How to Make DIY Handprint Keychains

Materials Needed:

  • Shrink Film
  • Multi-Color Ink Pad
  • Sparkle Embossing Powder
  • Hole Punch
  • Parchment Paper
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Key Rings


  1. Start by placing the shrink film on a table.
  2. Have the kids press their hands against a rainbow ink pad.
  3. Have them firmly press it against the plastic.
  4. Over the wet ink, shake embossing powder and tap off excess.
  5. Cut around the edge of the handprint, leaving a little space.
  6. Use a hole punch and make a hole at the top.
  7. Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  8. Bake according to the shrink film package directions.
  9. Add charms or key rings!

*Because the film shrinks, it may curl. Take an oven mitt to press it flat before it hardens.
