Love, love, love! I just recently picked up some shrinky dinks. I was thinking of making a tag for our dog, but I love the charms too!  Shocked

Ok, so I caved and bought some shrinky dink last night.... Do you have to seal the colored pencil/markers in at all, or does the baking take care of that?

Thanks!  (So excited!!)

the shrinking will take care of that, but if you want it to be shiny you could seal it with as little as clear nail polish

The charms came out awesome!

one word of warning though, they may not make the best dogs tags  Undecided I gave one to my friend as a keychain, he usually keeps his keys attached to his belt loop, exposed like a dog tag would be, and I found it laying on the floor one day in class, broken at the skinny part where the hole is close to the edge. he never knew it was missing  Embarrassed

yes I learned that the hard way, I turned the tags into magnets, and they are displayed on my fridge. I think the charms will be ok, I wear mine on a chain I have and if I sell them I plan on selling them with a cahin too so peoples can just buy new charms and have a different necklace

Aww, rats. Well, thanks for the warning on the dog tags. I'm sure I can come up with other uses for them.  Sad
