June Challenge: Shrink Art

Do you remember making Shrinky Dinks as a kid? Color a design onto a special weight of plastic, put it in the oven, watch the plastic curl and shrink. 

Well, I found a source for shrink plastic. I distributed a sheet to each AuralArtist. Now it's up to each of us to come up with a fun idea. I've added some interesting choices to our Pinterest board. I'm particularly enchanted with this fish in a bowl.

Finding a way to incorporate our themes might be easy, like a heart bracelet.

Or maybe we'll choose to make something "practical" like these buttons. (The giraffes are adorable).

If you've misplaced your plastic, or want to make some shrinky dinks on the cheap, you can use #6 recyclable food trays. Check out the tutorial on the Rust and Sunshine blog.

If any of our readers want to join us in this June challenge, let us know. We'd love to have you play along!
