DIY shrinky dinks

Hi guys! Today I’m going to be showing you how to make shrinky dinks from plastic containers. MAKE SURE IT IS #6 PLASTIC. Otherwise it WILL NOT WORK. 

The first thing that you’re going to do is preheat the oven to 350 degrees farenheit. This way it can preheat while you’re drawing.

Next, cut out the flat part to make a sheet and draw on it with permanent markers. You can color it too. Now, cut out your pieces individually and put them on a sheet of tin foil with the edges folded up.Put them in the oven and watch them shrink! They will curl up, but eventually flatten out again, and even if they’re not perfectly flat, you have about 10 seconds after you take them out to flatten them.
