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 gone...so 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.|
