I made these for a personal swap.  They are all images of crafts that Fidget has either made or received before.  Wink

What better to have on your pins than reminders of all the wonderful crafts you've made?   Grin

I made the pin cushion for her too.  There are more pictures on this thread.

Ohh... you don't have to worry about that at all!  You actually bake them with the pins right in 'em!  They shrink around the pins, so they kind of adhere to them.  I'm sure ya could take them off if you pushed down on them too hard, but they seem pretty sturdy.

Here's a wonderful tute! http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/2005/08/tutorial_for_sh.html  Although I didn't follow this one, it looks just about the same as what I did.  I didn't have transparent shrinky paper (only solid white), so I had to bake them on their sides so that the ink wasn't face down on my paper in the oven.

*IDEA* use the strawberry container idea that everyone talks about and make cheap shrinky dinks
plus you are recycling your pins and the containter =]
