Pre-heat the griddle. Place the baking sheet onto the griddle. Place the white Friendly Plastic® stick onto the baking sheet and allow it to soften.
Gather together some of your favorite Friendly Plastic® scraps. Position and begin to place the scraps down the center of the white plastic. Allow the scraps to soften and inlay into the white plastic. The longer they are left on the heat, the deeper the inlay.
Remove the pan from the griddle. While the plastic is still warm, cut six circles and one heart by pressing the cutter into the softened plastic. Dip the cutter back into the cold water after each cut. This will help keep it from sticking to the plastic. Allow the plastic to cool. Use the needle tool to press under the edges of the cooled plastic and remove it from the pan. Pop out the cut shapes. If needed use the craft knife to cut around each one.
Apply the Envirotex sealer following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Glue the heart onto the center of the lid. Glue the rhinestone into the center of the brass flower. Position and adhere the flower onto the heart. Allow the glue to dry.
Glue a plastic circle onto each of the magnets. Allow the glue to dry. Place the magnets into the tin.
