade polymer clay statue of us. We've long been really close siblings, and for his 22nd birthday, I made him a little statue of the two of us holding hands, with a base that said "Best Friends."
So the gift he gave me was a sort of updated statue, and he had carved "Still Best Friends" into the base this time. When I opened it, I started bawling. And he was going on and on about "how crappy it is," but it was so NOT crappy! He made it with his HANDS, how could it ever be crappy? I'm waiting to find a display case for it so that it won't get messed up (once again, cats...). But I totally love it.
Anyway, that entire story was just to confirm what everyone here already knows: sometimes handmade gifts are the absolute best to give. Even if the recipient can tell they're handmade because they have the precious little flaws.
