my guinea pig key ring

Tweedy is now famous!  The kids love him and he has a friend called Darwin.    For those of you who have never tried shrinkies and are planning to have a go, don’t panic when the plastic heats up and begins to twist and turn, curl and looks like it will never end up a smaller version of your picture!  The plastic will calm down and eventually lie flat.  I used the edge of the scissors to tease in back into shape and applied the pressure of my palm once it was cool enough to touch.
