Orrrrrrr you could just go to walmart and get ya one of those cordless dremels that are around 19.99 like I did and not punch a hole in them.  THen after you are done just drill a little hole big enough for a jump ring and presto chango your done.  Its a lot easier I think.

It's on the old blog.  You should be able to find it at http://www.vintagebluestudio.blogspot.com.  I've since moved to typepad.

I have been using Shrinky Dink for a while and I had the curling problem too.  So I could control what happened to the item more I went and bought an embossing heat gun and use it instead of an oven or anything like that.  You can control how fast it shrinks and when it curls it will almost immediately uncurl itself.  What I use is a dowel rod to hold it in plac while heating so I don't burn myself.  Don't put it too close or you'll burn the plastic and just wave it around in a circular motion and it will start to shrink.  If you lay the dowel rod across it, as it heats it will curl up on the rod then continue to heat it and it will curl right back out.  When it curls back out I instantly slap a heavy book on top of it to keep it straight and flatten it out even more, usually 30 sec. 

Its easier than it sounds, you have more control this way too.

You can find it at Joann's too over in the kids craft section.  They usually have all kinds of it, but you have to be careful and make sure you read the package because some are not inkjet worthy if you plan on using a printer of any kind.

Ok so I'm new and I've been reading this thread and a few others for a while now.  Everyone is talking about Sherrie Habbs book and website.  Well thing is I've looked it up I can't find the darn thing.  I have typed in her name I have typed in everything I can think of to find her site.  Can anyone please give me the exact URL because no where in any of these threads I've been reading has anyone specifically came out and said it is www. blah blah blah.com.


Thanks
