Shrink Pins with Recycled Plastic step by step
Plus, I’m thinking these pins make awesome gifts for friends – just pick your bud’s favorite pin and attach it to one of the printable cards.
You will need:
- White Plastic Shrink Film – PS6
- Black Permanent Marker
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Round Brush
- Pin Backs
- Hot Glue Gun
#6 – PS: polystyrene is used in takeout food containers.
Place your cut out shapes onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in a 250˚ F oven. It will take about five minutes for your shapes to shrink completely. As they shrink they will curl up, but when they are completely shrunk they will be flat again.
Finally, after the top coat has dried, use a hot glue gun to attach pin backs to the plastic.
