Introduction: Cheap Way to Make a 3D Ring: Use Shrink Plastic!
Also want to create those fun 3d rings, but don't have the funds or materials? Just use shrink plastic and use your own design.
1. Print the free printable stencil. And cut out the ring out of cardboard like in image 1.
2. Design a shape that you want on top of your ring and cut that out of cardboard.
3. Trace the shapes onto the shrinky dink plastic.
4. Cut the shapes out of the shrinky dink plastic. Place the shrinky dink in the oven and follow the instructions on the shrinky dink package.
** Extra tip: My rings sometimes rolled op to much in the oven and would stick together. To prevent this, I wrapped baking paper around the ring before I placed it in the oven, this will put a little weight on the ring and makes it curl less.

I know it's a few years later BUT I still don't see anybody letting me know how to size the rings to fit. Or is it cut on the band to make it a "one size fits most" idea? I'm confused. I'm not a jewelry artist. I just thought these were fun and I'd kind of like to give it a go.
