First of all, you'll need the Shrinky Dink report. I usually buy mine at Hobby Lobby utilizing their 40% off coupon. You'll find this coupon applying this LINK. 6 pages generally speaking cost $12.99 and so the voucher truly really helps to save cash. Many hobby shops carry SDs, therefore make sure to look around and check with their coupons. This is actually the connect to the SD Ink Jet paper you will need. Be sure you choose the INKJET paper as the various other items cannot benefit this Instructable. These sheets are available 8 1/2 X 11 ins.
COMPUTER and IMAGING SOFTWARE
You'll need an application to print your pictures to your SD report. I prefer Adobe InDesign to generate my own. Many computer systems include an imaging program put in. Be sure to format with 8 1/2 X 11 ins.
It is necessary that you use an InkJet printer since this is how the images tend to be utilized in the report. I personally use a Canon MX410 and it also works perfectly.
SCISSORS or CUTTING TOOLS
You need to reduce your images out from the report before preparing all of them. I take advantage of scissors, X-acto knives and paper stamps as required. Based assembling your shed, you might need one or all three resources. That will be your decision. In addition utilize a regular opening punch to generate a hole for SDs that I would like to string into necklaces or earrings, They are the perfect size after cooking.
OVEN or TOASTER OVEN
I have some toaster range that i bought for $5.00 at a storage sale, it works ideal for this project. I will suggest making use of the tray inside range or a cookie sheet for the cooking area range.
I line the bottom of the cookie sheet with white card stock report so that it does not get dirty from cookie sheet. When I destination another sheet of card stock on the Dinks before We cook all of them. SDs will curl throughout the cooking process and also the card stock helps to keep all of them flat also to lower altering their particular measurements.
SPATULA or PIE SERVER
I prefer a cake offering device to flatten my SDs once they have cooked. This can help them to keep flat while trying to cool off.
