My son has got to dress up with a recycling theme on Friday - and I had the idea of making a keyring or necklace out of a shrunk crisp packet. (That's not all he'll be wearing though ha ha!!)
So I've had a go at shrinking 2 crisp packets tonight - I tried one using my heat gun, but just melted holes in the bag. So I put the second one in the oven - gas mark 6 for 2 minutes - it did shrink, but also turned black, and its long and thin rather than shrunk to same proportions. Anyone any ideas??? I'll just have to eat more crisps to have another go LOL - think next time I'll have the oven at a lower temperature and for a bit longer!
Edit to add: I have read various comments on the internet that its possible crisp packets aren't made of the same plastics they used to be so it might not work properly on modern packets!
I'll keep you informed how I get on!
Love, Andrea xx
