Shrink Plastic Brooch





My new craft love...shrink plastic. I was surprised to see how much fun these things really are to make! Using just frosted shrink paper, colored pencils, and a microwave oven, creating a customized brooch is very easy. The opposite side is felted, and a pin back was applied to the back.
