Friendly Plastic...

Spiral Rings

1

Cut desired colors Friendly Plastic into 1/4” x 3” strips. Cut a silicone baking sheet liner into 3/4” x 4 1/2” strips. Find a cylinder that is the approx. circumference of your finger.

2

Place the silicone strips onto the per-heated griddle. Center and position the plastic strips along one edge of the silicone strips. Allow the plastic to soften.
Tip: If the ends of the plastic start to curl... lightly press them down onto the silicone strip.

3

One at a time... remove the silicone strip from the griddle. Holding on to one end, position the silicone strip at a slight angle on the cylinder.

4

Slowly wrap the silicone strip around the cylinder, closely overlapping the edges as you create the spiral.

5

Securely hold on to the end of the silicone strip as you dip the cylinder into a bowl of ice cold water. Hold under the water for a minute or two, while the plastic hardens.

6

Remove from the water and slide the cylinder out.

7

Next remove the silicone strip.

8

Dry the ring off using a paper towel.

9

Repeat the process for each ring.

10

For a bit of added charm... attach a dangle. Using a 1/16” hole punch... punch a hole through the ring.

11

Create a loop using a head pin.

12

Choose your desired dangles. A mix of beads and tiny charms, are perfect for this.

13

Attach the dangles using a jump ring.

14

Plain or fancied up, these are as much fun to wear as they are to make.
