Shrinky Dinks

I bought a package of Shrinky Dinks today at Michael's and they are so easy to work with. I wanted to try and make charms for my son's Valentines's treats. They worked and the boys had so much fun watching them bake.
So I cut a heart out at 3" from Plantin Schoolbook and my son wrote everyone's name on them. I then put the decorated touch around the outside. In the oven at 325 for 1-3 minutes (ours took 3) and this is how they turn out! I can't wait to try something else.
I used my gypsy and had to cut the plastic out 2 times but the hole was already there because I used the charm cut.
I have already made the sour cream containers, filled them with candy hearts and now to attach the charm to the container. That is where I am now. So the completed project will be posted tomorrow.


  1. Jessica, these are so adorable. I've always wanted to try and make these, but just haven't gotten the nerve. Maybe you should make a video!!
    Also, I wanted to apologize for not getting back to you sooner regarding the award you gave me. You are so sweet for choosing me and I truly am sorry for not thanking you sooner! I love your work and blog. You are so talented and getting an award from you is such an honor!! Always a fan, Elsa xoxo
