A strip of shrinky-dink plastic, twisted over, held together with a tab, and baked for a few minutes produces a solid Mobius strip shrinky-dink.

. What would happen if a Möbius were shrunk to a singularity (super-shrinky-dink)? heehee . I may have taken my meds twice, tonight. ;)

But the question is -- can you cut it in half length-wise infinite times?

Ah, that's not nearly as fun, then!! Still neat though -- I've made them out of paper from boredom, but never thought of doing it with shrinky-dinks.

It is hard to get them to keep shape while they are baking.

Yeah, but even that didn't work completely, so I had to take it out while it was still warm / flexible and shape it a bit.
