Repurpose Scentsy Clam Shells

As many of you already know, I’m a Scentsy Independent Consultant!  Today I wanted to share some ideas I’ve had on reusing Scentsy clam shells!  I get so many of these and I love finding ways to reuse them!!! 
What you’ll need:
-Empty clam shell
-Glue (Elmers & hot glue)
-Scrapbooking Paper
-Scissors
-Googly Eyes
-Pipe Cleaners
-Magnets
For the first project, I made a critter out of the lid portion of the clam shell. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the shape of the lid.  Using Elmer’s glue I secured the paper to the lid, then added the eyes and nose.  I used a marker to make the mouth.  Using a hot glue gun, I secured the pipe cleaner to the back of lid and also secured the magnet. I used corners of the scrapbooking paper to create the ears and glued them to the outer portion of the lid!   
When I initially used the magnets on the back of the lid, I used Styrofoam to lift the magnet out of the lid a little, but I later found it was easier to glue the magnet directly to the lid. 
This next project is great for my fellow Scentsy Consultants!  I cut the lid off of old clam shells and added my label with my information.  It’s a great play on a business card!  I just glued a magnet on the back.  I use it as a bag stuffer when packaging orders and my customers love it!  
This isn’t so much a project, but sharing an idea!  I love using the empty wax portion of the clam shell as a pallet for paints!  It comes in handy with all the crafting and painting I’ve been doing lately!!! 
The last idea is kinda fun!  I took a clam shell and glued a piece of scrapbook paper on the front.  I then cut eight slips of paper and tucked them into each section.  On the pieces of paper I wrote a small object, for example “penny” or “paper clip” to create a scavenger hunt.  Obviously you can write what ever you heart desires on the slips of paper, I was trying to think of little things that would fit into the little compartments!  
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!  I’d love to hear any other suggestions on how to reuse the clam shells!!! Happy Crafting Y’all!!!
