I saw a tweet the other day from Sarah announcing that she’d made a Shrinky Dink dog tag from a QR codes she’d made at QRStuff.com so I emailed her for some more information.

The process I followed to make my dog tags was as follows:

  1. Create a vCard QR code with your contact details at www.qrstuff.com.
  2. Download the QR code image and enlarge it to 3 times the desired finished size.
  3. I hand traced it onto some Shrinky Dinks plastic although they’ve got an InkJet printer version now.
  4. Cut out desired shape and punch a hole in it.
  5. Bake it as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Insert a jump ring into the hole and thread some bead chain through jump ring.
  7. Attach to dog.
