Fun with a used dryer sheet

Is your house overrun with used dryer sheets?

Do you ever wonder how you could put them to good use after they've softened your clothes?

Well, look no further. Thanks to the creative and crafty folks at splitcoaststampers, you can put your used dryer sheets to work jazzing up your stamped images.

Here's how:

1) Stamp an image; color if desired.
2) Run the stamped image through a Xyron, face down, so that the adhesive ends up on the design side.
3) Stick the used dryer sheet to the stamped image, right over the top. Trim the dryer sheet as needed.
4) Rub superfine glitter into the dryer sheet. The glitter will stick to the sheet for a shimmery appearance.

The glitter doesn't show in the photo, so you'll just have to trust me on this one. It's fun, foolproof, and actually somewhat amazing! We tried this technique in my glitter class last week with excellent results all around.

Next time you do laundry, give it a try!
