Personalizing Your Gypsy!

Personalizing Your Gypsy!

I have personalized my cricut and cuttlebug with vinyl...

For the longest time I have been thinking of ways to personalize my gypsy.

Then today, this fun idea popped into my head:)

What you will need:

Shrinky Dink Plastic





Hole Punch

Embossing Gun

1. I cut out the scallop circle using my cricut. Make sure you adjust the settings and use your multi cut button.

2. I used my personalized stamp by PSA Essentials to stamp in the circle. Wait for the ink to dry for about 10-15 minutes.

3. Use a hole punch, I used my cropadile and the biggest punch setting. Try to use the biggest hole punch you can because your charm will shrink a ton.

4. Using my tweezers and embossing gun, I shrunk down the plastic. Make sure you use a cricut spatula to smooth out the plastic as soon as you stop the heat. It hardens pretty fast. If it still has parts not smoothed out, heat it again and it works like a charm;) *This is how much it shrunk 5. Add to your gypsy stylus and enjoy:)

Be sure to pick up a personalized stamp from PSA Essentials!
