Shrink plastic

Categories: , , ,

Make homemade shrinky dinks out of old deli or bakery containers.

First of all I have to say — save your #6 plastic containers (like the clear containers from the salad bar). Save the whole container, even the textured sides and bottoms. It all works and flattens out nicely. The ridges on the sides give a nice space to color!


Color one side of the shape with permanent marker. The color becomes more intense once shrunk. If you are wanting to attach your shape to something don't forget to punch a hole before placing in the oven.
