    I loved this project! Made these as part of favor bags for my son's 2nd birthday party coming up this weekend. I had some issues with curling on a few tags, but they are perfectly imperfect...thanks, Martha!

    Hobby Lobby carries White Shrinky Dinks Inkjet Plastic Sheets.
    It is about $13.00 for a pack of 6 Sheets, 8 1/2" x 11 1/2"
    But, you can get a 40% off coupon in the weekly online ads.
    I would assume Michael's would carry them as well.

    Where is the pink one? I don't see it on the template. Is the template only supposed to be two pages?

    These turned out so well! They are so cute, be sure to make [filtered word] punch big it shrinks as well. The phone numbers are so small but I can fix it!

    You can take the logo that you come up with and send it to PetQR. They will make a tag for you with your design and make it so a smart phone can scan it and go to a profile page of your pet.

    This is GREAT! I only wish I had found this before spending $15.00 at the petstore for my dogs plain tags; gonna do these anyways; they are too cute to not. Love Martha!

    Sheryl262 You could make it into a necklace or bracelet for your mom!

    This is a fantastic idea for a pretty, personalized ID tag for my mom! That sounds bad, but she asked me to look into ordering an ID tag for her to wear when she leaves the house. She's fine, but is worried about an emergency. Thank you!

    How do you change the font for these? And my cats name doesn't fit on the template.

    Love these! Now add a smartphone scannable code like PetHub.com has and you're set! Neat!

    Love it! Now double-side it and add a smartphone scannable image like PetHub has. Pretty neat!

    I love shrinky dinks and use them all the time for my cardmaking as well. Rather than baking them, I (cardmakers) use our heat embossing tool. You have to hold them in place with a pair of tweezers and they will fold inwards almost completely while shrinking. Once they are done shrinking, they will open back up and then you lay a heavy object or I use a ceramic tile, on top while it cools. So much faster. You will need a rubber mat underneath as well. Can't wait to try these ones - adorabl

    Use the ones with dark colored printing. The white printed phone numbers get lost when they shrink.

    I love shrinky dinks and will be sure to try it out!

    I was a bit disappointed with this one. They ended up distorted. Some ended way smaller than others, some didn't end up a round circles. Overall the Shrinky Dinks are disappointing and expensive.

    F.Y.I~ Buy the white printable plastic sheets. Doesn't show up on the clear!

    Hey Charmdesign,
    Question for you. I downloaded Adobe Illustrator CS4 to try to change the colors, but I lose the text boxes. Any suggestions?

  • 6 Dec, 2009

    Will all printers print on the plastic, or does it have to be a color laser or special ink? It just seems too easy to be true!

  • 6 Dec, 2009

    If you have Adobe reader it will automatically open. At the top of the document it states "Please fill out form" click on that and it makes it an editable document!

    Thanks so much will try...

    You may need to open the templates up in a designer's program. As a graphic designer, I opened the files in Adobe Illustrator to customize them.

  • 27 Jul, 2009

    I wish I could help you with the colors....but I can't even get the template to allow me to type in the names and info. Can you tell me how you did it?

  • 25 Jul, 2009

    Love these, but can I change colors of template, example pink bone?
