Shrinky Pins for St. Patty's

So I thought I should have a little something for St. Patty's Day.
And look at what  
has for FREE! 
I printed out the cute subway art on to shrinky plastic. It's about 4" tall before heating it. See the picture has one already shrunk on top of a full size one? I also used my corner rounder punch to round the corners.

 
Then I used my embossing heat tool to shrink it. I also have a wood print block covered in foil to make sure it's nice & flat when I'm done shrinking it.


I have to tell ya it's really hard to take a photo while you're blowing hot air on a shrinky plastic pin, so I use a chop stick to hold it down and I use a shoe box lid to kind of help keep things in place.


Shrinking......


Shrinking......


Shrinking....


And smack it flat!


Add a little pin to the back and...ready for St. Patrick's Day!
