Craft: Shrinky Dink Key Chains for Dad

Craft: Shrinky Dink Key Chains for Dad

I remember making Shrinky Dinks® as a kid, I loved to watch my creations curl up and shrink like magic and once they were done have a pocket sized treasure I created.  When I found out they still made Shrinky Dink® paper, I was so excited to share the magic with my own kids!  For our first creations, we decided to make something special for Father's Day.  My kids had a blast making these, I think everyone's favorite was my daughters hand, we traced her life size hand and the end result was a tiny handprint the size of a doll.  My kids got a kick out of it!  They are so excited to give their dad a gift they created all by themselves for Father's Day!

What you'll need

  • Clear Shrinky Dink® Paper (found at most craft stores)
  • Permanent Markers
  • Hole Punch
  • Brown Paper Bags
  • Key Chain Rings


I found Shrinky Dink® paper at Michael's Craft Store.

How to make it

Preheat oven to 325°.  Begin by outlining desired shape onto Shrinky Dink® paper with black permanent marker.  Once desired design is achieved, flip paper over and use colored permanent markers to color inside design.

Cut out your creation and use a standard hole punch to create a hole where key chain ring will go.  

Cut out a piece of the brown paper bag large enough to place Shrinky Dink® creation onto.  Place the paper bag onto cookie sheet and then lay Shrinky Dink® on top of paper bag with the colored side facing up.  Cook for 1-3 minutes, or until Shrinky Dink® has curled up and then laid down flat for at least 30 seconds.  Remove from oven, let cool for 10-15 seconds.  

Once your creation has cooled, add key chain ring.
