Shrink Plastic Again

Hello all!  It is nice and chilly ( well, chilly according to JBay standards!) We have had some requests to re-post the shrink plastic post as a single post, so here goes!!

Cariena has a (fairly new) puppy.  Two weeks ago she discovered that this little pup was clearing the 5 foot wall to go and visit the neighbour's dog.  Of course she did not believe it at first, until she witnessed it!  She did not know what to do - it was weekend and she knew she had to "tag" the dog, in case it got lost.  To the rescue?  Shrink Plastic!

First she punched a tag from the sheet of Shrink Plastic.  Then, using Staz On Solvent Ink, she stamped her telephone number on it

She then took her Heatgun and started to heat the Shrink Plastic.  As you can see, it starts to shrink and shrivel up.

As it heats up, it starts to even out again.  When it is no longer shrinking, you can put something heavy on it to flatten it.

Here you can see the original size and the "shrunken" plastic!  Cariena punched a hole in it before she started and she tied it with some wax cord to her baby's collar.  It is still there! Get your shrink plastic out of hiding, and use it!!
