Anyway, onto this week's post. My new job requires me to participate in Bingo at least once a month. I really have never played Bingo much outside of at the fair, (because my youngest LOVES it) and some in grade school. Before I got my job I had never set foot inside of our local Bingo Hall. After you have purchased your Bingo package you are required to sign your receipt and keep it visible at all times so if you do "bingo" the attendant has proof of your purchase. (This way you can't cheat???). Anyway, many of the "regular" players have cute little receipt holders they have purchased or made themselves so I decided to make one for myself. You all know how much I love elephants and they are supposed to be lucky too, so I used one that hubby had bought me a few years ago.
I created a mold of it using my Amazing Molding Putty from this elephant:
and here is my mold
here is an idea of how it looks
When I took the elephant out of the mold it wasn't
completely set up yet, so I was able to add a piece
of wire into it's back using my paper piercer to
start the hold and then gently pushed the wire into it
after it completely set up the wire becomes a permanent part of
the elephant and then I painted it with black acrylic paint to give it an onyx look
I attached an alligator clip to the wire
here is another view of the elephant
and now my receipt is attached and I can go play Bingo
I hope I've inspired you to create something with the Amazing Mold Putty cuz the possibilities are endless. If you'd like to see more of my creations, click here and I will see you again soon.
