Great tut!  I have been working with dink lately and you certainly do live and learn!  I have some great stuff I need to take some pics of and post.  I can't wait to find out about double baking!

Well, after screwing up two batches of shrinkies tonight, I finally sought help on Craftster (which should have been my first step, but there you go).  I'm tired of it, but next time I do it, I will have your tute handy.  THANK you!

Thank You for this, it's so nice of you to make this. I made notes Smiley

I'm confused about something. When you bake them, they'll curl up? So you take them out of the oven and then put them back in and they then flatten all on their own?

Can you use acrylic ink instead of Sharpies? How about enamel paint?

What do you personally use for cutting out your shapes? If you don't have a cutting machine, would the thinnest Xacto blade be good for cutting?

I'm a newb.

This post is an awesome resource!

One question--any recommendations on where to purchase shrink film?

I run a daycare and need it in pretty large quantities!

I've recently used Wal-Mart and Brown Packaging.
