Shrinky Dink film and Cricut Imagine

So, I was reading a thread on the Cricut Circle Blog about using printable Shrinky Dink film ( mine just says Shrink Plastic) with the Cricut Imagine, so of course I had to drop everything and try it, since I had some on hand that I had not tried yet. I used the Better Together and Kate's Kitchen cartridges, and set my Imagine at 3". The cuts are proportioned for whatever image they are part of on the cartridge, so all came out at different sizes. And, using a tip offered by Nadia (Check out her awesome blog HERE, see is SOOOO creative! ) and following her directions on her blog, I coated them with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel). The only thing I should have done differently was to punch the hole to hang them with a bit bigger. I think they are so cute!
