Brown owls inspiration :: we're shrinking!

This Sunday is our first proper Brown Owls meeting of the year! I'm super excited, maybe even more so than usual, because this month we're trying something brand new (to us, I mean!): shrinky plastic!

Look at these lovelies Naomi made on her shrinky test drive!

As always, I've spent much of my internetty time in the week before a Brown Owls meeting trawling some of my favourite webby places for inspiration.

Flickr has a whole group of shrinky dink dink dink creations, and loads more if you just search for shrink plastic.
Of course pinterest has loads of links to great tutorials - I especially love this one about how to make buttons, from   scissors.paper.wok!
There are also some really cute and clever shrink plastic jewellery pieces on etsy - look at this bunting necklaceteapot earrings and paper plane brooch! Gorgeous!

Owly friends don't forget to pop over to the blog to check out the details for Sunday, and to let us know if you can make it along!
