I recently rediscovered something that I couldn't resist playing with again - shrink plastic! Remember Shrinky Dinks??? Or for those who couldn't afford Shrinky Dinks the 'old chip packet in the oven' then made into earrings phase.
Whilst browsing around blog land I discovered this cute tutorial by Cathe Holden over at Just something I made on how to make a customised shrink plastic ring.. Instantly, my brain was filled with shrink plastic possibilities. Thanks to the www and online shopping I soon had my own pack of inkjet printable shrink plastic which I immediately had to play with. (patience is not a virtue)

Here are my 1st attempts with shrink plastic. I printed out some pretty lace doilies to make buttons with. A Mr Phrenology Head for a ring and necklace. And the VW Bugs because I am opening a new shop 'red punch buggy' and I thought I could make badges or magnets as thank you gifts.
