1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can some please help me- ink-jet shrink plastic for pendants, etc.Printer ve on: April 12, 2007 10:17:06 AM
I would not recommend that because the reason that shrinky dink paper has to go through an inkjet printer and not a laser printer is the heat factor. Copy machines get damn hot inside [I worked in a copy/graphics shop for 5 years and burnt myself many a time inside]. You'd probably screw up the copier with melting and shrinking of the paper.
Do you know if I can fiddle with the settings on the copier here at work? I'd like to try photocopying on the shrinky dink plastic, but I don't want to ruin the copier at work!

I used the white sheets and just held it up against the image on my window.

Thanks, everyone!

However, I also think that it can be a trigger to any cutter out there who's trying to stop....
I think they're amazingly well done, but as a recover(ing)(ed) cutter, I agree with this.

How did you get the transfer on the shoe? Just with careful iron positioning or did you use something special?

I just traced it on with a fine-tipped Sharpie. I'm going to experiment with using a copier in the future.

The heart-shaped hole punch is such a great touch.

What is the bracelet made of, if you don't mind answering? It's beautiful. I love the rose as well. It's lovely.

I'm a long-time lurker and this isn't my first post, but I haven't posted in a while.

My first couple of tries were kind of a disaster, as the shrinky dink curled up on itself and refused to uncurl. I didn't have a hole punch, thinking I wouldn't need it, it's a luxury, blah blah blah, but I was definitely wrong. I ended up using a hammer and flat screwdriver to make a square hole.


8  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Where to donate a sewing machine? on: August 26, 2006 02:11:16 PM
I have a sewing machine that is damaged but easily fixable. Selling it is pointless and pitching it is wasteful.
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Paragard IUD on: March 25, 2006 08:24:50 PM
Any ideas for something besides jewelry that could involve a Paragard IUD? I don't really like the colors I could match it to for a necklace and I only have one, so no earrings.

I want to be able to wear it and show my IUD pride. (I have one as my form of contraception and I love love love it.)
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / First silk screening: Dominatrix top on: March 25, 2006 08:21:06 PM
Well, I busted out my new silk screening supplies and made this top.
