Happy Flowers Necklace



Here's a necklace I designed to wear with one of my favorite summer tops.   It's made by stamping on shrink plastic, shrinking with a heat gun or oven.  Then adding gems and beads.

Instructions
Sand shrink plastic then wipe off dust with a paper towel.
Punch a 1 3/4" circle in shrink plastic. 
Punch 1/8" hole in top of 1 3/4" circle.
Stamp Flowers on circle.  Let ink dry for approx. 10 to 15 minutes.
Place circle on a box or phone book.  Use heat gun to shrink.
After it shrinks and while it's still hot, use a wood block to flatten it.
Attach jewelry findings, beads and necklace.
Glue gems to flower centers.
