Shrink Plastic week: tag

Day two of our shrink plastic week with Isa'Art and a beautiful tag. Isa used the shrink plastic as a centre for her flower and will show you how to shape your shrink plastic as you are heating it. 
Let us know what you think. 

Stamp your image on Shrink Plastic and cut it out. 
Place it on a washer, hold it with a tool of your choice (that won't melt), here Isa used a Ten Second Studio ball tool (usually used to work metal) and heat the Shrink Plastic with a heat tool.

Isa then cut fabric flowers with the Sizzix die, layered the flower and the Shrink Plastic centre and added a bead.

Tip of the day
Make the hole in your shrink plastic before heating it (with a large hole punch or the largest setting of your Crop-a-Dile). It will shrink when you heat it and be hardly visible.
If you forget, you can use the Crop-a-Dile to make the hole afterwards too, but it will be bigger as it would not have shrunk.
