I was inspired by Karen Day's shrink plastic earrings and used the
 Witch Spinner Dies to cut out the shape from black shrink plastic. 


Supplies:
Die cutting machine
Black shrink plastic
Beads
1 1/4" eye pins
Ear wires
Emory board
Toaster oven
Cardboard
1/8" Hole punch


Tools as shown in photo below




Place dies on shiny side of black shrink plastic and run through die cutting machine.  Punch holes in top.  Sand edges with emory board.  Preheat toaster oven to 275 (Or whatever temperature your brand of shrink plastic lists on the instructions)  Place die cuts shiny side up on cardboard and place in toaster oven.  Bake for 5 or 6 minutes until curling stops and pieces are flat.  Take out of toaster oven and let them cool.  Attach beads on eye pins.  Attach eye pin to ear wires or clip ons.  Attach bottom piece to shrink plastic piece and bend wire to form a loop and press to close.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
