Here's what June had to say about her tutorial:  Shrinky Dinks? I get the strangest looks when I mention them. Way back in the dark ages, back when I was a girl...you could buy something called Shrinky Dinks, usually they were pre-printed with something, you colored them in and then baked them (had to be really careful baking over those open flames in the cave)...they shrank and voila...you have this hard plastic thing you could hang from a necklace or something...at least if you remembered to poke a hole in them BEFORE you baked them.

A few years ago I found plain sheets of Shrinky Dinks...and, of course, had to buy them. After all, now that I have an electric oven instead of the cave fires, it should be even easier...  So...the other day while rummaging on the crafty shelf, I ran across the package of them and thought...."you know...those doodles I am so addicted to doing would make a great piece of jewelry..." and thus...
