  • Shrink plastic
  • Pencil
  • Permanent fine and medium point marker
  • Colored pencils
  • Embossing gun (or oven)
  • Hole puncher
  • Ribbon
  • Photo


  1. You need pictures that are about 5×7 because they’ll shrink about 1/3rd in size. With the frosted side up, slip the photo under the sheet of shrink plastic. Trace the outlines with the pencil.

  2. If you like what you see, go over the line with the thicker marker.
  3. Fill in with colored pencils. Cut out the around the shape and punch a hole at the top.
  4. SHRINK away! It will begin to curl really fast, whatever you do, don’t let the shiny side of the plastic touch, because it will stick. Add the Crafty Chica white paint, let it dry and then add a layer of Crafty Chica Glossy Gloss Varnish.
