I've been playing around with some printable Shrinky Dinks lately. I made these blue bird earrings that I love.
Craftster, I must share the place where I got the source image. If you haven't heard of DoverPictura yet, be prepared to be addicted. This site is eye candy for image addicts. They have tonnes and tonnes of image collections that are royalty free, and you can download high-resolution image sheets for $0.99 each. So you pay for use of the image one time, then you can craft, craft away! (I sound like a commercial for this site LOL! I assure you, I'm not affiliated, just a huge fan.
) Anyhow, if you're into paper crafts, graphic design, shrinky dinks, etc., and you want to be sure you are using images that you have permissions for, hop over here: http://doverpictura.com/
I got the blue bird image from here: http://doverpictura.com/collection/0486998541
I ordered image sheet 26 of this collection, which had my bird image and others for just 99-cents y'all!
I played around with some picture editing software and came out with this:
I took this image and a mirror image copy (I wanted the birds to face different directions in my right and left ears), imported them in MS Word to size them and lay them out properly (as well as to 'wash-out' the images as per the package directions).
Print, cut, shrink, then I used Gorilla Crazy glue to sick them onto posts.
They're so tiny and detailed - I love them.
