Shrinkydinks necklace!!!

Last year we did a lot of projects with ShrinkaDinks. For those of you who haven’t heard about ShrinkaDinks, they are sheets of special paper that you decorate and then bake. Once baked they shrink and become hard and you can use them as charms for necklaces, bracelets, you can even do bookmarks , signs etc.
Since last year we kind of forgot about them and haven’t done a project since. But it wasn’t until I saw one of my friends wearing a necklace, made from ShrinkaDinks, by her kids that I remembered how fun it was plus I loved the idea of wearing a charm on my necklace made by my kids. So I bought the ShrinkaDinks ( from amazon, but could be found at target or michaels) and got the kids engaged in them again and loved the outcome:) got my small personalized necklace charm out of it;). My kids’ friends were here too and they all just loved it and specially that they were doing personalized charms for their mom and friends.
We printed out templates too, the girls wanted to create their own designs but the boys just wanted their designs from the templates. And the best part was watching the charms shrink in the oven which only takes about 2 minutes.
Hope you get to try them they are a fun project to do! Hope you create this memory;) Josiane
