Spring break here I come
Excellent DIY tutorial on how to make your own shrink plastic (a.k.a. Shrinky Dink) from recycled #6 plastic food takeout containers. Great way to make your own inexpensive jewelry (i.e. earrings, rings, pendant necklaces). Cheap kids craft too. Have them draw a design on it and make into to jewelry for mom. Lovely Mother's Day gift idea.
A lady at the post office taught me this trick and I have realized very few people know about it! You can turn a flat rate envelope into a pouch to increase the capacity. It holds more than a small flat rate box ($5.80) and about as much as a medium ($12.35) for only $5.60. So worth it! I do this all the time! Just fold the bottom both ways, and flatten it out from the inside, folding the corners and taping them up into a rectangular bottom. Secure with lots of tape. Happy shipping!
Another great DIY Christmas party gift or handout for teachers? CUTE!
