Download the template to your computer and open in Adobe Reader. Print.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you are using a BrightPad, turn it on. Place the template down and then lay the shrink film over the top.

Using the permanent markers, color in the pins. Note: The markers always darken in the oven, so if in question, choose the lighter color option!

Trim excess shrink film.
