What are the directions for #216?

Jonie Reeves said...

Looking for the directions for #216 as well.

Cousin B said...

Could you send me, or post the directions for melting procedures on #216? Thanks!

Francis Nijenhuis said...

Also Looking for explanation voor#216. Looks great!

Stephanie said...

Directions for 216 have been added. Thank you all for your interest. This post is almost 2 years old and up until now, no one has made any comments. Hope you enjoy these activities.

I tried 216 and the cups aren't flattening. Did you just press them down? I tried increasing temp to 400 and it didn't help. Thought about putting another cookie sheet on top with a weight or cast iron pan... But that didn't help, either. Are these the little 9oz cocktail cups or are these larger 12 oz-ers?

(I want to use this for a class and so I'm particularly dogged about figuring this out!)

DRE Second Unitarian said...

FWIW, I also didn't need the cooking spray - they slid right off of the aluminum foil. :)

Stephanie said...

It has been awhile, but we did them in a toaster oven. I had a ton of kids over for a summer art camp and they melted pretty quickly. I did not have to press them down. They were the smaller cups. I hope that helps. Sorry you are having trouble.

Stefani said...

For #209, the rainbow crayons, are they supposed to come out of the pill bottles?

Lisa said...

216 Again! Do we place the cup as it is shown in the photo, top side up?? I also tried this last night and it kind of half melted and even with using a spatula to push them down it did not help. I am using a table top oven outside - should I up the temperature?? Help!!!

Cyndi Shaver said...

My first try didn't flatten either. But I figured out why! They HAVE TO BE SOLO CUPS. No other brand will melt like a SOLO cup.

Jessi Little said...

For #216 I tried it for a VBS craft and it didn't work. Bought Solo brand cups and they never melted. I tried increasing the temperature and it didn't work. We even tried putting them on the grill and no such luck.

Noah's Nan said...

Could you please explain 229 - what did you use to make the coloured triangles. Thanks

Unknown said...

yes really curious about #229? how did you do the mosaic? :)

Sonia said...

What an amazing collection of creative projects!! Thank you for compiling these and sharing a brief description on how to do each one.

Was looking for some art projects for my class. Was very disappointed that I could not download any of the project instructions.
