A Little Bird Told Me...

It's Friday so that means new releases & a new challenge at Jellypark Friends :D  This week there are 2 new releases: Squirrel I'm Nuts About You & Little Bird.  I wanted to make something different (& indulge my other passion: jewellery making), so I used (printable) shrink plastic & made some earrings & a bag charm using the Little Bird image.  I printed the image twice (flipping one to get a mirror image), coloured with pencils, cut around them both leaving a couple of mm border & then punched a hole in the top.  Once shrunk (using my heat gun) I attached each one to a jump ring, added some beads to an eye pin & joined together & attached all to an earring wire.  Then I made a bag charm too attaching beads & charms to a blank key chain.  The challenge is World Gratitude Day/Thanks if you would like to join us :D

The challenges:
Lexi's Creations - Make a Gift - Anything But a Card
Creative Craft - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky - Things With Wings
Allsorts - Purple Passion
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Crafting for all Seasons - Things With Wings

Roll on 5 o'clock when the weekend can begin :)

LOVE it! I've been checking out your jewelry blog when I stop of my passions too. That's what's so great about the shrink stuff - putting both passions into one.
