This necklace was so fun and easy to make with my new “best friend” Inkjet Shrink Film. When I got my first package of the film I was very curious if this napkin would be a choice for a print. I love how it turned out.
Step 1: I put this napkin on the platen of my inkjet printer and printed out a color copy on the shrink film. (HINT: Don’t worry which side to print on because EITHER side works…YAY)
Step 2: Let the ink dry and cut out all the elements. I punched holes in the tops and bottoms of most of the pieces so I could add seed beads and other small beads to the bottoms. (Hint: Use a regular size punch because the hole shrinks 50%.
The pieces shrink 50% so they are perfect to make a cute little necklace.
Step 3: Use jump rings to attach the pieces to the chain and add little beads to decorate the bottoms.
I wouldn’t have ever thought of adding in the abstract print element of the red pieces and I think those pieces really add some punch to the over all effect.
I love it when experiments work out! I have already used all my Inkjet Shrink Film but I placed an order to Dick Blick and two new packages are on their way. YAY!
I can hardly wait for you to see my inkjet shrink film ballerinas!
