How to Make Shrinky Dinks Using your Printer

Shrinky Dinks

I’m a huge fan of Shrinky Dinks!  I made them as a child with my mom and I still make Shrinky Dinks today as an adult.  Melissa submitted her blog post on how to make Shrinky Dinks using her ink jet printer and I just couldn’t wait to show you.

I made Shrinky Dink pins for my Jr. League kitchen crew to wear on our ball caps. The caps are part of our uniform along with sneakers, long-sleeve t-shirts and pants.

Melissa hooked us up with a fabulous pictured tutorial with step by step instruction so you can make any design you want at home!

Personally, I’ve used Shrinky Dinks for so many things:

  1. Tip Junkie beaded bookmarks
  2. Tip Junkie blog button cuff bracelet
  3. Jane Austen shrinky dink bracelets
  4. Pride and Prejudice pendant necklace & Camp-belles Soup necklace

  1. I tried to follow this post to find the instructions on how to make your own shrinkydinks using an inkjet printer. I was unsuccessful. Could you please send me a direct link please? Thank you so much

  2. Thanks for sharing my tutorial, Laurie! I hope some of your Tip Junkies will give it a try and have as much fun as I did!

  3. I love the shrinky dink ideas! I’m going to play with it and make bookmarks for red ribbon week. I’m hoping the “dink” part can be double sided. If you know it can be double sided will you let me know? Thanks again for this great idea!
