I was inspired by this project to make a postcard themed bracelet for my pal Calabaza. It was quite the time, let me tell ya! I found the postcard images from an etsy seller and followed the instructions on the Shrinky Dink package to print them out, cut, and bake. This is what happened:

Times that by three plus experimenting with left over scraps, and I finally reached out for help. Thankfully Holly at 504 Main (the above mentioned inspiration project) helped me out and we chatted about what was going wrong. I think the instructions on the package said to heat at 250-300, but I cant remember for sure (and I could have misread it as well). I think I ended up setting the oven at 375 and FINALLY they stopped sticking together. I had one sheet left to make the rest of the links and have some extras left over.

At least it turned out well in the end! And C likes it, and thats all that matters. Smiley

Thanks for looking! Smiley

It's so pretty!  I'm glad you finally found success, it was totally worth it!  The bag is adorable, as well!

I don't like it, I LOVE it! I'm going to wear it to work tomorrow 'cause it'll just be staff- no kids around to booger up my precious bracelet  Smiley . I have it all set out ready to go!

Thanks for all the effort you put into it! The end result is perfect, Sticker!
