Shrink Heart Charm

Project Description: Create a unique heart-shaped charm that can be used as a pendant, keyring, drink charm, ornament, tag, or a zip pull tab using Grafix Metallic Shrink Film.

Designed by: Kay Molyneux

Difficulty: Easy


Steps to Make This:

  1. Cut two rectangle shapes with one end rounded, one in silver and one gold, 4 ¼” (115mm) x 2 5/8” (70mm).
  2. Cut 7 equal, 3/8″(10mm) strips into the arch shape starting on the squared side towards the rounded side.
  3. Place one shape over the other at 90° and weave the strips together in an under and over pattern. (This can be a little fiddly, take care when handling the film to prevent it tearing).
  4. When finished weaving, place a drop of glue between strips at the pointy end and clip in place until secure. (The woven heart may be bowed, this can be expected. Trim any excess to neaten.)
  5. Punch a hole.
  6. Place the design on a baking tray between the non-stick linings cover with another tray. Note: the heart should not move too much during the shrinking but it will need some room to move or it will not shrink at all.
  7. Bake as to the instructions on the packaging.
  8. Depending on how you’d like to use the charm you can add a ribbon, chain, or attach to a zipper.
