Mini Ornament Tag or Key Chain

Omayra, Ornament, KNK

I wanted to try shrink film with my KNK Groove-e and I love it. The results were better than expected. With the Shrink Film, I wanted to make a mini ornament to use on gifts or Christmas cards but these ornaments can be used on small Christmas trees if you would like or as a key chain. The machine cut it so nicely, now it is time to use your imagination to see what else we can make with the KNK Groove-e and shrink film.

It is not hard to do it but a lot of fun.

Materials:

Settings (Maxx Air):

  • F = 45
  • V = 150
  • P = 3

Steps:

  1. I chose an ornament design from the Gallery of MTC software.
  2. Re-size your design 50% larger than the size you want your ornament to be  Omayra, Ornament, Shrink paper
  3. Cut your design with your cutter machine
  4. Take a cookie pan and put parchment paper on top of it
  5. Place your cut out on top of the wax paper and cover it with another parchment paper
  6. If you are using a Heat gun to shrink it, start heating the cut out evenly until it shrinks
  7. If you are using the Oven, Preheat oven to 350F
  8. Bake for approximately 2-3 minutes
  9. Do not remove from oven until piece is flat.

  1. LOL, yes Michele. It is Awesome, you will love it. Now, I am trying to make some key Chain for the anniversary but it is a challenge for me because I am pretending too much with the design that I want to use, LOL

    • Sandy, I bought Shrink Film by Grafix at Joann. It is like a thin plastic that you can bend like a paper but when you heat it, it shrink and turn very hard. So whatever design you want to make with it you have to do it before apply iy to it.
