A Vintage Inspired Charm Bracelet How-To And A Giveaway!!


"What sorcery is this?"


At long last the winter months are leaving us. And with the spring, comes a newfound appreciation for all things crafty. If you recall my post on how thrifting can inspire creativity, you may remember a little teaser about an upcoming craft project and giveaway. 

Well it is time for that giveaway! But first things first, my lovely little charm bracelet. I was wearing this vintage inspired charm bracelet, showing it off to coworkers, and a young woman passing by was in literal awe. She grabbed my arm, and actually screeched in excitement, "What sorcery is this?" Well, for the first time I am revealing the magic behind the making of my charm bracelet. And the magic is Grafix Shrink Film.

With just a few simple tools and a sheet of the Grafix Inkjet White Shrink Film, I've turned a few of my treasured photos and ephemera into wearable art. And with this simple step-by-step guide, you can create one of your own.





Watching those little plastic films shrink and harden is a thing of wonder, I tell ya.  Prepare yourself for compliments galore. And while you're at it, be sure to check out some of the other neat little DIY projects that are possible with the magic of shrink film and other fun products over at the Grafix Project Gallery.

I am truly excited to say that this charm bracelet will soon be featured on the Grafix website and blog, as well. And thanks to Hayley Prendergast, President of Grafix, you should be excited as well. Because in this corporate sponsored promotion, Let's Go Thrifting is supplying one lucky reader with a 6-sheet pack of Grafix Inkjet White Shrink Film for your next craft project!







So without further delay, here's how you can score yourself a 6-sheet pack of shrinkable sorcery, courtesy of the Grafix company. 


Many thanks to the Grafix company for taking part in this project and sponsored giveaway. 
This giveaway is open to US residents only.  The winner will be announced on 4/21/15.
Good luck, everyone!
