Coolest Father's Day: Personalised Keychain Tutorial

With Father’s Day right around the corner, We’ve been thinking about easy-to-make gifts for Dads. This one is really funny and can be personalized with photos of your family members. Using a Shrinky Dink Kit, we turned Moses and Roman into miniature pins and keychains.

-Shrinky Dink Kit
-Photo of Your Child
-Super Glue
-Tie Tack Backings
-Keychain Key Rings

Step 1: Size the photos on your computer.  You want it to be about 200% bigger than the size you’d like your Shrinky Dink to be.
Step 2: Print the images directly onto the plastic Shrinky Dink sheets.
Step 3: Cut out the images. Leave a little bit of paper at the top to punch a hole through for the keychains.
Step 4: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Step 5: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay out your Shrinky Dinks.
Step 6: Bake for 3-5 minutes.
Step 7: Let cool.
Step 8: Super glue on the tie tack backings and attach the key rings.
