Teeny Tiny Charms using Shrink Film

Hello, everyone! Have you ever used Shrink Film before? It's lots of fun! I made these teeny tiny charms using the new Brutus Monroe Premium Shrink Film and Brutus Monroe Tina's Classroom Stamp Set. This would be a great gift for a teacher but my daughter wants to keep it for herself.




To make the charms, I first stamped some of the images from Tina's Classroom Stamp Set using Brutus Monroe Detail Ink in Raven onto a sheet of the Premium Shrink Film. Then colored in each image with Stylefile Markers. Once they were all colored, I then cut each one out leaving a little extra outside of the stamp line. After cutting them out, I punched a 1/8" hole in the top corner of each one with my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite.


Then using something pointy like tweezers or a toothpick in the hole to hold the charm while using the Embossing Heat Tool to shrink the charms. When they first start shrinking they will shrivel all up but keep the heat tool on them and they will flatten back out again. You can also use something flat like a stamp block on them while they are still hot to flatten them out even more.
All you have to do now is add a small jump ring to them and attach them to a bracelet. I attached mine to a Rainbow Loom bracelet my daughter made.
