Post 2 of New "Old" Things - Shrinky Dinks!

I'm sure I wasn't the first, but I had this idea for cutting Shrinky Dinks on the Cricut! I thought Mickey was a great place to start since he's so well-known, and a nice large figure. I didn't want anything with extremely small pieces for my little experiment - wasn't sure how they'd turn out after the shrinking.
I cut the Shrinky Dink film at 3 1/2 inches, and as you can see from the last picture, they shrunk down to just an inch and a quarter (1 1/4 in.).
It was LOTS of fun, and very easy to do. They shrunk down much faster than I remember as a kid making them in the kitchen with my Mom and sister.
