I used to play with this stuff when I was a kid!! It is so fun to see it being used in scrapbooks now! Have you ever used this on your layouts?? If not, do you think it is ever something you would try?

I haven't ever used it on a layout but I really really want to give it a try! I think it would make great embellishments!!

I know what shrinky dinks are but I've never seen them used in scrapping... what a good idea though

Here is a video about it. You can also cook them in the oven if you don't want to use the heat gun.

YouTube - shrink plastic butterflies tutorial

And here is a site I found on making your own shrinky dink plastic. Don't know if it works or not, but will have to give it a try.

I've never done anything with it, but it seems like it would be fun to use!
