Gosh thanks! I used to make shrinky dinks when I was a kid- I distinctly remember a "Simpsons" set and a "my little pony set" LOL.

I don't know what a Shrinky Dink is.....
It's this paper/plasticy type stuff (kind of reminds me of vellum, but a bit thicker) that you draw on, and then cut out, and bake, and it shrinks to about a third of it's original size, so it get's alot thicker, but smaller, it's really cool. You can get it at pretty much any major craft store, try it out!

Those are great! 

I went out yesterday to get supplies to make some and was able to easily find everything - except the Shrinky Dinks.  Since then I've visited and called a number of places, but nobody around me seems to carry anything like it.  I guess I will find some online and just make it next weekend's project.

P.S. I found these at Create For Less: http://www.createforless.com/products/productDetail.asp?ProductID=46753
