Inkjet Printable Shrinky Dinks in the Cricut Imagine! Who knew??

OK, did some of you know that you could do this???  If so, why didn't someone tell ME??? haha  I am so thrilled with how these came out.  The printing is perfectly detailed and the Shrinky Dinks cut like a charm setting the multi-cut on 3 or 4.  They popped right out of the sheet and I'm so happy with the vibrant colors and the detail.  I think my favorite is the little bird on the perch.  The cut outs in it make it even more detailed. I cut mine at 3 inches, but it really depends on what you want the finished size of your charm to be.  I was able to get everything but the butterfly out of one sheet. So, if you haven't tried this, you need to get yourself some Shrinky Dinks and go to town!!!  You can use a coupon on them at Michael's, which brings them down to around a buck a sheet.  Too fun!!

Without further ado, here's the pic:


What do you think???

NOTE:  No, I haven't forgotten about the promised give-away!  It is a work in progress.  Hope to post it soon!!

Hugs!

  2. I know!!! I have been a Shrinky Dink craze lately! I have been making pins. I haven't used it yet on Lori's Garden! I know they have several types but the ones for the Imagine I use Ink Jet Printer ones. I use my heat gun. Do you use your oven or heat gun?
