I love shrink plastic. I made these "my name" necklaces for my daughters a while back with shrink plastic. All you have to do is cut out the name using shrink plastic, paint them and bake them. Mine was kinda big (I think I may use it for a key chain instead). The original size of the name as 8 inches and it shrunk down to 4 inches. You could experiment with the size and color. I used gold paint to embellish it a little. It's not something I would wear to work, but a fun day to day necklace. It also helped Avery practice the letters in her name. Avery loved her necklace and its great because shrink plastic is cheap so I don't have to worry about her losing it.
|Use Cricut or die cut machine to cut shrink plastic.|
|Try to fit as many names on one sheet. If your mat isn't that sticky recutting shrink plastic on small pieces can be disastrous.|
|Remember to punch holes before you bake!|
|After you bake you can paint with gold paint.|
|I applied a thin coat of polyurethane onto seal the paint.|
