Club Scrap Cherry Blossom Blog Hop

Cherry Blossom Blog Hop!!

Today I am working with Club Scrap's Cherry Blossom Kit.This is such a pretty kit - this is a very pretty kit but since I have boys, I don't have a lot of girls or things in pink to digital scrapbook, I decided not to do digi layouts this month....I did think I could scrap my bunny but his disappeared a few weeks ago...  he has been gone for like 3 weeks now and I have been very sad.  I really looked forward to seeing, feeding and petting my little (not really my) pet bunny everyday.  Maybe his true family found him and caught him and took him back home. I was hoping he was just the Easter Bunny and just busy coloring Easter eggs, but a las he still isn't back...a girl can dream right??? on to other topics...

Today I am playing with Shrinky you remember shrinky dinks from your childhood???  I haven't played with them in a very long time.  I made a great little Cherry Blossom bracelet.  I told my son he could put this in an Easter egg and give this to his girl friend for Easter (I made this before Easter).


Shrink Plastic
Stazon Ink
Alcohol Ink
Jewelry findings (jump rings, head pins, etc)


Using Stazon Ink - Stamp images onto Shrink plastic, let dry.

Flip plastic over, and apply a very light coat of alcohol ink over image - when you shrink image it will concentrate the color, so it doesn't have to be dark to start with.

Cut the images out and punch a 1/8th hole - if you punch a too small of a hole - and it shrinks - you won't be able to put a jump ring or head pin through the hole.

Then you need to shrink them.  Follow the instructions from the package - generally done in the oven.  Here you can see the size difference of them shrunk compared to the size of the original rubber image:

Here you can see I added jewelry findings to the shrinky dinks:

I took a premade bracelet and colorized it with some alcohol ink and added the blossoms bits from above image to the bracelet with jump rings.  I think it turned out really cute:

(And as a follow up....My son's girlfriend really liked the bracelet too!!!)
