Nostalgia alert!


Remember this?! I found some in a joke shop yesterday and it was so fun to do! You colour in the plastic lightly with colour pencil, put it in the oven and wait for it to shrink to a seventh of its original size! I love my new elephant keyring. It's suitably 80's and naff. I'm sure there are endless crafty possibilities for this stuff (other than the badges and fridge magnets they already suggest). What would you make with it?

oh! how brilliant! i'm not sure i have seen it before though. now i want some obviously. we don't have a joke shop, sadly. i'd make a pendant with one, it's quite Tatty Devine i think.

Oooh I love it, especially as a keyring. I might use it on a handbag as a little accessory or on Bella's diaper bag. Too retro cute! xoxo

Wow I don't think i've seen that before, it's fantastic! Would look great attached to the rings on my work notebook.
