I love Shrinky Dink!

Oh my gosh!! I remember doing this as a kid, but I forgot how fun it was! This is my Lovebot that I'm making in all mediums. Now a shrinky dink Lovebot tada! 
I bought this shrink film yesterday, because they didn't have Shrinky Dink at Pearl Art. 
Then I took my lil Lovebot card I printed a bit ago, and traced him on to the shrinky plastic. He was about 3 inches and shrunk to about an inch! I was soooooo stoked. 

I can't wait to shrink more stuff! Any ideas? 

Here are my other lovebots!

That is a great idea! I love mini lovebot! I saw and fell in love with a project on Martha to use this stuff to make custom dog/cat name tags, I haven't got around to finding the stuff here in Oz yet though.
