How-To: Shrink Plastic Flower Pins


These adorable glass head pins were created with the help of a craft punch, some shrink plastic and colored markers.

You could certainly take this idea to the cork board by using a shorter push pin as the center, or create a small bunch of flowers to attach to a hair barrette. Once you start, I’m afraid it will be hard to stop the shrinky dink mania. Pro-tip, use a hand held heating tool instead of baking these in the oven.



This project was spotted over at Craft Test Dummies. Head on over for the full how-to.
