Stampin' Up! Medallion Necklace

Stampin' Up! Medallion Stamp SetI was asked to make a necklace for a Christmas gift to a sister-in-law.  What do you think?  These necklaces are so easy to make!  I cut a piece of Shrinky Dink with the Top Note die on the Big Shot.  After that I stamped the Medallion Stamp with black Stazon ink, punched the hole needed to attach it to the necklace and then heated it in the oven.  So very simple!

I hope you will visit again tomorrow.  I am planning to list the retired, used stamp sets I have with pictures for you to see.  There are a good number of them.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. FABULOUS! I’m gonna have to try this! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  2. Love it! 🙂

  3. Love the idea! Where do you find the shrinky dink? I would love to try this. Thanks for sharing.

    • You should be able to find the Shrinky Dink at your local craft store. Stampin’ Up! used to sell it but that was way back before I ever became a demonstrator. You can buy it in different colors. Have fun creating!

      Oh, one word of caution, make sure you punch any holes needed before heating it and remember that the holes will shrink too!

  4. This is great! I didn’t think that medallion stamp would shrink down so small. Thanks for sharing!! Now I know what I’d like to do next 😉

  5. love it! gr8 job!

  6. HOW did you get it to stay flat? Did you turn it halfway through the “bake” time? I have tried this for another project…with holes on the sides to try to tie it around a box or a candle…and it curls SO badly! My scallop circles work great, but these leave much to be desired. Do you sand your shrink paper or anything? Your input would really be appreciated! I love stopping by your blog from time to time 🙂

    • Hi Mandy,

      I think you probably want to leave your Shrinky Dink in the oven longer. When it’s shrinking it curls all up but then you want to just keep it in there it will slowly flatten itself back out. Once it has pretty well flattened itself back out, then I pull it out and right away, wearing an oven mitt, I press it down flat with a piece of cardboard or some brown paper and my mitted hand.

      I hope that helps!
