First thing to do is to get the actual design of the font. You can open any word processing programs that you can select the font for your necklace later on. In order to get the right size of the font be sure to get the size of the font in four times larger than the actual size that you want to be in the nameplate. Next step to make your own personalized nameplate necklace is to get a piece of Shrinky Dink plastic then place the font that you have printed out as the stencil on the flat section of the plastic. Trace out the edge using permanent marker with fine tip.
Sand the front section of the plastic to get the rough surface in order to hold the pigment of the nameplate necklace that you are making. Color the inside part of the name itself using colored pencil accordingly. Next thing is to cut just outside the edge of the name for the nameplate necklace using scissors. Once you have done in cutting out the edges, make a hole on both sides of the name using a stand hole punch. Make sure the distance is three millimeters from the edge. Preheat an oven in 250 degrees Fahrenheit then place the nameplate on a piece of parchment paper above a cookie sheet. Let it shrink inside then take it out as the size is the one that you want. Remove the cookie sheet and wait it till completely cool before finishing your nameplate necklace by placing it on a chain.
