I don't live in the us, so I don't know where to get shrink plastic, now I can still make it!
Do you know how much they shrink? (approximately)

yay recyceling!!!
went to the supermarket on the search for plastic number 6 some weeks ago, too.
and while looking under all the containers, i think they thought im some kind of crazy...then, after half an hour of craziness, i found joghurt containers.... after i bought them i came out of the supermarket and saw that there were loads of plastic number three flower bots that had been destroyed for free in front of the market....
anyways
i love your results!
