Directions

 

Prepare shrink plastic by sanding both sides of the sheet. Wipe off the excess dust 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 down.

 

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 side.
