Introduction: How to Shrink a Crisp Packet (empty) (optional) and Make It a Keyring

About: hi i live in wales (next to england) i love to make unique things my name is elis i get my ideas from other peoples ibles and modify them

this is our first ible, we have no camcorder or a camera for that matter so sorry about that, pics are from the web, please like it.
its very cool!

B.T.W; crisp is chips in british slang (sorry to you americans out there)

Step 1: Step 1

first you need an empty packet of crisps/chips (great excuse to eat loads of crisps/chips!)  it can be any brand, size or flavour of crisps/chips

Step 2: Step 2

when you have you'r empty packet, put it in an oven at aroud 210 degrees C for 3-5 mins.

If you require it to be smaller insert back into oven for extra 2 mins at time.

repete as required.

Step 3: Step 3 (optional)

this step is optional so if you just want you'r shrunken packet thats fine but this step will show you how to make you'r packet a keyring.

first you need to get a paper punch/hole punch.

create you'r hole on one of the corners at least 7mm from any edges (packet may grow/shrink a little after a while)

    You can do this in a microwave. It takes about 5 seconds, and sparks a bit too.

    Just be careful that you don't set it on fire.

    Great idea!
