Shrinky Dinks

Permanent Markers or Color Pencils
Baking Sheet
Parchment Paper

Shrinky Dink Plastic

Draw or pick a pattern.
Tape Shrinky Dink plastic to the pattern.

Color the picture.

Outline the picture with a permanent marker.

Cut out the picture.

If you want to hang Shrinky Dink, punch a hole in it before baking.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place plastic color side up on baking sheet.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Bake for 1 to 3 minutes depending on thickness of the baking sheet.
DO NOT go anywhere.  Watch through oven window as plastic curls up and lays flat.  After your design flattens out, give it 30 seconds more then remove from oven.

Remove designs from baking sheet with parchment paper and allow to cool. (Approximately 15 seconds.)

Your Shrinky Dink is now ready to use.
