When I had seen this necklace by Tatty Devine, I instantly knew two things.
1: I needed this right away to feed my dinosaur obsession.
2: At $180 it costs far too much and so I planned on making one.
Not exactly the same, but I do quite like it.
Tutorial (also on blog)
Step 1: Print off your dinosaur skeleton picture. The one I used I found it off google images, and you can get it off my blog or search 'tyrannosaurus skeleton' on google
(If you cant find it, send me a PM and Ill send it your way.
Step 2: Tape the picture to the plastic and trace! Instead of doing each individual piece, I made 4. Head-arms, ribs, legs, and tail. I also didn't draw every single rib but doubled up, I was afraid the pieces would break after shrinking if I did. More of a cartoon-y look in the end but much easier.
Step 3: Cut the pieces out and hole punch them at the connection points. Color them in. (You could also color before cutting, but since I was making them all black it was easier to do this way.)
Also, make sure to leave enough space for the whole punch.. I forgot until the last piece and had to squish them in. You don't want to do that too close to the edge to risk it being to thin and breaking.
Step 4: Bake as directed on the shrinky dinks package, and when the pieces are cooled, paint with a couple layers of modge podge or spray with aerosol sealer.
Step 5: Attach the pieces with jump rings, and add a chain.
C&C Welcome and appreciated! Thanks for taking the time to look.
