A big thank you to Kim Cook for sharing this wonderful idea! I added a little twist with shrink plastic charms created with QuicKutz.
Along with your cards, photo postcards and letters, you will need a metal ring, ribbons or fibers to match your paper, 6x8 sheet acetate, two sheets of patterned paper cut into four 6x8 pieces, two pieces of 6x8 thin chipboard (you may substitute with two 6x8 pieces double-sided heavyweight patterned cardstock instead of paper and chipboard), a sheet of shrink plastic, markers or ink to color shrink plastic, and a hole punch.
Dies I selected for creating shrink plastic charms were parchment scroll REV-0080, Ornaments Rev-0068, Tree Rev-0067. Using your Epic or Revolution, cut your dies just like you would paper. Lightly sand them so ink will adhere better. Punch a hole in shape to thread fiber through. Color shapes with ink, markers or chalk. I wrote on the scroll using a black pigment marker. The color will intensify when shrunk.
Assemble your project, tie charms to ring, add additional fibers or ribbons.
My goal this year is to further incorporate special keepsakes into our décor for everyday pleasure and enjoyment.
I have received great pleasure participating in QuicKutz’s Ambassador program and making new friends on the forum and gallery.
