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)
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!!!
