Rainbow themed Shrinky Dinks!



I found out about Shrinky Dink two weeks ago when browsing Pinterest and immediatialy thought that using it would be a perfect fit for Share a Rainbow Day ideas!

I've never tried it before as I can't remember having it in my country, Brazil, when I was a kid. WOW! To watch that piece of shrink plastic into the oven getting smaller and harder and then becoming a 3D trinket to treasure forever it's soooooo fun!

To celebrate Share a Rainbow Day, I created a kawaii inspired rainbow clip art to be downloaded for free!





Supplies Needed (Affiliate links for your convenience):

How to prepare: 
Print out the template.
After printing it, trace the outlines with a fine tip Sharpie.
I filled in all of the details with different supplies (check out pictures). Each brand/type has different instructions about the best side to paint.

Once the paint was completely dry, I used scissors to cut out my rainbows. When cutting out images, leave a little extra space around your designs for shrinking. To make charms or jewelry, use a hole punch to make a hole at the top of your design before baking.

Instructions on how to bake can be found on the product package.

Then have fun sharing your rainbow Shrinkies! Some ideas: give to friends, prepare necklaces, leve them on tress, inside library books, snail mail them to a friend!
