I saw this aweseome idea on a few websites so I decided to try it with a Close to My Heart Spin!
I washed out a #6 plastic lunch container I used and I cut a piece just a little larger than the stamp I was going to use. I wanted to try the May Stamp of the Month as I love sunflowers. So I used Stayz-on ink to put it on the plastic (I have heard you can sand the plastic and use regular stamping ink but I didn’t want to scratch it up). And then I used some sharpies to color in the sunflower.
I used my paper trimmer to cut it with clean edges, then I used a corner rounder to make it look pretty. I punched a hole in the top with my Crop-a-dile and I put in on parchment and into the oven at 250 degrees.
The instructions I read made it sound like it would happen in seconds, but it was in there a good 20 minutes until it seemed to shrink and flatten back out. It looks questionable for a while while it is shrinking
This has so many possibilities with stamping on plastic and shrinking it. The plastic once shrunk is very hard and durable!
