ShrinkFilm “Love” Bracelet

Valentine’s Day is the Day of Love!   This ShrinkFilm “Love” Bracelet is perfect to wear for the day or to even give to a friend or Love as a gift!   bracelet final
Like with my ShrinkFilm “Love” Earrings, I used my Sizzix Eclips2 and ShrinkFilm that I purchased from A.C.Moore to cut my hearts out.  It was easy, quick and all of my hearts were the same size!

Using a hole punch, I cut two holes from my hearts, one on each side.  Then with a Sharpie permanent marker, I drew and outline and wrote the word Love.  Once they were all colored, I placed them in the toaster oven for 2-3 minutes and then they were ready to be put together as a bracelet.

Using larger jump rings and my round nose pliers, I attached each heart to together forming a bracelet.  On each end, I added a toggle piece.  For it to fit my wrist correctly, I added and then removed a heart just to make sure it wasn’t too big or too small.

ShrinkFilm “Love” Earrings

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!   These ShrinkFilm “Love” Earrings are perfect for the day of LOVE!   They were super easy and turned out super cute! earrings final
Using my Sizzix Eclips2 and ShrinkFilm that I purchased from A.C.Moore, I cut out a bunch of hearts.   The Eclips2 was so quick at cutting all of the hearts and they were all the same size!

Using just a regular hole punch, I went ahead and punched my holes, only one per heart.   Then I used a Sharpie permanent marker to draw an outline and the word Love.   Next it was time to put my hearts into the toaster oven and watch them shrink.  It amazes me every time that it only takes 2-3 minutes for it to shrink!
I keep a stash of earrings and jump rings in my supplies.   Using my round nose pliers, I added my jump rings (two to each heart) and placed them on my earrings.
