Going Green Ornaments

From the Designer: "Save the environment and save your pocket with this very easy ornament craft! Use a plastic number 6 to cut a design of your choice by Exacto knife. Place it in the oven for 20 minutes. Make sure there is ventilation. Take out the shrunk design and color it with nail polish or any other color you prefer. Just make sure the plastic is number 6. Most styrofoams and containers for food are number 6. But, double-check to make sure. Have fun! Happy holiday! Be kind to yourself and others and the environment!"
