So is this lame or awesome - or something in between  Wink

I ran shrink paper through my inkjet - shrunk them up, punched holes in the corners and linked them all together. Ta Da, a bracelet!

why did i never think of that!? ingenious. how well did it go through the printer? the shrinky dink paper i ever used was pretty thick and nonflexible. at any rate that bracelet looks hot.

Definitely not lame! That looks so cool. I'm sure no one would know it was shrink plastic unless you told them:D I love the design you used.

something like this was probably used: http://www.dickblick.com/products/grafix-shrink-films/?wmcp=yahoo&wmcid=SiteSubmitProducts&wmckw=Grafix+Shrink+Films#photos

it's made for inkjet printers, whereas the regular stuff isn't.  so don't use it in your printer.

I've been dying to get some inkjet shrink plastic.  and this is definitely not lame.  Smiley

Looks awesome, it would go great with the shrinky skull necklace I made.

You can use regular shrink plastic in your printer, it takes some playing around with though to get it to come out right.

Laser printers won't work, I believe they get too hot for the plastic. Sorry lovesclutter, ya gotta use an inkjet.  Wink

I wouldn't use it though.  I don't trust it.  it also might depend on how your paper loads.  my printer practically folds the page in half, while my old one hardly bent it.

I would not risk my printer with the "Shrinky Dink"  material.

I used "Graffix Shrink Film" specifically for inkjets. You can order it online. I found it at a local craft shop. NOT Michaels - they don't carry it.

I think I got mine (inkjet printable shrink plastic) at Hobby Lobby, but it was Shrinky Dink brand. I'm surprised that Michaels doesn't carry it. They usually have a bigger selection than Hobby Lobby in their shrink plastic.
