Craft enthusiast Sara Bir shows how to shrink artwork into custom-made trinkets.
Craft enthusiast Sara Bir shares a technique that uses shrinking craft materials to save artwork and pictures.
The finished product can be used to make refrigerator magnets, keychains, necklaces and Christmas ornaments. This is a great way to save kids’ artwork. Be sure to use simple shapes when cutting out the image before baking because the material is brittle.
If you are using words in the design, they will end up reversed on the sheet of paper. To avoid this, trace the words on a sheet of paper using a permanent marker, and the images will bleed through. Turn the paper over and trace the reverse side onto the shrinking sheet.
If you want to hang the image, use a hole punch and make the hole before baking the image.
