I decided to try my hand (hah...no pun intented) at making a bracelet using shrink plastic charms! Using my "You've Got Flair" stamp set from Close To My Heart, I stamped the images using Staz-On black ink onto shrink plastic (Hobby Lobby). Then I turned the sheet over, colored the images using colored permanent markers (Hobby Lobby), then cut them out. I used a mini hole punch to make a small hole in the top of each charm.
To shrink them, I used my heat gun (I protected my work surface by putting the pieces on a small cookie sheet with a pot holder underneath). I held each one down with my craft tweezers and heated until it shrunk and became hard. I let it cool, then lifted from the cookie sheet.
I bought a premade bracelet and little silver rings (Hobby Lobby) and attached the charms every four holes on the bracelet. And that's it! I love the personalized look it has and plan to make more. I think my next one will be with some jumbo letter stamps, for the Mess Maker's teachers at preschool... :)
I wonder if the Cricut markers would work on shrink plastic??? Off to the Cricut Message Board to find out...
