Plastic Bumpers


Sharp craft knife or razor blade

Tiny pictures cut from a magazine

I bought the plastic bumpers at Rite-Aid and I used my HBS catalog to cut out pictures of tiny flowers.


Step One:

Cut out one of the little bumpers from the package.


Step Two:

Use a sharp craft knife or scizzors to cut the bumper in half.

Step Three:

Cut out a tiny picture from a magazine


Step Four:

Take half of a bumper and carefully place it over your cut out.


The back of the bumper has adhesive so don't stick it down until you're sure about where you want it.


Trim the edges around the bumper and you're finished!


Experiment with different pictures and have fun!
