It was a stumbleupon discovery.
It re-uses number 6 plastic which you'll identify by the triangle symbol on the bottom of strawberry/ croissant type containers.
H. and I have experimented with other numbers, and they do not work. Of course, you can buy the plastic at Michael's and of course they have lots of choices... colors... printer friendly etc....
H. refuses to use it since the eco appeal is lost.
Start by sanding it. Then draw/write on it. Hole punch before baking."shrinky dink" goes on parchment paper on cookie sheet and then into oven for baking...at.. I think it said 250 but we went with 325 F. (faster was better) watch until that poor little piece of plastic is done contorting and 'shrinking'
The process of the plastic shrinking in your oven is alarming... but the recovery is fun to watch... ie. curls outside first. As you know; the hole punch is useful as a charm... or button etc.
and oh I could go on..equally free and fun. is.. fusing plastic. ......
(that's my "bags4darfur" wallet; made by BB. That's where I stash all those cheques, and receipts from which bag made it to the post office, etc. Marvelous use of landfill waste.
Hey L. see that orange one in the background? The wallet with the pumpkin face on it? I think I inadvertently lifted it from your house, scooping it up with those great fabrics you gave.
I guess that gives me a really good reason to make it to your estate again some time soon.....)
