DIY Photo Keychains
Learn how to turn a favorite photo into a durable keychain using printable Shrink Film! Kids can write notes or decorate the photos before shrinking for an adorable Mother's Day or Father's Day gift.
- Printable Shrink Film
- Hole Punch
- Corner Rounder optional
- Cookie Sheet and Oven parchment paper optional
Use a photo editor to size your photo to roughly 5 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide. Also lighten the photo if possible. Then print onto printable shrink film.
Cut out your photo and use a corner rounder to round the corners if desired. Use a hole punch to punch a hole near one corner of the photo.
Use Sharpies to write a message on the photo.
Photos can be cut into other shapes, such as a heart. Just be sure to punch a hole in them before baking.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place photos on it. Bake in a preheated 325 degree F oven for about 7-8 minutes, until photos have shrunk and are back to laying flat.
As soon as you remove the photos from the oven, press them flat with a spatula OR cover with parchment paper and lay a heavy book on top while they cool. Add a keychain attachment and your photo keychain is complete.
