They should place their hand on a piece of cardstock paper. Cut out their hand and leave a little paper surrounding it!

 

Cut several thin pieces of green paper to be the stems. Paste those to the paper. Then, paste the vase down, so it’s covering the bottom of the stems.

You can also use Sharpie markers so they can write their name on the Shrinky Dink paper too. This would make a cute keepsake as well.

 

Set your keychains on a baking tray that’s covered in parchment paper. Put in the oven for just 1 minute or two! It’s done very quickly so make sure you are watching!
