I saw some dinosaur skeleton necklaces at Claire's this weekend. They were small though, and not as cool as these. I am definitely going to try this soon!

Okay, I tried but failed..just a bump in the road. Mine curled up Sad Any tips on how to keep this from happening? Also..I just used shrinky dink paper my kids had and it was the kind with the frosted look on the back. Is all shrinky dink paper like this or is some totally clear and which kind should I use? Also..one more thing..what are pencil crayons? Colored pencils? I used a black sharpie, but someone mentioned pencil crayons for other colors. Would they mark on totally clear paper? Thanks for all the help.

I use the frosted 'ruff n ready' shrinky dink paper, its the only kind Ive tried. You need to color on the frosted side and cook it frosted side up in the oven. and yes, colored pencils/pencil crayons are the same thing Smiley.

As for it shrinking up, I have had that happen to a few pieces. its annoying but the best thing you can do is: make sure it's in the oven long enough and you didnt take it out too early. If it sticks to itself in the oven, I just reach in and unstick the pieces. be careful not to burn yourself though! if its still a little curly when I take it out of the oven, I fold the piece in parchment paper and then put a hard cover book on top of it and push down. It might not make it perfectly flat but it will only have a slight curve by the time its cooled off.

I think you need to have frosted paper for the colored pencils to work. if you have the completely clear stuff Ive heard you can sand it to make it frosted, but Ive never tried.

I hope this helps and good luck!

And @sweets4ever, thank you SO MUCH!

Wow, what a fantastic DIY you have! I saw the Tatty Devine t-rex necklace a while back too, but had no idea where to get the materials or how to even create something like that.
