Yoooooooo I made a tutorial 
Sorry it sucks orz
Also sorry for those wishing for art tutorials ; u ; Although I don't really feel qualified to give any kind of art advice, I've realized that making tutorials isn't that hard?? xD haha
If there is anything you are ITCHING to know leave a comment and I'll mozy my way around to making something potentially, or at least answering it for you. 

Here are some links to places to buy supplies for cheap:

:bulletblue:Graphix Shrink Film can be ordered from here. So far, it's the place that you can get it for the cheapest I've seen. 
:bulletgreen:Bells from this tutorial were ordered from eBay here.
:bulletblue:Lariats were also from eBay, here.

The rest, except for the printer, were bought from local craft stores. In my case Micheal's. 

If anything is unclear or you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Have fun making these!

Thanks for the tutorial! I have a question though. I bought the paper and I'm using it but for some reason they curl up into like a flower. Like just little curves on the side the edges heat up faster then the center so it curls up into like a weird reeses cup looking thing. I've tried different temperatures and different amounts of time and it all does the same thing. Can you guess what's going on? thank you.

Thanks for the comment! The "Reese's cup" shape during baking is normal, it happens to me too. You just have to wait for them to uncurl, that's all. This may take varying amounts of time depending in the size of your pieces, but the film naturally distorts itself in impossible shapes before returning to a completely (or almost) flat piece. Once it has uncurled, you may turn off the heat and remove it from the oven. :)

You use white or Matte film then? :) Would this work for clear or black as well? :) And of course for the option that you don't use? :)

To my knowledge, the inkjet shrink film only comes in white or clear. Here I used white.
Any would be fine, as long as you make sure that it's the inkjet kind !
