  1. I have made a couple of projects with shrink plastic, the Cricut cuts it easily and the finished projects are so darned cute. The most important thing to remember is to cut the object large enough to allow for the shrinkage.
    Here are links to 2 of the projects I made with it:

    The plastic is very easy to color (do this before shrinking), I colored mine with colored pencils. I want to make more things with the plastic but I have been unable to find any in my area.
