Trek to Africa with Shrink Plastic

This bookmark was made for a swap that required the use of shrink plastic as an element to an African themed bookmark.  I had so many problems with my shrink plastic.  I started by using my heat gun to shrink the giraffe and all I got was a balled up mess so my husband offered to bake it for me.  He baked then flattened it out with a pan to get this result.  I have seen some beautiful jewelry made with shrinky dink, but I  I need more practice.  What are your secrets to using shrink plastic?

The giraffe and papers were cut out with Cricut Expression - Destinations cartridge
