Doctor Who Stackable Ring Tutorial and Template | by Elise Jimenez
I was browsing Etsy and came across these adorable rings by LicketyCut and I was inspired. 
I don’t have acrylic or a laser cutter, but I do have a bunch of colored shrink plastic and an exacto knife. So, I decided to make some templates and give it a shot and naturally my first design choice was Doctor Who.

Here are the steps:
1. Print the free printable templates. In the zip file there is a .png file and a .psd file. Use the .psd file in Photoshop to resize the ring template if you need a different sized ring. (Tip: The plastic usually shrinks 40-45% so keep that in mind when you resize.)
2. Cut out each template and trace onto the desired color. (Another tip: I use dry or wet erase markers to do this because they can be wiped off.)
3. Use scissors to cut around the large details on the shrink plastic and use an exacto knife for the small.  (For the 10th Doctor’s 3D glasses DO NOT CUT OUT THE LENSES, just color them in with colored sharpies or colored pencils.)

4. Bake the shapes according to the instructions on the package in the oven on parchment paper or vellum with an extra sheet on top to make sure that the rings do not curl in on themselves.
5. Place a hardcover book on top of the designs immediately after pulling them out of the oven to make sure they cool and harden flat.
