Welcome to day three of Our Daily Bread Designs' one year anniversary celebration!!! Don't forget to check out the ODBD blog every day to see what's happenin'!!! (Psst....the scavenger hunt is still going on....don't forget to play!)
Check out Chris' blog to see more of her classy creations.....dang, that girl is good!!! Chris will be featuring a lot of the new items from the ODBD store....don't miss it!
TODAY IS THE DAY FOR MY VERY FIRST TUTORIAL!!! I will show how easy it is to use Polyshrink, the grown-up version of Shrinky-Dinks! I never knew there was a difference in shrinkable plastic, but once I tried Polyshrink, I will never go back to another brand. The items you make keep their shape perfectly and do not warp!!! Anyhoo...here we go!
Supplies you will need:
Permanent Ink (I chose Stazon)
Markers (Permanent if possible)
Cutting System, punches, scissors, etc.
Heat tool or your oven
Step One: Using your sanding block, lightly sand horizontal and vertical stripes on a sheet of Polyshrink. This helps the ink to adhere to the slick surface.
Step Two: Stamp your image(s) onto the sanded side of the Polyshrink. I stamped the flowers close to the edge in order to use a punch.
Step Three: I used the Creative Memories' Cutting System to cut out the stamped verse. If you choose to make a tag, or pendant, etc., this would be the time to punch a hole. After shrinking the plastic, the hole remains, although smaller. I usually use a 1/4" hole punch, but for this project....no punchie!
Step Four: I used a scalloped circle punch for the flower images...wait until you see how cute they are when they're finished!!! You can also cut the image out with scissors or exacto knife if you choose.
Step Five: Color your image(s) if desired. Permanent type markers are preferred to insure that the color doesn't rub off after heating, however, it's fine to experiment with whatever you have on hand....even colored pencils!
Step Six: Bring on the heat!!! Since I had multiple items, I used my toaster oven instead of my heat tool. Both work fine, but the little suckers can get away from you when you use your heat tool on them!!! ***Note: most children and some husbands :) like to watch the baking process!!! Don't worry......they always curl up like that, but settle right down. It only takes a few minutes for the baking process. If they are a little curly, you can press down with an acrylic block while they are still warm. If they are TOTALLY out of shape, you haven't heated them enough.
Last step: Finish your project with your fun little charms!!!! Have fun! Don't forget to pick up your Polyshrink supplies at the ODBD store today!!!

Thanks for the tutorial Angella. I had no idea polyshrink was so easy. I've heard about it but never knew how it was done. Thanks for sharing you beautiful project. Sing to the Lord has always been the set closest to my heart although there are a couple of other that come close. Thanks to all on the team for sharing your inspiration and sense of fun and praise for God that lightens all our hearts.
Peace and blessings sister stamper - Jean
TFS I have never tried this & have always wanted to, never knew there was anything different than Shrinky Dink!
Thanks for sharing this tutorial. I had fun following it and have bring out my polyshrink again.
I love this card. I will have to get some of the Polyshrink and try this. I know my 5 year old grandson would love to watch it shrink. I would love to win the Sing to the Lord set. My whole family is a musical family and love to sing in church.
Wow! great tutorial . . . so much easier than I thought . . . Thx for the inspiration!
What FUN!!! I want to try it!!! How long did you heat them for??? Thanks for the chance at the blog candy...
I will have to add polyshrink to my list. That tutorial was interesting.
I love this stamp set and you made a wonderful card with your polyshrink embellishments. Thanks for the great tutorial.
Thank you for such a great tutorial! I have both Polyshrink and shrinky dinks and very seldom use them! Your tutorial makes it so easy I may drag them out and use them! Your card is so beautiful and I love the sing to the Lord set! I don't have any ODBD stamps and would just love to win them! Thanks for the opportunity! Hugs Lori R.
Great tutorial! I have always used Shrinky Dinks Rough & Ready because it is already sanded on one side. It is interesting to know that there is a difference. Is Polyshrink thicker, or does it shrink more or less? I would love to know more about how they compare!
yeah, i finally got to comment, thanks for guiding me angella, and the polyshrink looks nice in clear, i like the card and the tutorial, elaina
That was a cool idea. I think that I will need to buy some of that Polyshrink stuff.
Great Offering of Blog Candy, I love it!
Oh my word Angella!! This is an outstanding tutorial and the card you made is beyond divine!! I'm speechless!!
Thank goodness I still have my polyshrink it. I told me husband...never going to need to clean my room...I NEED EVERYTHING!!!
