Simply Charming


Easter is fast approaching and I wanted to make a fun little piece of jewelry using some darling vintage egg-shaped images from Heather Hudson's wonderful Etsy shop at My Artistic Adventures.  The Victorian Vintage Easter Eggs lent themselves perfectly to this technique!

These little cuties are printed out on shrink plastic paper (one brand is "Shrinky Dinks") at 50% transparency, punched with a hole at the top and then shrunk.  There are so many images on these eggs from which to choose that it's hard to choose just seven!

Isn't this little bunny adorable?  I added little handmade charms between each egg for a bit of sparkle and glam.

This little chick, proclaiming "He is Risen!" to the world, is my favorite.

The eggs have a bit of a frosted look in the photos, but they don't really in real life.  No matter how I turned the lights, they still came out as slightly frosted, but that's just the texture of the shrunk shrink plastic.  Say THAT three times fast.

Thanks for joining me and here's wishing you a lovely day in which YOU proclaim good news to the world, whatever news that may be.

Happy crafting!
