I used to be a shrinky dink-aholic when I was little. As I have grown to my old age of 24, I have moved on and discovered the joys of acrylic plastic. It can be manipulated wonderfully and after lots of fiddling, I always get the colors I want. Yay! It's also nice and lightweight and easy on the skin.

These are my favorites I have made over the past few months. Thanks so much for looking!  Grin

Aww, that's sweet. I always adjust ALL of my images in Photoshop before printing because wasted supplies are a bummer. I use a specialized printer that feeds straight through which allows for a thicker medium(it is used for signs/banners a lot). The plastic isn't much thicker than some paper stacked together. I also use a UV resistant ink to ensure the highest quality in the color.

Trust me, I didn't figure this all out on my own. My graphic design/printer/all things guru pal helped me out at the start. hehe

Thank you! I think the color of the butterfly is what makes it my favorite. I am think of doing a blue/purple or a blue/green one too. I have so much fun!

I wish! Haha. I use a trusty little saw and cut everything by hand! It isn't so bad though.

I got so excited about colors that I started a blue one. It looks delightful  Cheesy
