Materials needed to make Shrinky Dink pins
To save time, you can use printable shrink film and print these designs directly onto the shrink paper!

Step 1

Use our free downloadable template to make Valentine's Day-themed fashion pins!

Start by printing out the Valentine’s Day pins template. Place a piece of shrink paper over the template and trace each shape using a marker.

Step 2

Using shrink paper, you can make your own faux enamel pins!

Next, fill in the designs with a thin layer of acrylic paint. Keep the layer light to achieve a smooth finish. High-quality paints are recommended for richer color with fewer layers.

Step 3

Make It: Valentine's Day Pins

Allow the paint to dry, then go over the edges of the designs to redefine them. Add any desired lettering over the paint.

Step 4

Shrinky Dinks can be transformed into lookalike enamel pins - learn how with this step-by-step tutorial.

Carefully cut out each design from the shrink paper, taking your time to avoid ripping it.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 325º F and line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the designs on the sheet without overlapping and bake for 1-3 minutes. The paper will curl and shrink, becoming thicker.

Step 6

DIY It - Valentine's Day Pins

After cooling, use hot glue to attach the pin backs. For added protection, consider sealing them with a finisher spray. And that’s it!
