Glue, Scissors, Paper Challenge

The design team at Glue, Scissors, Paper had a charm challenge this week.  The challenge was to make a charm with bling.  My son's wedding is 3 weeks from today, so everything is wedding around here! I thought I would go with that and created a wedding ring charm. I cut clear shrink plastic with my cricut, and colored the bands with a silver sharpie. Then I baked them. After they cooled I covered the diamond with glitter glue, let that dry, then covered the whole thing with crystal effects. I think I will add another coat of crystal effects to smooth them out, but I am happy with how they turned out. I think they would look great on an engagement or wedding card, or tied on a gift.

Those are so cute. I was wondering if you could let me know what settings you used to cut the shrink plastic. I never thought of using that in the cricut but Id love to try it out. I want to make myself a disney charm bracelet

really a cute idea! TFS!

I did use the deep cut blade, but I had issues, which I always do! Next time I will try my regular blade with multi-cut. I used the deep blade, max pressure and blade depth, and did multicut 3. Multicut always gives me problems, and I don't know why. Make sure you tape the shrink film securely to the mat!!!!!
