Can you decoupage shrinky dinks? See below for the fabulous results!

My main inspiration was scrabble tile pendants. I started making a ton when I got a hold of some beautiful Washi paper from Japan. But I started to get frustrated. The small size of the scrabble tile pendant really restricts the paper and patterns I could use. Then the idea hit me. Maybe I could make shrinky dink pendants and using the same method, make jewelry to rival the scrabble tile pendants.

I basically just followed this tutorial but instead of using scrabble tiles, I cut out some basic shape out of shrinky dinks in differing sizes, baked them, and then decoupaged the washi paper on to it.

You can seriously make any shape and size of pendant that you can imagine and the results are stunning to say the least.



























I'd love to hear your thoughts

Oh my gosh!!  What a great idea, to decoupage and paint these!  I have been making shrinky sinks from recycled #6 plastic and coloring it with permanent markers before I bake it.  This totally opens new ideas, what a great idea!  Thank you for this post so much, I am hitting this rocks right now!   Grin

Wow!  These are fantastic.  I love the patterned paper you used and the variety of shapes.  Now I've got to try this!  Did you use Mod Podge to decoupage it or something else?

What a great idea! I'm going to try this with the origami paper I have. I was just trying to think of what to do with my SD paper! Cheesy

edit: I just made some Shrinkies and used origami paper to decoupage mine. Thanks for the idea!

oooh, pretty things!

Those are so nice, they don't even look like shrinky dinks, they look really fancy.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.
