Shrinky Dinks Make the Sweetest Personalized Gifts

February 15, 2019

Do you guys remember Shrinky Dinks? We recently rediscovered them and have been loving making custom fun necklaces for ourselves and as gifts. I made 2 handwritten kids name necklaces for myself and Lena has been loving making unicorn necklaces for her friends. 

We used regular Sharpie pens to draw and color in the designs. Then I helped cut them out and hole-punch holes for the string. Then we baked them on parchment paper at 325 degrees for only about 1-3 minutes until they shrunk. They are super fun to watch as they shrink in size right in front of your eyes!

 

The great part about Shrinky Dinks is that you really can't mess them up. A design that looks imperfect in a larger size will be adorable as it shrinks down and hides any imperfections. Enjoy and have fun with it!
