2 CUT OUT THE DESIGN

3 BAKE THE DESIGNS IN THE OVEN

Follow directions on shrink plastic for baking (usually on a piece of paper for about 5 minutes at around 275 degrees).
 

4 FLATTEN THE CUTOUT

Once the pins have baked in the oven, pull them out and press down with another piece of paper for a few seconds, until cool, to get them really flat.

To protect the pins and make them waterproof, optionally spray them with a clear glaze.
 

5 GLUE THE PIN

Glue pin backs to the back of each pin with a strong jewelry-making glue. (A high temperature hot glue gun will also work, and be ready immediately.)
 

Allow the glue to dry for 6 hours.
