Phew, I survived one week of crafting. Loved it. Wished if i had more time & energy to craft more.
Today’s craft is Shrinky dink, and it is amazingly simple 2 ingredient craft. All you need is:
- No. 6 plastic
- sharpie or permanent marker
- tracing paper, If you are tracing it from somewhere
- and scissors
- I also used foil paper to make small tray
Trace a design or do a free-hand drawing on a paper, trace it on 6 no. plastic using a sharpie, (usually the plastic lids of foil trays are No. 6 plastic.) Color it, and cut it.
Make a small tray using a foil sheet (it is better than using a regular cookie sheet) and place the cut design on it and bake it at 350 degrees for 2 mins or till it curls up and straighten back again. take out, let it cool (if it’s not straight gently press it for few seconds right after you take it out). It shrinks 3-4 times the original piece and hardens.
I intended to use it as a key chain so I cut a small hole before baking it.
Once it is cool, use a intended. I only used a black sharpie but colored markers can also be used for a variety of objects.
I made another pattern as well.
