Ephemera Charm Necklace

Made using Cathe Holden's free ephemera downloads from and printed on Shrinky Dink sheets for inkjet printers following the manufacturers direction. Cut out the charms. Just punch an 1/8" hole in the top of the charm, bake them in an oven at 300-325 degrees for about 5 minutes on a piece of brown paper bag. They contort while backing and then settle back down as they shrink. When they lay flat again you know they're done. They shrink to 1/3 of their original side. Place a book or other weight on them for about 30 seconds while they're cooling to help them stay flat. Add the O rings and they're ready for your use on necklaces, keychains, or scrapbook project. Fun, fun, fun!!
