They make all kinds of products to make your home “right”.
You can pretty much expect many more posts from me with these products because once we move to Washington state, I’ll be using these most of these tools to make our new house our cozy home!
I got to make-and-take a cookbook holder out of an acrylic sheet using a HomeRight Heat Gun. It was pretty easy to do!
My mind immediately started spinning – – – could I roast marshmallows with it?
(I haven’t tried that yet but it’s on my to-do list LOL)
However, I did know for a fact that I needed to have one at home for other projects.
Painting, crafting, shaping, removing adhesives, bonding, making gift baskets….
I am constantly putting together marshmallow gift baskets to donate at shows and events. I also give them away here to my lovely readers.
Every Cake Camp, I donate a big gift basket filled with marshmallows for the raffle at the banquet.
The raffle ticket sales help the California Cake Club raise funds for scholarships to sugar artists wanting to invest in their art.
I went out to find the biggest basket I could find.
Then I filled it with lots of KRAFT Foods products like, of course, Jet-Puffed Marshmallows, Kraft Caramels and Baker’s Chocolate.
I found this perfect size shrink wrap bag at Walmart.
I placed my basket inside of it and tied the top with twine. In the past I would have left it that way and just decorated it with ribbon bows….
But now I had a fabulous heat gun to help me shrink the wrap into a nice and snug fit around the basket. It will keep my contents from moving around and the bag corners from sticking out on the sides!
This was my first time shrinking wrap so I got started by turning on the Heat Gun at it’s lowest setting. I wanted to make sure I didn’t burn through my wrap or put too much heat on the temperature sensitive contents.
I pushed up the control tab to the second setting and kept an eye on the digital thermometer. The bag began shrinking at 220°F degrees. I quickly and steadily moved the Heat Gun around the areas that I wanted to shrink.
I loved how the sides shrunk just enough to hug the basket base and handle.
Before I had to fold and tuck the excess wrap on the sides and then tape them down. It looked so ugly!
