    Hi, I’m from Italy.Your snowflake is really cool! It’s the first time that I hear about shrink plastic. Can you tell me where can I buy it? Is it simply to use? Thank you.

      Hi! Thank you for your comment! And how great that you want to use shrink plastic!
      There are many places to buy it. You can just googled ‘shrink plastic’ and you will get some links. And maybe if you search on the Italian google, there’s a change that you will find Italian online shops with lower shipping costs for you.
      You can also try Ebay, because they just sell everything!

      Good luck!xx

    Quick question! The first one pictured looks so much thicker than the shrink paper one. What is it made of?

    • Lana Red 12th January 2014 at 12:37 pm

      The necklace in every picture is the same, so maybe it looks thinner on the picture?
      I don’t know if you ever used shrink paper before, but the magical part about it, is that it shrinks in size and the amount that it shrinks, it adds in thickness. So the picture where I show how to cut a hole in it, shows the plastic before it gains it’s ‘thickness’.
      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!xx
