I have a lot of beautiful stamps, so I wanna try it with them first. I bought "Shrinky Dinks" at Michaels ($5.99 5 sheets) and used "Staz On" ink pad. I have tried different ink pads I have at home, but none of them work. And according to Shrinky Dinks, it recommends Staz On, so I gave in to buy extra ink pad. And it works perfectly.

I hand stamped on the Shrink Plastic, and it let it dry. After it dried, just cut them out with scissor and punch a hole. I put them in the oven as the instruction said. But I strongly recommend that only put 2 pieces at a time. Because I noticed that after it is shrank, it is not totally flat, I have to flatten it with a weight. But you only have 10 seconds to reshape it. If you baked too many pieces, you won't have enough time to flatten all.
I also tried to die cut Shrink Plastic, I just haven't had time to take pictures. They turned out pretty nice too.

As you can see, it shrank a lot. So when you choose your stamp, you don't want something too small. And I am very surprised that after shrink, the shrink plastic keeps the detail very well. Actually, it looks even better.
I really enjoy playing with Shrink Plastic. It is an easy and quick Craft Projects. It is perfect for kids and adult.
