Too Much Time on My Hands

My husband has decided that I have too much time on my hands.  Oh, if only.....!  I have purchased some of the Mini Magnolias and really LOVE them!  They are just too cute. 
If you remember, in the Fun in the Summer Sun Magnolia Ink magazine there was a tutorial on making charms using Shrinky Dink plastic and Magnolia images. Hhhhmmmm - Mini Maggies - shrink plastic Maggies !?!     WELL ----  here are mine!!

I don't wear much jewelry and especially not bracelets, so I turned mine into keychains!!

When I showed my hubby, he remarked that I really did have too much time on my hands if I could make these.

The charms have Glossy Accents on them so they were difficult to photograph.  This is the third pic I took and the least glaring of the three. 
These were quite fun to make, really easy and fairly quick.  I made matching bookmarks and attached the keychains to them.  I have already given several away with Christmas cards.

So what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
