  9. Hi from Adelaide South Australia. Love your show as I get many ideas for gifts. Please advise where I may be able to order shrink wrap paper similar to what you used when making jewellery discs and where Steve made a mini baseball bat. Can not find anything here in Oz so am happy to order from USA. I only need a few sheets to make discs for gift cards. I may also try to use them for earrings. Thank you and I hope Foxtel pay TV here in Oz continues with your show. Love it. Cheers Maria Adamczak, Allenby Gardens, Adelaide, South Australia.
