This is what a friend and I spent New Year's Eve doing. And it was the best New Year's Eve ever!


First we started with Shrinky dink Paper (at Michael's or Hobby Lobby). And then we started to draw our designs on it.


After we drew our designs, we colored them in, cut them out, and punched a hole in one of the petals.  Remember.  This stuff shrinks a LOT.

Then we went on to bake them as directed. and this is how small they got.



After they cooled, we fastend some basic earring hooks to them and voila!

Here's my friend's color:


We also did trees:



And here's two I glued on top of each other and made a magnet

Yep, the fish actually is a design that came with the Rose Art shrinky dinks package.  We bought magnets to stick on the back.

You bake it at 325 for just a couple minutes on a flat baking sheet.  You have to watch it.  After it curls all up it will flatten back out.  After it flattens back out all the way you bake it 30 seconds longer.  leave it alone until it cools a few minutes.

You use colored pencils to draw on the rougher side of the paper.  We heard that you can use markers on the glossy side, but we didn't like how it came out.  Also be sure to bake with colored side up!
