Can You Make Your Own Shrinky Dinks?

Hello All,

Well, I always wanted to make my own Shrinky Dinks. But…. Ugg,  I will need to go buy them online or at Diaso for $1.50 for one sheet. Who needs the aggravation of going outside. And if you know me I’m all about the free.

So I went on to YouTube to see “if” it was possible to make my own charm. And sure enough, it is. I sifted through a few videos and this one I like the best.

Next, I went online and found an image I liked.


Now I’m a firm believer in NOT stealing. I am not selling this, I just wanted to see if what “Draw So Cute” was saying was true. Can you use #6 Plastic and a confection oven can be used to make your own Shrinky Dinks? And the answer is Yes… yes you can.

The instruction was simple and the tips he gave on his YouTube video were spot on. So after cutting up my #6 plastic Chinese Food container. This is what I came out with.

Not to shabby right? Well… now that I have made this I’m looking all over the house for #6 plastic. But alas this little tidbit is all I could find. I need to tell my hubby to order some more take out. hahaha!!! But in all seriousness Jordan Sphinx thanks for the help.
