Looky!  A couple of interesting links to check out! Grin

#1 - A mini write-up on DIY shrinky dinks (i.e. using #6 food grade plastic, which is also polystyrene)

http://www.curbly.com/Chrisjob/posts/2252-DIY-Shrinky-Dinks-

#2 - Really a tutorial for making magnets, but what really caught my interest, was the mention of using embossing powder to coat the surface of the finished shrinky dinks pieces to make it extra shiny!
