Hi all.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend, boy the year is passing by so quickly.

This weeks PoW is " SHRINKY DINKS "(1558) .

What is " SHRINKY DINKS " ..I hear you ask.

It is sheets (approx 250mm x 200 mm) of special formulated plastic which transforms to approximately 1/3rd their original size and actually become 9 times thicker when heated.

It is great for creating your own embelishments for cards and scrapbooking.

You can also create magnets, key chains, charms, jewellery, ornaments, name tags ........the ideas are unlimited!....Packs of Shrinky Dinks Frosted - Ruff n' Ready comes in sheets of 5 ( 1558) and full instructions included.

Fabulous fun for all the family from 4 to 90 years...of course adult supervision i recommended when heating.

I can remember using this many years ago, when I was a child. We use to heat it up in the oven back then, we were amazed how it transformed and the amazement amongst children and adults alike still continues.

Shrinky Dinks sheets can be found on page 58 of the current Kaszazz catalogue.

In todays card I have used Cupcakes/Stripes SB Paper (4831), Purple Card (9492), I stamped the Cupcake (4136KF) onto the Shinky Dinks sheet, then cut around the image , coloured the back using Aquacolor Crayons (4540) then placed the image into a heatproof tray and used a Heat Gun (1013) to Shrink it.

I attatched an eyelete to the Cupcake SB Paper and hung the Shrinky charm from Jump Rings (6460) it actually dangles from the rings. The small cupake stamped on the punched circle is from the Calendar Icon Set (4126KJ), I also added some White Rick Rack Ribbon (70765)

Happy Stampin'
