Shrink Plastic


Well, would you believe that I've never ever used shrink plastic before!!!!  I've got loads but just never got round to using it!!!  Well today all that changed.  But I was totally blown away by just how much it shrinked!!!  This was the original size of the stamp, now look at it!!!!


And again this Crafty Individuals stamp, amazing how much it's shrunk too, but even more amazing that it's all kept it's proportions and you can still read all the words clearly.


And finally, here is my 'little' collection.

Looks as if you've had fun, lol. Isn't it great? You can print on it, too... must correct your grammar, btw - not shrinked, but shrinkeded, he, he!

It really has the wow factor watching it wriggle and squirm and the panic thinking it won't work out.

Looks like Fraz had a lovely, exhausting walk in the woods lol!
I've never used shrink plastic either - it looks a bit scary the way it twists and turns when it's shrinking....these are fabulous though!!!

Great work. Try making a ruler from shrink plastic, then when you need something shrunk to be a certain size, you know what the original size has to be :)
