I can't believe it. Today while the littlest napped I decided I was finally going to attempt to make bracelets like the DT and Leslie Hankey made. And it worked!!Woot For those of you that did the charm swap in July will remember there were SOME of us that despised Shrinky Dinks.Wink

For my first bracelet I used TC Black and White to flood fill the Imagine's standard scalloped circle shape at 1.7". I then used Baby Boutique for the other shapes cut between 2.5" and 3". I used the draft quality print. My Imagine was set at Blade 6, Multi-cut 3, Pressure 5, Speed 4. I found that it was cutting so well that I dropped it back to a multi-cut of 2. I punched my holes and put them in the oven at 300 degrees. I sealed them with a Krylon fixative.

After that worked so well I made a Santa bracelet using Santa's Village. I heart this cart!

The scalloped circles are 1.5" and the various Santa's are between 2.5 and 3". I did have a little oppsies with one of the Santa since he folded over on himself. I popped him back in the oven and flattened him out again. He has a little mark on his nose, but that's so you know he's the tough Santa.Smile

AWESOME braclets, Love themBigGrin BigGrin . I was just looking at a shrinky dink kit for my daughter but, now I think I will just give plastic sheets. I see alot more like using alcohol inks on clear plastic sheets to create yet another look. You would have to do the alcohol ink first and then the printing on that.
