Foil Tape and Shrink Plastic

OK, so I’m having sooo much fun with Ranger’s shrink plastic, I can’t stand it! I sound like a kid, I know. But back in the 70’s we had shrinky dinks, and I can remember how fun it was to watch them transform in the oven. Well, back then we didn’t have a heat tool either, and I just love holding that tool and watching these pieces of plastic shrivel up to tiny little charms! I punched holes in 2 of them to hang from something when I go to use them. So cute! And colored pencils and markers work great for coloring them in before shrinking. I think everyone will have one of these little charms on their gift tag this year! And I also have been playing with Ranger’s metal foil tape sheets. The snowflake ornament I cut the tape out with a Spellbinders die twice, then stuck the two together. I saw this done in Paper Creations magazine, and wanted to try it. I already had the bottle caps, so I decorated the inside and used glue dots to adhere it to the foil. The santa ornament is made with craft foil. It is a little heavier than the tape sheets. I cut it out with the tattered floral die, then embossed it. And put it together the same way. They make for a nice new ornament for the tree, but they are fragile, as the foil bends easy. Will have to put them away in a box. Thanks for stopping by today!
