When your shrinky dinks come out of the oven, just place a heavy book on top of them, they'll smooth right out.  i do it all the time.

Really cool.  I love Liechtenstein  Smiley

You could try leaving it in the oven for a little longer, I've found that sometimes it continues to shrink for a while even after it unfolds. Books work well too but you may get some smudging.

Yeah the warping is caused by uneven or unfinished shrinking.  Leave it in longer and see if this helps.  If it doesn't, try putting it under a heavy book while its still warm.

thanks everyone!!

i have tried leaving it in for longer, but then again, maybe i should wait a tad bit more.
I've heard of the book idea, but these are colored on both sides so i would be worried about smudging them. anyways, thanks so much for your help! i guess i'll just have to keep experimenting Cheesy
