New Cricut Circle Cartridge Charmed - Making Shrinky Dinks

I recently rejoined the Cricut Circle Group. This year's newest cartridge is called Charmed.
It is used with the new universal overlay. The handbook is a new 3-1/2"x3-1/2" size.(Sold Seperately)
The new box size is 3-3/4"x4" box.

This cartridge images are designed to make charms. I received my cartridge yesterday and couldn't wait to get started making Shrinky Dink Charms.  I love Halloween images so I made these 3 charms for Halloween to test everything out. I am so happy with the results!!

These charms were cut at 4".
I used Frosted Shrinky Dink Material
I colored the Spinder and Pumpkin with Sharpie Markers
I colored the Ghost with a white colored pencil.
They were all cut on the Imagine machine at 4" real dial size multi cut 3.
When I cut the shrinky dink material I put the side you color face down on the mat.
I heated the oven to 350 degrees. I placed them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
I didn't time it. I just waited for them to shrink and then flatten out again.
Then removed from oven. It probably took a minute or two.

They finished out at:
Pumpkin - 2" wide - 1-1/2 Long
Spider - 2-1/8" Wide - 1-3/4" Long
Ghost - 1-1/2" Long - 3/4" wide (hand to hand)
I can't wait to make more charms with my Granddaughter!! I had to test it out first though.
Everything went perfectly!!
This is the packaging from the Shrinky Dink Material.
Happy Crafting!!
