How to Make Shrinky Dink Charms in Ten Easy Steps by geothebio How to Make Shrinky Dink Charms in Ten Easy Steps by geothebio
quite a few people on tumblr have asked me how i make my shrinky dink charms that i sell at cons, so i decided to make a tutorial!

to see the full tutorial go here: geothebio.tumblr.com/post/6018…

feel free to make your own charms (just don't copy the design i use here) for relatively little money! if you live in the UK, shrinky dinks are virtually impossible to find in stores. the good news is, you can order them on amazon, in a variety of styles. i know some shrinky dink sheets have a rough side that is used for colored pencil use, but the sheets i used here didn't have a rough side, so i had to use sandpaper. if your sheets have a rough side, don't use sandpaper!

happy crafting!

I was wondering but how come you sand it down?

the sanding makes sure the colored pencil stays on without flaking off

just search for "shrink plastic" and then add the name of your country after that and you should be able to find some substitutes!

Around how big should the original design (on the lined paper) be? Fantastic work by the way!
