Shrinky Fun!

Welcome back to Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party.
Today I want to share a fun little craft with you that is great to make and easy to do!

shrinky earrings

To make these earrings you will need:
Shrinkle Sheet
Stamp, image or freehand design that you would like to make
Earring Clasps

First find your design. I created a mandala design through this great online mandala generator:

Once I had finished creating my mandala, I made sure it was about 7.5cm in diameter and printed it out.

Transfer the image two times on to a piece of shrinkle sheet.

Colour in your designs


Cut out and punch a hole on the top edge of each circle. Place on a baking tray.

Heat your oven to 150°C

And place your shrinkies in the oven. Standby as it goes quite quickly.

They will shrink 7 times smaller and 7 times thicker :)

Once they roll up they will also go back to lying flat, when flat remove from oven.

Once cool (they cool pretty quickly) Thread onto your earring clasps.
