Draw or even trace a picture onto a shrinky dink plastic sheet! Colored pencils and markers work best as coloring tools. 

Step 2: Cut it out! 

After finishing decorating your design it is time to cut out your design. If you are planning on making jewelry or key chains out of your shrinky dink it is also a good idea to punch holes into the plastic before you shrink it.

Step 3: Bringing your shrinky dink to life!

Pre-heat the oven to about 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your design on some non-stick aluminum foil and bake your design for about 1 to 3 minutes. As they begin to bake they will begin to shrink! Once you have finished baking your design remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.
