  • Shrink paper
  • Coloring pencils and a black waterproof marker

Punch a hole in the shrink paper just above your drawing. Then cut out your drawing.

Step 3

Put your drawing in a preheated oven. After some time your drawing will start curling up. THIS IS NORMAL! Just wait a little bit longer and it will flatten out again.
