Here’s a few easy steps to make a shrinkart key ring for Mothers Day:

Step 1: Draw a unique Mothers Day artwork on a shape that will be easy to cut out.  In the example below we used a heart cookie cutter to draw the heart and then drew our own lettering inside the artwork.  Another favourite is tracing the child’s hands.
