with a paper towel. Place the design under the shrink
plastic and trace
with a black permanent fine tip marker.
Cut out the design
from the shrink plastic very carefully. Cut into the curves and flip the
plastic so that you do not have to bend any of it.
Bending the plastic
can create tears in the plastic. Leave a small border around the design
when cutting it out so that the design will stand out when it shrinks
Color the design
using colored pencils. Color in decorative designs such as flowers to
the slippers if you desire. Color both sides of the shrink plastic if
you wan tit to be more vibrant.
Shrinking the plastic
– follow the manufacturer’s directions for shrinking the plastic. You
can either use a small oven or the Heat It tool
heat gun. If using
the heat gun, use a wooden chopstick or similar to help hold the plastic
sown when it is shrinking.
After shrinking, let
cool. Optional: You can paint a coat of clear glossy varnish to seal in
the colored pencils if you desire. Glue on the magnet
or pin back to either
