It's absolutely AGES since I had a play with shrink plastic and while tidying up my crafts stash I realised I had a couple of sheets of printable shrink plastic which I'd bought *cough* a little while ago. They came with a free download of some tags to print and the date on the download is 2007 so the while might not be so little after all. And the pack was still unopened - talk about NBUS!
So, I printed the sheet of tags, cut them out and punched holes in them and shrank them in the oven since there were so many, and I now have a batch of handy little chunky tags to use. Here is the first of them in action:
This flower stamp is even older than the shrink plastic, it must be at least 20 years old. It's an un-named red rubber UM that came in a grab bag and is one of my all time favourite stamps. I used Promarkers to colour it to go with papers from the Craft Asylum "Candy" range - also very old, these are among the final odds and ends from an old pad. In real life the pink of the tag, flowers and papers is a much better match than it looks here - blame the gloomy weather and the fact that plastic and paper don't reflect flash the same way!
