"Who" Has Time for Crafts?

Evidently I do.

I needed to figure out a way to make charms for a bracelet that we gave to our former YW secretary.  She left to go on a mission this week, and before she left we presented her with a nearly empty charm bracelet.  It had one lone charm on it.  We plan to send her a charm every month that she's they needed to be cheap and flat-ish.  Thank you Pinterest for solving my dilemma. Quite a while ago I had pinned a charm bracelet with Shrinky Dink charms.

I don't think I've ever actually bought Shrinky Dinks before.  My poor children led a deprived childhood.  I found these at Michael's and used some coupons...before coupon a 6 pack of white ink-jet compatible sheets was about $14.  Lucky me, I had a 50% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket.
I screen captured a bunch of quotes, then lightened the pictures.

Most of them turned out fine - there are a couple that are hard to read - but considering this was my first attempt, I feel pretty good about it.

My second set...time for a little Doctor Who.

This time I added a design on the back.  I typed out the name of the recipient in Simple Gallifreyan.
