I made this from Shrinky Dinks for one of my swap partners.  I can't wait to see her modeling it.  I'm so in love with this that I'm working on a whole gang of creatures.  Comments are appreciated!!  Thanks for looking!!

Such in credible detail!  I love it.  Did you use a craft knife to cut it?
Amazing!

Pick-N-Mix:  Thanks!!  The bones were the hardest to cut, but I think it was worth the pain.  Hehehe!

chica grande mas bonita:  Muchos gracias!!  Love your pic BTW!

Tarewyn:  Thanks!!  No, I was afraid that I'd mess up with the knife, so I used tiny embroidery scissors that I got especially to cut this.

Thanks guys!!  It was fun to see it baking in the oven too. 
Have a great one!

I love it!! Afterall the girl scout crafts with shrinky dinks, you never knew how to use the material usefully! But you have inspired me. Your dino looks gold? Did you color him with gold sharpie? How did you attach him? Did you make the holes before or after you shrunk him? What's the trick to making your shrinky dink not curl in the oven?

akehurstm: Thanks!!  Nope, he's white.  I didn't color him...just bad lighting.  It looks much more detailed in person.  Yes, make the holes before baking.  I let it curl, then squashed it with paper when it came out to make it flat.  Good luck!!  I'd love to see your creations!

Wow.amazing! I saw a pic of a necklace like this, only the bones were separate little metal things, and it was REDICULOUSLY expensive! How did i never think of a version like this? It's brilliant!

All it takes is a new bag to make a girl smile, and one smile can change the world.
