Thank you muchly for the tutorial! So, do you need an entire sheet to make one name (the whole 8.5 x 11?)

How much does it shrink and do you just pop it in the oven?

Well, I went out and bought me a package of shrinky dinks!  As requested by pinksparklyscot, I am posting a picture of the results of my experiment. 
 
I wanted to make a name necklace for my friend (her birthday is coming up pretty soon!).  Anyhow, I must have done something wrong.  I used a blue sharpie to color the shrinky dink sheet.  After baking the shrinky dink sheet, for some reason or other, the blue ink was rubbing off.  Bad, bad, bad.  Sad  I didn't want to toss it and start over.  So, I 'sealed' the blue ink with glitter nail polish.  The end result wasn't too bad.  The name was nice and sparkly.  I think it might work out afterall.  Thanks again for the tutorial.  I can't wait to experiment with other permanent markers!

pinksparklyscot, Hmm...I guess the ink rubbing off might be due to the type of shrinky dink paper I'm using (perhaps I should have sanded the surface for better ink adhesion?) or perhaps it's just because I was a tad sharpie-happy when I colored the sheet Roll Eyes   

Hanging the finished plastic name on the necklace was no trouble at all.  I snapped the chain in half and threaded jump rings into both ends of the pieces.  Then I slipped the jump rings through the pre-drilled holes on the plastic name.  Voila!  Done.  I can't wait to present my friend with her new name necklace!
