Decided to use basic die-cut chipboard shapes which can create hanging baubles or card embellishments. I also pre-punched a hole for the hanging ones.
So that everyone can do their own colour combinations of UTEE, I used the "craft sheet in the melt pot" method.
I placed a wood block under the back of the melt pot to lift it up slightly, and make it level (otherwise the UTEE will just run backwards off the shape).
A piece of craft sheet is cut to fit the melt pot; then add the chipboard shape and sprinkle UTEE.
I did colour the chipboard shape first with Distress Ink. And to make the coloured UTEE go further, sprinkle on clear UTEE first.
When melted, carefully lift the craft sheet out - I use two pairs of tweezers. Then, I immediately stamped into it, to create fab texture. Leave to cool a bit, then peel off the stamp.
Here's all the shapes I ended up with.
Add glitter, mica powders, ribbon - anything desired! For the baubles I stuck 2 shapes back to back.
Here are some of my finished baubles and cards.

Happy tinsel time!
