Remember Shrinky Dinks?!

Well I've discovered something else that PTI dies will cut!  Shrinky Dinks!  I've made some adorable embellishments using the Beautiful Bloom dies.  I've included the die in the photo for size reference.  I think these will look so cute on a card or other paper project!

I used Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, Hibiscus Burst, and Spring Rain ink.  The smallest three are simply colored with copics.

Dye ink doesn't work.  And for some reason the spring rain ink isn't drying all the way.  I could smudge it if I wanted.  But the others dried just fine.






So then I started getting curious how other dies would work! 

I punched a hole in the top of the Mat Stack 5 cut before I put it into the toaster oven so I would be able to tie some thread through it.  I think my daughter has claimed this one to add as a little charm onto her backpack!

The inks I used for these are from Martha Stewart.
