Homemade Christmas Gifts: Shrinky Dink Photo Ornaments


What could be more fun
and more personal
than Christmas Ornaments
with family photos?!

I was SO EXCITED
when I found ink jet printable
shrinky dink film
at our local craft store (Michaels).

I got to work making ornaments
for teachers, bus drivers,
grandmas, and myself!


The Mini-Saurus and her sassy self
in her red glitter shoes.
(made one for me
and one for grandma)

You have to read the directions
and adjust your printer
color settings
to dilute the color and crank up the contrast.

I trimmed my corners of my film
with my scrapbooking corner rounder punch.

I used a star shaped hole punch
for most of the ornaments.

After they baked in the oven,
I used gold craft wire,
needle nose wire pliers, and
assorted glass beads from my
collection to make the "hangers"
