Decorated Clip

Here's one last shrink plastic project before I put the plastic sheets back into my storage bin for awhile.  I decorated a large metal clip with stamps from our new set, Never Forget (MC-59) and the rose wreath stamp from our cling set, Roses (CL-14).  Then I clipped it on to a notepad and added a matching pen for a perfect little gift.

One More...

One more shrink plastic project...I used small plastic condiment containers to make favor-sized baskets. 

To make the shrink plastic...start by sanding the surface of the shrink plastic with fine grade sand paper or a nail buffer block.  Stamp with a permanent ink (like Staz-On) and color with colored pencils.  Be sure to punch holes, if needed, before you shrink the plastic.

A Mini Message

Still playing with my shrink plastic...made this little hanging reminder for a special someone.  I never got around to making calendars this year, but wouldn't a mini calendar look cute in there?  hmmmmm....
