Love my STATE or USA DIY Jewelry!

 Love my STATE or USA DIY Jewelry!
I love my state pieces are totally trendy right now.
 These are a breeze to make!
I just printed off an outline of the USA or individual states...
they are super easy to find online.
 Trace them with a sharpie onto Shrinky Dink plastic!



Cut them out and add an enlarged hole.
Add a heart at your desired location and use a hobby knife to
 carefully cut the center of the heart out.
 Melt the plastic in the oven.
350* on a baking sheet for about 5 minutes...they will curl up and then flatten out.
Look how much they shrunk!
Watch them the entire time.  It's not only super fun to watch,
but important that you get them out right when they are done.
 Add a chain and show your pride!
 Either as a choker or a long necklace!
 Get crazy with states too!
Here's Utah...
(love Utah...born and raised...lived for 30+ years!)
 Texas...
(went to San Antonio once and loved it!)
 Alabama...
(Sweet Home Alabama!)
and
 California...
(Senior Trip to San Diego!)
 Super cute and fun project for older kids...tweens and teens!
Make a charm of all the places you've been!
Could be a really fabulous charm necklace!
 What state would YOU make?
I've been to 33 states.
This was a fun interactive game to calculate!
 How many STATES have you been to?
