My little girl wanted to do an activity, so I drew some animals...at her request on a sheet of frosted rough & ready shrink plastic.
The finished piece...I just punched holes in the plastic before shrinking it & then we added jumprings & strung & knotted them onto a satin rainbow cord.



Coloring work in progress...



She was so tickled to wear it to school today & wants to make one for her friends.
 Cheesy

Thank you! She's probably going to want to wear it to bed & not let me take it off her. I think the next one we make will have smaller charms than this one. We kind of just winged it.

That looks like such fun!  Something my mom would have done with me when I was a kiddo!  Cheesy 

I love the little rabbit charm too.

That makes it even more awesome!!!!  Cheesy  Your own bun on the necklace!  I love personalized pieces like that. 

My little Holland lop, Thor, never ceases to make me smile.  You just must love house-bunnies!

Thank you guys!

She's home from school with a fever today, but that didn't stop her from getting her craft on. She claimed my roll of aluminum foil & paper towels & began crafting up some crowns... embellished with gems. I think she needs to do her first craftster tutorial!  Cheesy
