Shrinky Dinks for my DGD!

My DGD has a witch costume she plays with all year long so I decided to make her some earrings and necklace with it! I priced them at the party store and cricut always comes to mind. I already had some shrinky dink material and couldn't wait to get home to figure out what I could make! This is my creation! My DIL might want to try to make and sell them! Cheap entertainment! More for me than the kids! teehee!
I used the Imagine and flood filled the witch and bat from Happy Hauntings at 3". They shrink up to about 1 1/2". The Imagine cut these like a dream. I'll warn you that you can't use a heat embossing tool because the brooms curl up but if you bake them they don't! I sealed them with Modge Podge Sealer. The black is so heavy if you don't it rubs off! Great fun! Can't wait to give them to DGD this weekend!!

Tip! When printing and cutting on Imagine, the page I used was a 8x10, and it only 2 on a page at 3". I then changed it to 10x10 and you can then get 4 on page at that size! I'm going to do the next batch on my gypsy so maybe even more on a page!! Also had to print this black in draft mode or it didn't dry! I was asked about printing a block in the printer and cutting on cricut, I tried that but it didn't dry either, but maybe it would work also on draft?!
Have a great weekend! I'll be very busy but hope to get time to submit more challenges! I may use this for my home decor submission!
