Project Description: Create some out-of-this-world embellishment to use as keychains for your purse, bags or backpacks. Use Grafix Celestial Artist Series Shrink Film designed by Gina Lee Kim.
Steps to Make This:
- You can start by coloring in the designs on the Artist Series Shrink Film or like I did cut out the designs and then color which helps me to avoid any smearing while I color. Remember to create an attachment hole using a standard hole-puncher before you bake. OPTIONAL: Using an Exacto knife, consider cutting out a few stars out of the star cluster design.
- Color with permanent markers (i.e. Sharpie pens or alcohol ink pens). TIP: Many highlighters and neon water-soluble markers will work surprisingly well so test out the supplies you have.
- Shrink the film according to package instructions. You can use a conventional oven, toaster oven or heat gun. TIP: If the film curls, you can gently flatten the pieces with a spatula then let cool.
- Gather your keychain or jewelry making supplies (here, I used Tim Holtz’ Idea-ology Swivel Clasp Chains). Attach to your colorful celestial designs and adorn on your zippers!
