SUPPLIES:

Matte Shrink Film

Heart Paper punch, template or die (I used Spellbinders Media Mixage Hearts One – the middle size die)

Ear Wires

Jewelry Pliers

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

Alcohol inks and applicator

Distress Paints or other acrylics of your choice

TUTORIAL:

Ink your felt applicator and pull stripes (left) or dab color splotches (right) onto rough side of shrink film.  Cover entire sheet or just what you will use.  I made a bunch of shapes, so I covered the entire sheet.

Die cut, paper punch or hand cut out your shapes.  You can see the inks I used and how the pieces look before baking.

I wasn’t quite thrilled with the coloring after the alcohol inks, so I added Distress paint (barn door).  Punch a hole in your pieces where you want the jump ring to be and bake per shrink film instructions.

Let cool, apply a coat of Dimensional magic for a gloss look.  When that dries, you may have to reopen your hole with a needle tool or awl.  Insert your jump ring and ear wire.

Most people would never guess these were made from shrink film.  I get tons of compliments every time I wear them!

I have a charm bracelet on the work table using the rest of the pieces from this shrink film afternoon.
