DIY Wall Art Using Sequins

8 Materials
1 Day
Last year, I made embroidery ornaments for Christmas using the wood burning tool and this year I wanted to experiment some other way of using the tool. A long time ago, I saw a project on the internet where they used a page protector and wood burning tool instead of using fuse tool to create compartments in the page protector. The idea was on my ideas-to-try list for long and I finally tried it. Here is how you can use the idea to make a wall art using sequins.

Write the words or design you want in a paper. Keep the paper under a page protector and secure the page protector with tape on the cutting mat
 Heat the wood burning tool. Use the mini flow point nib and slowly swipe along the lines you see through the page protector to fuse the two layers of plastic.Leave one side of the letter to stuff the sequins inside.
I got best results when the tool is used within few minutes of switching on. I switched the tool off in between so that it doesn't heat up too much. If you have a temperature controlled wood burning tool then you can set it to low temperature.
Pour some sequins and use any pointy tool like the tip of the pencil to stuff the sequins inside the fused letter. Then close the letter following the same steps as step 2. Dumb the remaining sequins out of the page protector. 

Repeat step 2 and 3 to complete the remaining letters. Check the link below to learn how to complete the wall art.
