An accessory you can't live without
I made this necklace for a gamer friend's birthday.
It looks good to have the pixels with sharp corners but it does make the necklace a tad spiky, so you may want to round them off slightly with sandpaper.

Draw a grid for your hearts on some scrap paper. Use a shrunken ruler to figure out how big your grid should be.* Draw your hearts into the grid, making sure you add an extra pixel in the top corners of your outer hearts for the hole punch.
*If you don't have a shrunken ruler, all you need to do is draw a ruler on a piece of shrink plastic (you can include some colour swatches and hole punches of different sizes to see how they turn out as well) then cook them to the requirements on your packet of shrink plastic.
Cook your cut out hearts to the specifications on your shrink plastic packaging.
Be careful though, because I've found that the heat specified on my pack is incorrect and causes the plastic to curl but not to shrink. Your oven also effects what temperature/time you need to cook your plastic at. I had to re-trace, cut and cook the hearts at a different temperature as the first one I did shriveled up and never shrank because I used the settings that I would have in my old oven.
