Printable Shrinky Dink Review 2017

For years I have been printing my images on Shrinky Dink to make earrings. Recently I was extremely disappointed when I purchased a new package from Micheal's Craft. Upon opening the package I immediately I noticed the paper was different, it was thinner material and less plasticy then before. Upon printing the color was completely off and green (I checked my ink on a test page and it was perfectly fine). I went ahead and heated them in the oven to be sure and was unhappy to find not only did the color not improve but the images had completely warped. I had to promptly return my purchase for a full refund from Micheal's, who to my amazement has know about the issue for quite a while but still carries the product. Here is an image of the original Shrinky Dink vs the new product. It hard to tell from the photo but there is a lot of distortion and a big problem with the uniformity of the shrinkage rate as well as a problem with the color change.
After doing some research I found many reviews from angry consumers complaining about the change in the printable Shrinky Dinks. It seems a new company, Alex Brands, has taken over the beloved Shrinky Dinks last year and has cut corners and destroyed it's own product. I strongly advise you do not purchase this product unless they go back to the original material.

Free Adult Bean Bag Chair Pattern




Here is the lovely Aimee sitting on her newly made Squirtle Pokemon bean bag chair. It takes about 2-3 meters of fabric and 2 bags of Styrofoam beans, bought at Wal-Mart.
Cut 6 side panels, a top and a bottom. Sew the side panel together leaving a hole in one of the seams to turn it out and add filling. (You can also add a zipper here too.) Add on the top, then the bottom. Stuff. Done. Side note: I added some arms and a round squirtle head to spice thing up.
