Project Description: Get crafty with the Crafty Chica using Grafix Shrink Film to create quick and easy Shrinkable Pins! A great craft for gifts, backpacks, or just something special for yourself… the possibilities are endless.

Designed by: Kathy Cano-Murillo

Difficulty: Easy


  • Grafix White Shrink Film
  • Heart-Shaped Punch
  • Variety of Sharpie Colors
  • Heating Tool
  • Spatula or Wooden Block
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pin Backings
  • Dimensional Glaze
  • Rhinestones or Glitter

Steps to Make This:

  1. Use a large heart-shaped punch to cut out shapes from the Grafix White Shrink Film.
  2. Then use the variety of Sharpie colors to create a fun design and color in the empty spaces. For an added pop you can use a metallic or silver Sharpie to color the outline of your heart.
  3. Follow the instructions on the back of the Shrink Film package on shrinking the film using the Heating tool. (Use a spatula or wooden block to flatten the film if it doesn’t lay flat after baking).
  4. After the film is cool use the hot glue gun on the back of your design to attach the pin and backing.
  5. Then add a thick coat of Dimensional Glaze to your design.
  6. Lastly, you can add rhinestones or glitter to your design.
