These are the shrink art bracelets my kiddos did at art camp this summer. (Sorry, I do not have any pictures of them with the strings attached) These are all done with colored pencils and some have a bit of sharpie for detail. I gave them free choice on their shrink art, so some of the shrink art has names, characters, or landscapes.

|You can see that even if the kids don't really press the colors they get a finished product that has great vibrant colors.|
|For the bracelets, I took a sheet of shrink paper and quartered it. I also had an edger that took the points off the corners. A regular hole punch will give you the perfect size hole to feed string through.|
|Keep a metal spatula handy to flatten before they cool.|
|I can usually get 5-6 small pieces like this in one batch (with my oven at home). You may have to play with the heat setting, but I always use 300 degrees for about 2-3 minutes.|
