Here goes my first attempt to post pictures...

First, a fun shrinky dink with a couple of beads.. I haven't really mastered how to make a true circle on the other end of the eyepin yet. But I like it anyway!


Another fun shrinky dink necklace:


And last, a pair of wire and bead wrapped hoop earrings:

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Guys!

AWESOME. Where did you get the image tiles?
I just did a Google Image search for vintage advertisements, and then edited the pictures to get rid of the words/brand names/etc., and printed them out on shrinky dink paper! The best old ads I found were for Jantzen bathing suits.

I just checked out your bracelets, they're great! Who'da thunk you could make such great stuff with shrinky dinks!
