Instructions

Click on Printables and print the daisy images onto Shrinky Dink inkjet sheets to start. Please READ THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY for your particular package of shrink paper, as they may vary. For example, You may to change your printer setting to transparency and low ink output and lighten your image. Just make sure you do exactly what it tells you to when printing. There, that was the hardest part. After you have your images printed and then cut out, you are ready for the oven. Put your images on a foil-lined cookie sheet, but again you should do whatever the package instructions recommend.

If you have kids around your house, make sure they get to watch the shrinking magic. It’s the little things in life, what can I say? Look at how much brighter (and smaller) they are after you shrink them. Love!

Next, coat each flower with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic . This makes them super shiny and protects the images. When that is dry, layer the flowers on top of each other and use some Zots glue dots to affix them in place. You can use a glue gun or other glue you have lying around if you prefer.You can put the three different sized flowers together alternating the colors or you can do it however it suits your fancy.

Editors Note: We have supplied you with a couple of the flower printables but more sizes are available at ChicaandJo.com.
