The kids can't have all the fun with Shrinky Dinks! I mean come on. It didn't take this mom 2 seconds to get in on the Shrinky Dink fun. We colored and cut and I experimented.

I know it doesn't look like much before hand but these started off at about 2" tall and then I put them in the oven on parchment paper. Oven was set on 350 degrees as suggested on the shrinky dink instructions.
The above picture is the Shrinky Dink in action. It is curling in the oven and looks as if it could not possibly come out right but it does. I added the charms to a necklace that a friend gave me last year. The charms are so delicate and fun to look at.
Then for fun, I made these.
A one inch circle cutter and a regular hole punch made these super tiny buttons. I'm thinking how cool would it be to sew a button in your child's jacket with the owners information for just in case. Also, fun valentine buttons to wear on your sleeve. Bigger whole punches would give you so much more freedom. I really need to find my 2" whole punch.
P.S. After I posted this I started looking for other Shrinky Dink ideas. Check these out.
