Shrink plastic + Paper punch = cute embellishments

These little flowers and leaves on my handmade felt key-ring were made using shrink plastic punched with my Simplicity geared punch flower head, and medium heart punch,

 I then coloured them with prismacolor pencils and punched a hole in the centre with a circle punch before shrinking them as instructed on the packet.

It is then just a matter of sewing them to your project. These little cute flowers could be used for making brooches, topping cards or any other project that takes your fancy. Why not give it a try.

I sewed the flowers on with a seed bead to hold them in place (Sew through the back of the flower then into the seed bead then back down through the front of the flower)


Have fun and do let me know if you use your Tonic punches with Shrink Plastic.
