Wine Glass Charms and Napkin Rings Using Shrinky Dinks
As a kid we always had Shrinky Dinks. Well, I found out that Shrinky Dinks sell printable sheets, what a neat idea!! Fall is right around the corner I thought I could make personalized labels for drinks or napkins. I first made and printed out the image, cut the shape out that I wanted and added a hole punch to the top (it's important to add the hole before you shrink it).
Then it's time for the fun part, watching your Shrinky Dinks Shrink! I put them in the oven and watched them curl and move all over the place.
Once it cools and is all done I added a ring and a ribbon to attach it to a wine glass.
It also works as a cute napkin ring
There are so many ideas you could come up with using this paper. I also made a necklace with the names of my kids.
This was so fun and I am looking forward to using it again!!
