Well the kids and I thought we would give our machine it’s maiden job: making end-of-year presents for the kids’ teachers. What I didn’t expect was the children’s absolute joy at playing with it. In fact, we went through half a bulk bag of blanks; the kids were so excited. In the end they narrowed them down to their two favorite pendants.
It really is that easy to use. The promotional video is right! Even my 7 and 9 year olds did it easily without much guidance. They did the embossing, dapping and color polishing all by themselves!
They were so proud of the outcomes. We then made the pendants into lovely necklaces by adding some Gilder’s Paste for a touch of color and putting them on leather cord with a few additional dangly bits.
What do you think? Hopefully their teachers like them!
