Robi Discovers Friendly Plastic

During my trek of the Great Tanned South, I took it upon myself to visit every Art Supply store I could find, give them a little business, and continue on with my life. I am pleased with my most excellent shopping skills and purchasing items unavailable to the unfortunate Canadians of the North.

One item I had my sights set on was Friendly Plastic - and at $1.17 a stick, it was too hard a bargain to pass up; so I loaded up the bottom right side of my cart with many colours, and eagerly anticipated my return home where I could learn to play with them.

I whipped out my red teflon baking sheet, brand new 'Drill Master' heat gun ($9.99 from Harbor Freight), scissors, and assortment of sticks, and brought on the heat!

!!!!Robi's Amazing Tip of the Day!!!!
Instead of trying to store my sticks in a drawer, I grabbed the spindle that comes with many document storage boxes.  I can hang the spindles and easily remove the desired strips when needed.  I am also using the spindles to organize all my embellishments and anything that has a 'hang tag' or 'hole' -- much easier than rummaging!

See? It is so easy to access the strips now!

I found my embellishments around my 
craft room; wool, beaded fringe, willow 


  1. I have been tempted to try this product but for now I will be strong and resist until I get UFO's and craft organizing done. This stuff looks great. Have fun!

  2. Wow great price. Thanks for sharing

  3. Thank you for the comments AND advice!


It's nice to get feedback.
