A Shrinky Dink Mini Card

Check out my Daughter's post and Giveaway HERE.

Hi Everyone!

I have a quick Thanksgiving mini card to show off!

This is a 4" square card.
The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.
The Harvest ribbon is 3 Girl JAM.
The Turkey is a SHRINKY DINK!
I used Shrinky Dink material and cut the turkey at 4" from Celebrate with Flourish.  I colored it in with colored pencils and popped it in a 350* oven for 90 seconds.  

So fun!
We were shrinky dink making fools at our house!
I remember doing them as a kid so it was really fun to see the excitement on my girls' faces when they did their first one.

A few Thanksgiving Challenges:


  1. Wow, I just love that turkey. He really has some nice color. Your ribbon is perfect. Really nice card. Thanks for sharing.
