Shrink paper

Scissors

Hole punch

Clear nail polish

How To Make It

1 Print out the charms on shrink paper and cut out each charm.
2 To use your charm as a bracelet or necklace pendant, you need to punch the hole where indicated before you bake it. If you want to attach the charm to a barrette or pin, simply cut under the hole to remove it.
3 Follow the baking instructions on the shrink paper package to bake the charms in a toaster oven or conventional oven. Watch the shrink plastic dance and curl! Do not allow children to use the oven.
4 If the charm is still slightly curled when it is finished baking, use a piece of cardboard or a spatula to flatten it completely.
5 Apply a couple coats of clear nail polish to seal the ink on the charm and make it water-resistant. Let it dry.
6 Add the charm to whatever you’d like! You can use jump rings and jewelry chain to create a charm bracelet or necklace, or attach it to a cell phone strap to decorate your phone or zipper pulls.
