Shrinky Dinks aren't just for kids! Just add a coat of gold to transform them into easy, chic accessories
Remember Shrinky Dinks? I recently rediscovered them, and it turns out they’re just as amazing now as they were when I was five.
I love how versatile this magical material is. It starts out thin and semi-transparent, so you can draw your own creation or easily trace an existing image to make an impressive-looking replica.

When your outline is complete, cut roughly around it to get most of the excess material out of your way.
Then, carefully cut along the outline using a small pair of scissors or an X-Acto knife.
Make sure to include a hole where your charm will attach to the necklace, and remember to make it big enough so your metal ring will fit through when it’s 1/3 its current size.
Preheat the oven to 325°, then place your cut-out in the oven on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 1–3 minutes.
If your Shrinky Dink starts to curl, fold some parchment paper over it and set a flat, heavy object (like a large pan) on top for 5–10 minutes.
