Shrinky Dink Earrings with the Stocking Accessories Die

Shrinky Dink Earrings made with the Stampin'UP! Stocking Accessories Die
Here is a quick Jewelry project made with Shrinky Dinks and the Stocking Accessories Die. Start with the colorless Shrinky Dink sheets and cut the shape with the Stocking Accessories Die and your Big Shot. Then sponge green color on one side and punch a hole with a 1/8" hole punch.  Then bake as directed.

Its important to punch the hole before baking because as the plastic shrinks it also gets thicker and would be impossible to punch after baking. I got the earring hardware at Ben Franklin.

Do you work with a Girl Scout Troop or other group of kids? This would be a fun project for them to make Holiday gifts for family and friends. 

The kids would have just as much fun making the packaging as they would making the jewelry. The Bag is Stampin'UP!'s small Cellophane bag. I used a piece of cardstock with 2 holes to support the earrings. The bag top is the Top Note Die folded in half and decorated with the Snowflake Punch, a folded strip of polystitched ribbon and a self-stick Rhinestone. Time-wise this project would fit easily into a scout meeting.
