Happy Mother's Day moms, and to all the other women in our lives who care for us in ways big and small.
To celebrate our moms this year, I wanted a new project, something that our mommies would use, something more than a paper project or card to put away in a special box. Those are treasured, of course, but I wanted... more.
I settled on shrinky dink necklaces - a piece of your child's art to wear. I cut and hole punched the plastic, bought jump rings and ribbon, and came up with a card to hold the finished necklaces. In case anyone would like to copy the project, I took pictures of the blank cards and templates I used to create them. It's hard to tell from this picture, but I cut the card stock along the shoulder lines, so the necklaces could be strung around the card like a real necklace.
