This has probably been covered a gazillion times but I just did a search and the stuff that came up was quite cryptic. I admit it: I do not know what "ShrinkyDinks" are.  Huh Apparently, you can use the #6 recycle white foam from takeout containers instead of buying the product. I think you bake it? If someone can please tell me about the #6 foam thing, what temp. and how long and what kind of markers or pens to use, I'd really appreciate it. (Everyone else here seems to have lots of ShrinkyDink knowledge (so there don't seem to be specific instructions for the "shrinkydink impaired"), and I see some cool stuff made this way, and I would like to try it with the take-out containers). Thanks. (Or if this has been covered in a thread, and someone can post the thread, that would be great too.)

i've been to a craft supply store today and i saw something similar to shrinky dink (it was called "magic shrinking paper" or something like that and it was dutch). i thought about buying it but i didn't have enough money with me then  Sad

oddly enough i just made a shrinkydink neopets bracelet. they are like plastic sheets of paper, andyou can color on them with colored pencils or sharpies and when you put them in the oven, they become thick and more defined in color, and nearly half their size. its pretty cool send me a message if you need help

Check it out here:


Here in Sweden the shrinky dinks come in sets of three sheets in 'regular paper' size (A4), and they are dead expensive.
It's much cheaper to order large quantities from the website I just listed... Smiley

I mainly make key-chains and charms for bracelets and earrings with mine. And I'm yet to try the printable ones!
