Charms Charms Charms ...... 1st time

I am part of a great group of women who found each other via facebook.  We deided to do a Charm swap last month and I decided to branch out and learn something new. 


As you all know I love Unity Stamp Company so I found the perfect Stamp from a Kit of the Month ( great way to get to know unity) and decided to make a charm for it out of shirnky dink. 

Things I learned about shrinky dinks....
1.  you must rough up the material before stamping a high grit number paper works best 300 or higher
2.  you must use darker ink then you think when you stamp
3.  the stuff stinks when you "bake"it so use ventalations and don't cook pizza right afterwards allow your oven to cool down.  

Here is the stamp and image shrunk

Next I found cute beads and such and then strung them together to make a charm


Supplies.. included invisible wire as well
The finished charms

Thanks so much for taking a peek at the project and I can't wait to share the next one with you.
