this is a cheaper why to do shrinky dinks. i have everything i needed so it was very cheap and I'm happy the why it came out. or if you don't want to hunt for pastic you can get clear shrinky dinks paper at micheal's good luck
When looking for containers, look under the containers for a icon like this in the images your see befor you (recycle 6 plastic) it the only one you can melt in the oven.
Recycle 6 plastic icon
you need all you see in this pictuer
find art that you like to print out on compture or just something you love around your house like a coloring book or postcard any thing that you think you can trace on to the plastic
take the cantainer and cut out all the flat pieces
I didn't have sandpaper, so i went out side to my patio and started to rub the plastic onto the pavement untill it look frosted on only one side. need to do so that the marker will stick to the frosted side.
get that image you have pick out and put the frost side up and trace it with a parmanent mark. no other marker will do. it well just come off. you can u color colored pencil.
here I try to save as much plastic I can by fiting ather image next to it
Now cut out the imge try to not cut to close and then get your hole pucher and punch a hole were you want to dangle
preheat oven to 350 and get out a flat pan and get a nice piece of aluminum foil and flating it on top of the pan. and then place pieces of you art on to the foil and bake for 5 min untill it flating. it well look it it going bad but just wait it well flating and get hard
when you done take out the foil it won't be hot and flating a piece of card borad on top. This well flating your charms so it look nice and straight
this is what it look like ather you are done. then think mmmm what should i do with this well i made earring and a necklace with my charms but you can make hanger for your zipper or cellphone charms hair charms. so have fun and please let me see your art work.
