Shrinky Dink Handprint Keychain

Shrinky Dink Handprint Keychain

These little hands are a sweet treasure and would make a great gift for any parent or grandparent. A bonus was the joy my kids had watching their hand cut-out shrink to the tiny size of a fairy, as my daughter put it.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. shrink form sheets
  2. permanent marker
  3. hole punch
  4. key chain ring
  5. scissors
  6. parchment paper
  1. Plain shrink form sheets are available in any craft store and are a great way for kids to personalize little treasures.

  2. I traced both my children's hands on a shrink form sheet.

  3. Emma wrote her name right on her hand using a permanent marker. Next, I helped to cut the hands out.

  4. I used a large hole punch to make a hole for the key ring. If you don't have a large punch just use the standard size several times to make a larger hole.

  5. Onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet they went and into the oven. I followed my shrink form instructions and placed them in a 300 degree oven for just a minute or so. They curl up and then flatten out and that's how you know they're done.

  6. Look how small they got! The kids loved this!

  7. They fit right into my hand. My perfect treasures.
