Shrinky Dink Charm Bracelet

So I had a bunch of shrinky dink charms....what do I do with them?  Make a charm bracelet of course.  I just happened to have a jewelry making kit that I picked up at Walmart on clearance for $1 that included pieces for a charm bracelet, a necklace and a set of earrings.  The charm bracelet had a bunch of similar round charms, so I thought I'd cannibalize the parts and make my own personalized charm bracelet.  But you could easily make it yourself with a 7 or 8 inch chunk of cable chain from the craft store, a lobster clasp, and some jump rings.

The best part of this bracelet is that the charms are practically free to make (aside from the cookies I have to buy), so when I come up with a new idea or get sick of a charm, I can swap it out very easily.

If you missed the posts where I explained how these were made, check them out: Homemade Shrinky Dinks and this week's Shrinky Dink Tardis Necklace.
