I absolutely loved them as a kid! As a stamper, I’ve played around with them quite a bit, too. But as a Digital Scrapbooker, it hadn’t occurred to me to use inkjet shrink sheets with creations from My Digital Studio!
Fortunately my friend Missy Shipman had a little tag she received from a demonstrator friend, and Missy shared the idea with me back in October at our Founder’s Circle Retreat.
Isn’t that sweet? I made a whole bunch of these as Christmas gifts this year, and added a little tag (out of card stock) that suggested using the personalized tags to label scissors or cell phones.
Here are the directions:
- Print and cut shrink plastic (check a craft or office supply store) to about 2 x 3-1/2″
- Use the Corner Rounder to clip corners
- Punch 3/8″ hole with Crop-A-Dile
- Shrink with Heat Tool or in oven, then add Marina Mist 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon
If you don’t recognize the Designer Series Paper on this project, it might be because this paper is only available as a Digital Download, rather than as actual paper in a Stampin’ Up! catalog. (learn more about Digital Downloads)
The paper is called Summertime Splendor (see it online).
The possibilities are endless… I could see these as charms on a bracelet, charms for cards or scrapbook pages, dog tags… too much fun!

Hi Meg! Did you run your shrinky dink paper through your printer? If so, was it easy to do and did it dry quickly? Thanks! I love looking at your blog by the way and this is a really cute idea! I’m thinking Convention gifts!!!
