How did you punch the holes in them? Do you do that before sticking them in the oven? It's been about 25 years since I've shrunk a shrinky dink so my memory of how they work is fuzzy...

Totemo kawaii!!  Did you use the inkjet dinks?  I bought some at Michael's to make custom Hello Kitty accessories for a swap.  Your kitty is awesome!!  I'm thinking of using Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze.  Going to work on them now ***crosses fingers***
