Celebrate National Craft Month with Jellypark!

March is National Craft Month & this week's Jellypark Friends challenge is to use your favourite craft product or technique :D  There are 2 fabulous new releases today & I used "Teacup".  I wanted to do something a bit different so I made a shrink plastic charm (I printed the digital image onto printable shrink plastic, coloured it with pencils, cut it out, shrank it with my heat gun & added some Glossy Accents).  I made a bag charm with some beads & a teapot charm & added the teacup charm too.  I don't know about you but a nice strong cuppa (preferably with some chocolate or cake) is one of my favourite things :D  The design team have been working their socks off so there's lots of inspiration for you if you need any (& if you don't why not show them some love anyway, they sure would appreciate it).

The challenges:
Making it with Meslyn - Something New (digi & charm)
By The Cute & Girly - In the Kitchen
Incy Wincy - Something Old, Something New (new digi & charm, old seed beads) 
Papertake - Anything Goes with option of Shrink Plastic
PanPastel - Use a Stamped Image
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking :o)
I hope you've had a great week - the weekend can't come soon enough for me lol

Brilliant! Do you have to have special ink in your printer to use printable shrink plastic? My kids would love that...! x

This is fabulous, what a great idea!

Technically though it isn't "paper craft" so it is not really a valid entry in to the Make It Monday linky party.

Still love it though, lol.

Michelle :o)
