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

  1. Die-cut the Triangle Frames 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 and help the pencil color to adhere better.
  3. Punch a hole in the plastic design where a beaded chain will come through.
  4. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 250 degrees. Watch for objects to shrink. Remove when ready and cool. Be sure to follow directions for shrink film.
  5. String the beaded chain through the hole and enjoy (see Main Photo).
