I made this for mama24boyz for the Geeky Christmas Swap.  It's Life Hearts from the Zelda series.  I used clear Shrinky Dink,  clear permanent red pen, and solid black pen.  I had to make them 3 times before I got one that was close to the size I wanted.  It's designed to look right with her hand hanging at her side...kind of wishing I had just made all the hearts solid...I added some dimensional glue to puff up the hearts a bit.  But I'm happy with it.  I keep imagining it with other bracelets though...

Suggestion that worked for me, though I can't find at the moment, and will have to make another.

Shrinky Dinks. Love it. My pinterest has some on my Halloween Chunky page. I wrestled with the sizing, too.

Take a strip of ruler size shrinky dink plastic. Mark the inches on it. And any other 1/2, or also 1/4 or 1/8 markings you wish. Or metric for our overseas friends.
Theeeeeeennnnnn. Shrink it! Now you have a new ruler which tells you what size your measurements will become.

So if you wish a certain size...just look for that marking on your new shrinky dink ruler, and measure your plastic big size based on the number, and it will shrink down accurate to where you are wanting things.

Some of the shrinky dink plastics are not all alike. So if you change brands, you may have to make new rulers for them. Hope this helps.

The dimensional glue really does add quite a bit of puffiness doesn't it? Looks good!
