What You Need

Shrinkable Plastic (see Tips area for sources)
Markers or colored pencils
Rubber stamps and stamp pads, optional
Key rings or lanyard hooks
Sandpaper (sometimes included in kits)

How To Make It

Follow the manufacturer's directions for sanding the shrinkable plastic, if needed.
Using markers or colored pencils, write the child's name, grade, and teacher's name on the shrinkable plastic. This makes it easy for lost possessions to be returned to the child.
Use rubber stamps to apply a design on the shrinkable plastic. Color in the design with markers or colored pencils. Use markers or colored pencils to create an original design.
Cut out design. Using a hole punch, punch a hole in one end of the plastic. Then using the hole punch, punch the hole a few times around the first hole to make it bigger (it shrinks a LOT!)
Follow the manufacturer's directions for baking the designs.
Hang on key ring or lanyard hook, then attach to backpack or other items.


Remember that the plastic shrinks to about 1/3 of the original size. Also, one brand mentioned in their directions that shrinkable plastic tends to shrink more one direction than the other. This means that if you are making matching items (for example, earrings), you would want to lay them out on the plastic in the same direction.
You could make new "tags" for different holidays, so the child's backpack is always "in season". Enjoy!
