Making a Gift

It is no secret I love Maigan's mermaids. Ever since I first started purchasing the stamps I have had one project in mind that needed to be done. It is now in process and I simply MUST share it with you. I am making a charm bracelet using the stamps and shrinky dink material!!

Here are some stamped on 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch pieces. Don't forget to punch the hole NOW! I then colored them with BIC markers on the opposite side from which I stamped to be certain I would not smear the image.

Here they are ready to go in the oven

And now coming out!

This picture shows the finished ones with another batch stamped and ready to color for size comparison

My current finished girls all lined up and looking pretty!!

This is the gift I am making and it is a gift to me!!! I hope you are inspired to create something for yourself as well!
