I had some shrink plastic from long ago in my stash, but also noticed it is sold in the stamping supply aisle as the Shrinky Dink brand in my local Michael's, in case you don't have any on hand.
I used a 3 inch punch to cut out a circle. Remember, your image will shrink by about 50% once heat set, so consider how large you'd like your finished piece to be. Using a fine grit sandpaper, I sanded the side where I wanted to put the image.
I thought I may have had a snowflake stamp in my stash, but no such luck. I also knew I would need a special kind of ink (like Stayz On) if I wanted to stamp on the shrink plastic, and I knew I didn't have anything other than black. In the spirit of using what you have on hand, I experimented using my Uni Ball white gel pen and drew the snowflakes free hand. Since doodling and drawing aren't my forte, I used Google images and searched for "hand drawn snowflakes" and used that as my guide. There, that wasn't too hard.
If you'd like to thread your flair with twine (or in my case, tinsel), you'll want to hole punch before shrinking.
Now for the transformation...
I used something hard and flat (like this canister cover) to flatten out my flair as soon as I turned off the heat.
Next, let's add a little bling to our icy flakes. Some silver and diamond Stickles should do the job.
A little tinsel from my January Counterfeit Kit, "Lingering Season" and I'm ready to add my flair to a scrapbook page.
Here's another up-close look...
Had enough of snow and ice? No problem. Get out your shrink plastic and make your flair suit your fancy.
