This was a joint project with Big E - she did the art and I put it together. Big E LOVES doing Shrinky Dinks...I mean LOVE. She asks me every day if she can do them so I knew I needed to figure out a craft that she could enjoy more than just that day that she created it. Enter a flower punch & bracelet blank!
|make sure your flower is about 2" in size so that when it shrinks you can still see the picture|
|punch holes with a standard hole punch, otherwise when it shrinks the hole will be too small|
|shrink according to package directions & seal with clear nail polish|
|gather the charms, jump rings & chain (or bracelet blank like I have shown)|
|twist open your jump rings, don't pull them open...this way they'll close tightly|
|add them at intervals that will make them even on your chain|
|the house charm is my favorite...I love it in miniature|
|E was so excited when I showed her the finished product|
|those of you who have been following me for a while know that I love multiple charms because of|
the jingle...and I was happy to hear that even though these are plastic, they jingle too!
