It is a favourite of my Dad's. And I heard it loud and clear in my head the other day as I tried to save a bit of money. But as the saying goes, it cost me in the end.
I bet you have seen the videos or heard about people trying all sorts of methods to straighten their Big Shot acrylic mats. I have. Hence the reason I am writing this post.
My plates have seen lots of love, use and abuse. So they were looking worse for wear, and I have cooked them before and had some success. Last week was an exception. I don't know if I had the oven too high or they were in their for too long. But this was the end result.
As you can see, it did not end well.
Trying to save myself a bit of money didn't work. And seriously, what was I trying to achieve? The plates are not expensive to buy. They are only $19. Geez, why did I even bother. I needed to buy new ones anyway. I found that they bent a lot quicker after I cooked them the previous time. So yeah - Penny Wise and Pound Foolish. Plus the time I wasted doing this, I could of been creating !!
I know in future I won't even bother. I will just get new plates straight away. After all , they are not going to break the bank.
So don't be foolish like me, and just buy new plates.
Thanks for dropping by.
