Shrinky Dinks


This idea was in the book for Disney Fonts. They are made with Shrinky Dink plastic. The shrinky Dinks can be found at Hobby Lobby or shrinkydinks.com. Funny the company is the original creaters and they are from WI. I cut them 2.5 inches. Settings: High speed, High pressure, 6 on blade and used multi cut. They pop off the page with ease. I colored them using sharpies. Preheat oven to 375. Place them color side up on a piece of craft paper. Place that on a cookie sheet in the oven. Bake 2 mins at first. then if doing more drop to 1 min 40 sec. May have to play with it a bit. Once they cooled I put a jump ring on them and attached those to the bracelets. Was a lot of work but well worth it to see the finished product. I am going to make 3 small boxes to surprise the girls with them. These are the same friends going to Disney.
