Metallic Shrinkable Holiday Brooch

Project Description: Bring in some cheer for yourself or your loved ones with a handmade metallic shrinkable holiday brooch with Grafix Metallic Shrink Film.

Designed by: Rebecca Goodwin

Difficulty: Easy


  • Grafix Metallic Shrink Film
  • Fine Grit Sand Paper
  • White Colored Pencil
  • Permanent Marker/Archival Ink Pen
  • Scissors
  • Clear Dimensional Gloss Medium
  • Pin Back Bar with Clasp
  • Glue/Adhesive

Steps to Make This:

  1. Lightly rub the sandpaper in two directions across Grafix Metallic Shrink Film. This will allow the colored pencil to adhere to the surface.
  2. With a permanent marker or pen, draw or trace a frame approximately twice the size you’d like your finished brooch to be. (If you would like a brooch that is two inches high, draw the frame approximately four inches high, etc.)
  3. Color in the center of the frame with the white colored pencil.
  4. Draw or trace a fun character or scenery on the white area inside the frame, like a bear.
  5. Bake the Shrink Film brooch according to package instructions.
  6. After the film has cooled, apply a coat of clear dimensional medium or gloss sealer for shine and protection. Set aside and leave undisturbed for several hours to dry.
  7. Use a strong adhesive to attach a pin back to the back of the brooch.
