Bacon Makes Great Shrinky Dink


Last night I went to the monthly craft night at the Creative Treehouse in Bellevue. I am not really a craft kind of guy, but it turned out to be a great time. I met a lot of new bacon lovers and learned a new skill called Shrinky Dink.

The craft of Shrinky Dink was invented in the 70’s and every major toy maker had kits you could buy. Now the kits are no longer on store shelves and you have to find the magic Shrinky Dink plastic in your trash. That’s right, if you find plastic with a #6 recyclable symbol on it you can Dink it. There was a post about it on so you too can start Dinking your trash.

I have a lot of ideas for my new craft. I want to make some bacon key chains, earrings, and more. I just need to find some #6 plastic. If you tried this retro craft feel free to share what you did in the comments section.
