As much as I loved shrink plastic before, discovering that I could melt it slightly to make the roughened backside turn clear sent me over the edge in helpless adulation.

Obviously the next step in my twitterpated haze was to add glitter and animal print. Classy!





No glitter in the necklace, but it's still pink so it's okay.


In case you couldn't get enough pink-cheetah-africa in one day. I mean who can, really?

Tongue What do you guys think?

How do you melt it? And when? After you shrank it? It looks amazing, and you are right - there is no such thing as too much pink or animal print Wink

Thanks!
I shrink them first at 325 degrees, then bump the heat up to 450 and stick them back in until they're clear and sort of rounded on the edges.
