KnittyMomma, I've seen the shrinky dink sheets at Pat Catan's and Michael's.  I usually shop at Jo Ann's but they didn't seem to have them (and I did ask one the sales associates about it...).  Anyhow, I got mine at Pat Catan's because they were much cheaper than Michael's.

I don't know if this is the most cost effective way to get it, but it is available on line.

btw - very cool project, i can't wait to make one!

i also read on the site that they recommend using Painters Opaque Paint Markers to color them.

I live in England, and got myself a packet of Shrinkles (that's what THEY were called) the otherday from Hobbycraft. The sold A5 & A4 sized packets. I haven't used them yet (stupidly forgot to get jewelry findings!) but am sooo looking forward to it.

Anyway. So the point was, they'll have it in a Hobbycraft, and if you don't have the fortune to live near one, then craft shops....

I haven't used shrinkydinks before, so pardon my silly question, but when they dry are they hard?  Embarrassed

Where can I buy shrinky dinks???  Would Michaels have them?  The necklaces are awsome!!!  My name, Kyra, is so rare that I'm never able to find it anywhere so this project is so neat-o!
