Feel which side of the shrink foil is smooth – you colour onto the NON SMOOTH SIDE.

Colour your shrink foil (you may wish to make your own drawing or just to colour the full shrink foil and then cut it into pieces).

Cut around your drawn shape or cut into a shape you like.

Pre heat the oven on 150 degrees.

Pop into the oven with the coloured part to the top (SMOOTH SIDE ON THE BOTTOM).

The shrink foil will curl up.

Once it has uncurled itself (approx. 10 seconds) that’s it ready.

Open the oven and let the craft work dry on a drying rack.

Once dry you could superglue a magnet, a brooch pin or a earring pin onto it - and wear it with joy!

If you make one of these, please send us a photo!
