directions

draw a picture or trace one. coloring books have about any thing or craft book or calendars. Trace to sanded shrink plastic. I wand my pins to come out 3 inches across. then color with colored pencils or sharpies or both. Then bake.
You can trace each item or shade or whatever you hearts desire.

Candy, I found some of the shrink plastic that is frosted on Hobby Lobby.com. It's called Ruff N Ready shrinky dinks sheets. You don't have to sand these ones.

If you or anyone else want the link for it, I can PM it to you since I'm not sure if I can put the link in here without it being spam.

YW Candy. I don't like having to sand the other paper down.. seems like it's not even & some of the colors are darker than I want them & uneven.

Colors Will become concentrated with the shrinking, thus you may get darker colors with shrinking. I try to got lighter than I want.

Yes I found that out.. I used a marker for one & after it shrunk, I didn't like it, so decided to stay with colored pencils.

We will have 3 themes for May.
1. Mother's Day, 2. Memorial Day, 3. May Flowers.

A reminder that you may earn 2 awards per month. Post a photo and tell us how you made it. Of course we would like to see more if you make more.

We thank all who take part.
