Inky shrinky

Shrinkmagmar05I had a go at making some fridge magnets this weekend using Shrinky Dinks inkjet paper. Very cool stuff. Little tricky to guage how big to make them before they shrink and you do get distortion (well I did, I used Alison M’s oven and they were great, I did some more in my oven and they sucked). I can’t illustrate for peanuts, so I relied on pictorial typefaces.

Think I’ll be giving this another go.

    My daughter and I just used some of her shrinky dinks (the kids’ version) — I didn’t know they came in laser jet sheets….oh I MUST check that out!!!

    Hey. They were fun to make. Inkjet perfect for those of us who can’t draw 🙂 I’m sure you’ll be able to illustrate something wonderful Leslie!
