Besides the nightlights I made with Shrinky Dinks last week, I also made some magnets!
What you’ll need for ones made on the computer:
Shrinky Dink inkjet paper
computer, software like Photoshop, printer
oven preheated to 300*
paper sack cut to fit cookie sheet
paper towels for sprinkling embossing powder
magnets for the size SD you make
hot glue gun, glue
For complete instructions on making SDs print on the computer, see the previous project I did.
Here, I’ve printed out some ads for one of Av’s favorite beers onto Shrinky Dink inkjet paper:
Below, I’ve sprinkled them all over with clear embossing powder (the embossing powder melts in the oven and makes a nice, thick, clear layer over the top of the SD):
That car is so funny! I love it!
…and went through the same process (shinking in the oven, then covering with embossing powder, then back in the oven for the embossing powder to melt). Once it was cool enough to handle, I put a magnet on the back with my hot glue gun:
I also made a SD magnet with a picture I made of our cousin’s cat, and I just know that will make her *so incredibly happy* when I give it to her! I think these will be great for no-particular-occasion gift-giving!
