I made these cute little skull charms by printing a cute clip art off google, then tracing them onto a cut-up milk carton.  I put duct tape over both sides of the milk carton, then drew the faces on with Sharpie.  I poked holes in the top for the jump rings, and realized as I was handling the charms that I was rubbing the Sharpie off!  So I fixed the rubbed - off spots and then put packing tape over the charms to protect the marker.  Then I put them on black jump rings and affixed them to a black chain - very Halloween-y!

I really like the texture that the duct tape gives them.  And the flowers are super cute.

I agree with your fans here - those are cute. A great way to accessorize a costume! Or in the days leading up Hallowe'en when it is not possible to wear a costume.

But I am confused by what you said (although it may just be the time - I've just been woken up by an unexpected phone call after very little sleep).

"... and then put packing tape over the charms to protect the marker."
Would that be transparent packing tape?
(My confusion stems from thinking that packing tape is a solid colour, probably brown - like masking tape.)

yes,  I meant transparent packing tape   Grin It's been so long since I've even seen brown packing tape anywhere that it didn't even occur to me to clarify!  haha!  Sorry 'bout the confusion!  Smiley  I think I may be forced to create some matching earrings, as well!

I too thought they were shrinky dinks. Finding out they were duct tape made them extra cool Smiley
