Shrinky-Dink Swaps

posted Feb 6, 2011, 5:23 PM by Julie Purdy /RBSU
You can buy Inky Shrink printable film sheets from  Each sheet can be used to print approximately 20 swaps.  Print your design on the Shrink Plastic and then cut out your swap (swaps should be about 2 times the size you wish for them to be when shrunk).  Punch a hole if you plan on threading them.  Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 1 minute and 45 seconds to 2 minutes.  If the designs are not completely flat, allow them to bake for up to another minute.  Let them cool for 5 minutes and remove from the cookie sheet.  The finished design can be threaded on a coil-less safety pin along with beads for an easy swap idea.
