                                            How to make charms!!

  Today I decided that I should blog about charms. I found this really cool video on how to make plastic shrink charms. This video explains on how to make these cute charms.  I hope you guys love this post! Plastic shrink charms are really easy to make because you get to draw your shape and then you bake! It sounds really simple because it is.
  If you don't want to watch the video then this explains on how to make the charms:

  First you need #6 recycled plastic,sharpie markers,wax paper,baking pan,oven,scissors,spoon or spatula, and a hole punch. Second cut the plastic from your container. Then, you can draw your shape on the plastic. Next, draw about 3 times bigger. Cut out each of your designs. Punch holes on where you want them. Place on baking sheet and pan with the side you colored on face up. Space out your charms. Preheat your oven around 250 degrees F then you can put your design in. Watch your charms curl up and shrink. Once they are small and flat again take the pan out of the oven. If some pieces are not flat then flat them out with your spoon or spatula while it is still hot. That is how to make a charm!
