Steps to Make This:

  1. Trace two sets of a four-petal flower and holly leaf outline on to the rough side of Grafix Sanded Shrink Film with a pencil.
  2. Then cut out the shapes and erase the pencil lines if needed.
  3. Add the pastels with a sponge to the sanded side of Shrink Film.
  4. Punch a hole into the center of the flower and the stem of the leaf of the Shrink Film before heating.
  5. Shrink the leaf with a heat tool and set aside.
  6. Shrink the flower and mold the die-cut film into a berry shape by curving the petals upwards to form a ball-like shape. (Use heatproof gloves if needed).
  7. Add an eye pin to the hole in the berry shape, shorten the wire, and form a loop.
  8. Add glitter nail polish (or clear nail polish or sealing spray) to seal the pastel on all of the film embellishments.
  9. Once dry, add an outline around edges of all the shapes with a metallic marker.
  10. Add nail polish to the tip of holly leaves and tip into glitter while still wet.
  11. Seal the glitter with an additional layer of nail polish.
  12. Add a jump ring to the leaves. Hook all the embellishments onto the hoop earrings.
