Step 1: Paint hand and press onto the shrinky dink sheet. If you make a mistake, just wipe it with a paper towel and try again!

Step 3: Cut out the handprints leaving about 1/4 inch around the sides of the paint and hole punch at the tip of the hand in between the ring and middle finger. The hole will shrink to jump ring size to fit the handprint keychain.

Step 4: Flip back over to painted side up and bake on cookie sheet with parchment paper at 325 degrees for about 2 minutes.

Make sure to keep an eye on it while baking. It will start to curl in but then flatten again. When you see it has stopped moving, take it out and flatten it if needed with a spatula.

Note-my daughter’s hand took longer to bake while my son’s hand (bigger) took only 1 minute.

Step 5: Use a plier to pull the jump ring apart and loop through hole in handprint. Then loop through keyring. You can use mod podge to seal the paint.
