Bracelet with Shrinkable Plastic, Swarovski® Crystals and Seed Beads

STEP 1
Using the marker, trace or draw cupcake images on frosted shrinkable plastic page, keeping in mind how much shrinkage there will be after heating.

Note: You can find great copyright free cupcake clipart on the Internet.
STEP 2
Using colored pencils, color cupcakes in.
STEP 3
There are two ways to add a hole to your cupcake so it can be used as a dangle: punch a hole right in the cupcake or leave a border to accommodate a hole outside of the cupcake.
STEP 4
Cut out the cupcakes leaving a small border around the black line. Place the cupcakes onto a piece of Teflon® then bake according to manufacturer's instructions.

Note: To prevent curling when you remove cupcakes from the oven, press something heavy, metal and flat on top of cupcakes when still hot or warm (I use an Altoid® tin).
STEP 5
Glue flat backs onto shiny side of cupcake and let dry.
STEP 6
Attach small jumprings to each cupcake.
STEP 7
Onto a headpin, string a seed bead, crystal and a seed bead then make a wrapped loop to create a beaded dangle. Repeat to create a total of 14 crystal dangles.
STEP 8
Add large jumprings to all cupcakes and crystal dangles.
STEP 9
Unscrew the end of Dione® Easy-On chain then load it up with alternating crystals and cupcakes.
