Hi! I've had my Expression for about two weeks and of course I want to try everything! I've about worn out my mat learning the settings. The spray adhesive tip did not work to re-sticky it for me. I'll be ordering new mats. Crying

Anyway, my question is about the shrink plastic. What is a good source for getting this stuff? I've found some on Ebay, but, I don't know if it is the kind that will work in my Cricut. What do I need to search for?

Thanks in advance!

I know Michaels and Joanne has it. You might want to do a Youtube search for cutting shrink plastic with a cricut machine.

The Mickey font has some charms that people have cut with the shrink plastic and made charm bracelets that are adorable. Before you buy the digital though, I would search to make sure you like the charms.

Hi, Just Rachel! Shrinky Dink is available in Hobby Lobby, too! It cuts beautifully in the Cricut!! I used the plastic to make leaves for a tree on a project for a Blog Hop. Here is the link. You will need to scroll past the info and down toward the end of the project...
Using Shrink Plastic

BTW...please be careful about using products to restick your mat. You will void the warranty on your Cricut!

Tip...before using a product to restick your mat, trying cleaning the mat with a toothbrush and dishwashing detergent. First, scrub off the bits and pieces of stuff on the mat. I use the scrapper that comes in the Cricut kit. Apply a small amount of detergent to the surface, scrub with the brush, and rinse under cold water. Hang the mat up and let dry. It is like magic....the sticky comes back!

Welcome to the message board!
