Shrink Film Jewelry

Lesson #21831

Use Shrink Film to create unique jewelry.
Adult supervision recommended.

Grade Level:

Shrink Film jewelry is easy and fun to make. Student's love wearing their own creations and the pieces make great Mother's Day gifts. The sample shown here was done with the Triangle Die. Geometric shapes are fun to use and can tie in with math lessons, but ANY large Ellison die can be used to create fun jewelry!

Create one-of-a-kind jewelry using Shrink Film for any occasion.

15662-LG-Ellison SureCut Die - Triangle - Large

Supplies Used: Clear Shrink Film, Colored Pens, Colored Pencils, Earring Holders, Hand Punch, Nail Buffer, Necklace Chain, Oven, Permanent Markers, Ribbon, Scissors, Toaster Oven

The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut a large Triangle or other shape from Clear Shrink Film for each student.
  2. Use permanent markers or colored pencils to color and decorate the design. If colored pencils are used, use a nail buffer to slightly rough up the Shrink Film surface before coloring. This helps the pencil color adhere better (Figure A).
  3. Punch a hole in the Shrink Film die-cut where a chain, ribbon or earring hanger will come through (Figure B).
  4. The teacher will preheat oven or toaster oven to 250 degrees and place the Shrink Film in the oven when ready.
  5. Watch for jewelry to shrink and remove from the oven.
  6. Allow artwork to cool, then add chain, ribbon or earring hanger as needed (Figure C).
