I made my charm from shrink film. After cutting the shrink film to size, I hole-punched each end and sanded both sides. Then I lightly sponged brick, olive, and brown Distress inks on both sides. Afterwards I stamped both sides of the film with a weathered wood stamp and the flower/leaf stamps using StazOn ink. Next took a heat gun and shrunk the film. I colored the sides of the charm using the StazOn ink pad. Lastly I attached the jump ring, spiral wire, and bead to the charm and super-glued the copper dragonfly to the front.
