Pin It Now!
I was tidying up a shelf when I found some shrink plastic. I've never used it, so I thought no time like the present. :)
Using Jet Black Staz-On Ink, I stamped my favorite image from Apothecary Art directly on the plastic, then I die cut my images using the coordinating Labels Collection Framelits and my Big Shot. I also stamped Kindness Matters from the stamp set Kindness Matters in the middle.
Although I read somewhere that you can buy frosted shrink plastic that allows you to color in your images using Stampin' Up!'s dye based Stampin Write Markers, I discovered that my plastic was NOT that type so I added some colors with Sharpies. :)
Finally, I punched a small hole using my Crop-a-Dile (always want to make sure you remember to do this prior to shrinking - if you do it afterwards your plastic may break).
I baked my keychains in a 325 oven for 10 minutes on parchment paper until they had shrunk down to about 25% of their original size. SOOOOO cute! I managed to find 1/2" keychain rings at a local store and accented them with a simple bow of Rich Razzleberry Ribbon (which I believe is retired - if you recreate this project you can try Regal Rose 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon).
I was thrilled at how these came out! TIP - I learned that you should stamp all your images the same direction on the plastic - it shrinks more one way than the other. About half my keychains were like the one above, and about half came out taller so the sentiment was really squished!
Give it a try! So much fun. And let me know if you need any supplies. :)
