Make your own Shrinky Dinks! Use disposable plastic party cups and Sharpie Markers. Just be sure the cups are marked with the #6 in the recycle triangle on the bottom; this is the same type of plastic that Shrinky Dinks use. Bake at 350 on a protected cookie sheet til they melt then flatten (check in about 30 second increments)
