Hello there, Hollowers! I hope you are all having a fantastic Tuesday. I told you I’d be back with another fun project using the December 2020 Box and here I am, with a DIY necklace, keychain, and gift packaging! If you didn’t see my blog post from last week, you can find it here. I made a cute card using all the Forest Friends! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see my other posts as well.

This week, I am sharing a video tutorial! I made a Shrinky Dink necklace and keychain. Plus, I made the gift packaging to put it in! This month’s subscription box is most definitely my fav so far! Did you get yours yet?!

The Projects

To create the gift packaging, I used the Heffy Doodle Gift Card Pocket Die. I created my own dot borders with a Sharpie pen.

For the bears and sentiment, I used the Forest Friends and Animal Greetings Stamp Sets that were included in the December Subscription Box. I colored the images with Copic markers.

To create my necklace and keychain, I used Dress My Craft’s Shrink Prink. I stamped the bear from the Forest Friends Stamp Set on the glossy side of the Shrink Prink with Staz-On ink. Then, I colored him on the frosted side of the Shrink Prink using colored pencils. I used a hole punch to create a hole BEFORE shrinking him down with my heat tool.

I just love the sentiment “Thank you beary much” with these sweet Forest Friends bears! My daughter has already stolen the keychain and hung it in her room!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and video! Looking forward to my post for next week! What could it be… what could it be… ?

Don’t forget, you only have until December 14th to order this box! What are you waiting for!?

Xoxo, Amanda 🙂
