I haven't had much to do since finals were over, so I re-discovered the magic of shrinky dinks and decided to make some earrings  for christmas presents.

Here's some of my latest ones:

For Donnie Darko Fans:

Because my friend is a HUGE Hanson fan:

And because everyone knows that robots have hearts:

But yeah, that's about all. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Actually, I did use sharpie! It's weird how when it shrunk down it looked more like paint or something, but yeah, I for the donnie darko ones I used a thick black sharpie, and a thin one for the keyboard and for outlining the robots. For the color stuff I just used the dinky (no pun intended) colored pencils that were in the box. Thanks for the compliment!

Yeah, it seems odd that something as cheap as those colored pencils would actually produce color. But I colored them before I baked them, and the colors ended up being more vibrant after baking (I guess because the color molecules shrunk together or something)

That's pretty awesome.
I think I'm gonna make some like this for my niece's stocking stuffer... she's 13 and trendy, so she may not appreciate the handmade gifts... but she'll survive.  Roll Eyes
