21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Cheap-o Shrinky Dink alternative! (UPDATE) on: December 29, 2007 08:10:52 AM
OKay, Thanx for the tip.  I have never done shrinky dinks before, but I have been brainstorming on ideas for a craft-themed baby shower.  And last night I ran across "Simply Spray" for easy tie-dye onesies and bibs, and "Shrinky Dink" decorated mobiles/snowglobes/birthday cards etc.  So I got up this morning and found some random recycled 6 plastic and sharpies and went to work.  Yonkzy it works.  I am doing a geometric circle theme so so far that is all I have.  I'll post pics once I finish.  Thanx again for the idea!!!

Can I also have the details as to how you made it, and what type of paper you used for the leaves to get that realistic crincle/texture?  Or do I need to PM you? Very classy idea.  I am such a thief Sad

This is too cute.  Too bad I have no idea what a tea towel is.  Is it literally a towel you use during tea time?

I really like the bird's-eye-view shot.  They look really cool.  I am wanting to do some Martini gel candels as hostess gifts for the new year.  But I may also try my hand at some Martini etched glasses at an up-coming baby shower I am co-hosting next year.  You did a great Job from what I can tell?  How long did you leave the armor etch on?  My friend puts a lot on for about 10-20 minutes and they always come out really nicely Wink

They are really easy to make.  I can't find the exact link but here is one


Here is what I did since it is not freezing down here in GA.  I simply took a balloon filled it to ablout the size of a softball with water.  Then I blew one extra air bubble in it, in order to leave an air pocket.  Place the balloon in a bowl or plastic container.  Then place in freezer for about 6+ hours until most of the balloon is evenly frozen.  Then release excess water from balloon and place back in bowl in freezer for another 6 hours.  By sundown they should be ready for the tiny votive candle.  They really glow brightly.  Some people add food coloring, I did not.  It took me a few tries to get my center votive hole the way I needed it.  Since it is not freezing down here they do not last long. however there is a way to add sugar I think to the balloon so they last longer.  Merry Christmas to all...

I saw this idea on the web and once on here under weding centerpiece Ideas.  We usually do regular bag luminaries on the sidewalk on Christmas eve and new year's eve.  I finally gave these a shot.

Now I just have to find the correct solution/ratio of sugar to water i think in order to make the ice balls really concentrated so they melt slower.  It is not that cold down here in GA. Wink
