i made these charms out of shrink plastic (it trades as shrinkle in the UK and shrink-dink in the US, try your local craft store!), i think they're pretty effective, especially the silver ones which i sprayed with enamel paint.



hope you like  Grin

Oh, dear mother of pearl!

As an avid shrink-plastic charm maker and lover I do know my way around shrinky dink stuff *honk-honk my own horn* and I must say that your charms are stunning! So well made and perfect in all ways, one can really tell you've put a lot of work into these (and as Lava means love already said: your cutting skills are awesome). I'm totally impressed and very much in love with your style (maybe because I myself have impeccable taste *honk-honk*). Cheesy Love kitschy plastic stuff...

One question though - did you print out the designs or draw them? (with say, Sharpies. I so am getting myself some Sharpies - thank lord for the internet!)

Your charms are SO AWESOMELY COOL!
Kiss

ETA: Just had to add: I love the deer horns!

Nifty!

Shrinky plastic is light enough that it'd probably be a good medium for earrings. Have you tried those too?

thanks all!

i use pencil to trace the designs then rub out the marks after i've cut. and yea, the cutting takes a LOT of time and effort!

the most common problem of curled edges seems to happen when people panic and take them out of the oven too soon.. or try a higher temperature?
