Step 3: Cut the shrink plastic into strips

The plastic sheets measure 8" x 10". 
 
1) For the Shrinky Dinks Ink Jet printable sheets, I cut strips about 3/8" wide lengthwise down the 10" side of both sheets of plastic. This gave me 3/8" x 10" strips to use for both the warp and weft. 
 
2) For the painted Shrinky Dink Ruff 'n Ready sheets
a) Warp sheet: place in the 10" high x 8" wide direction on the cutting mat
b) Tape both the top and bottom edges of the sheet, overlapping the tape onto the sheet by about 3/8"
c) Cut strips 1/2" wide, creating 1/2" x 10" strips for the warp.
d) Weft sheet: place in the 8" high x 10" wide direction on the cutting mat
e) Tape both the top and bottom edges of the sheet, overlapping the tape onto the sheet by about 3/8"
f)  Cut strips 1/2" wide, creating 1/2" x 8" strips for the weft.
