KURETAKE: US & CANADA DT Member!

I am so thrilled and excited to be on the KURETAKE ZIG Design Team!! In your tool kit somewhere I am sure you have a ZIG Writer pen, right? These folks manufacture those and many other types of writing instruments for years!


Today, I thought I'd share a project created with ZIG Memory System® Millennium 01 Pure Black. I love how well I can doodle with this on shrink plastic!

Jewel Stones Charms by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Shrink Plastic: PolyShrink (White); Marker: KURETAKE ZIG (ZIG Memory System Millennium 01 Pure Black); Jump Ring: Advantus (Tim Holtz); Cord: Canvas Corp.; Die: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S5-098 Jewels Stones); Tool: We R Memory Keepers (Crop A Dile) and Darice (Heating Tool)


I was watching the Presidential Debate while I was doodling...I think you know my state of mind at the time was! LOL!!! Sorry about the bad lighting.


Then using my Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine, I cut/embossed the plastic with a few of S5-098 Jewel Stones dies. Then I punched holes on top of the die cuts and used my heating tool to shrink. To create some cute charms to use for a future project :)


Thanks for letting me share my news and a little project to go with!
