Have you ever saved something and had no idea why? This happens to me all the time. A few months back, I received a package in the mail and it included some circular packaging. Usually packages have that waded wrapping paper or packing peanuts. When I saw these pieces I knew I had to save them. Why and for what though?
I made an ATG stand years ago. When I purchased a new gun, I did not have a place to store it. I thought about making a new stand, but I wanted something quick. After thinking and getting tired of knocking it over because I would sit it upside down, I remembered the Styrofoam!
I traced the bottom of the ATG Gun and cut the Styrofoam with an Exacto Knife. Since the gun has a slight angle, the inside is not cut straight across. Once the hole was satisfactory, I measured the Styrofoam and cut a strip out of the DCWV Glam Girl paper stack (it has a lot of purple in it and it is cute). I applied the paper and cut down some mesh bling. I added that and then several flowers (stampin’ scrappin’, I Am Roses and Wild Orchid Crafts) to the base.
I also decided to alter the ATG Gun to coordinate with the base. I used the same sheet of paper and measured both sides of the gun. I added the mesh bling to both sides, but flowers to one side shown. I only altered the one side because I like the gun to lay flat when I change the tape.
I really like how it turned out and the gun can be taken out at any time or it can stay in the base while being used! Yep, it is fully functional :)
I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Thank you all so much for stopping by, Kenya~
