Woodware Design Challenge - Shrink Plastic

Shrink plastic is such fun! but also quite testing at times.... I love words and greetings that have been shrunk. So the tiny tag on this card has been made using white shrink plastic, blue Woodware tag punch and this greeting set
FRCL214 Tag Builder

Very simple but so effective!

The little bird comes from this set
FRCL210 Sitting Pretty

I coloured the bird using Sakura Jelly Roll Glaze pens so he is all shiny. 

The little envelope is made using a Woodware punch. You can also get a tiny square envelope punch.

A few shrink plastic tips:
Colours intensify so use pale colours or colour in softly.
Holes get very small. I used an office single punch hole on my tag and it shrunk to about 1/8". If you want to work out the shrinkage make yourself a shrink plastic ruler. Measure and mark a line on a piece of shrink plastic and shrink it. You can then work out how small your piece will look! [A tip from my ceramic days!!]
