I got some shrinky dinks from Joann's for 3 bucks... on sale..

Me and my cousin got to work and started making things for necklaces and stuff. Like earrings and little charms.

Next time, she's buying the shrinky dinks. Since she used like half of mine.

Here are some of the necklaces:

Clandestine bat

MCR w/gun (got very warped and stuck folded while in the oven, so i fixed it with a fork.)

Skull and crossbones necklace for my mom

and here are the earrings i made:

lightning bolt and a 324384023984 pointed star thing, whatever you want to call it


and i made these with weird beads

and here are some other things i made for necklaces, just haven't attached string yet:

Hello Kitty (first shrinky dink thing i made, and i didn't know the black would smudge. i also forgot to put a hole in it.)

a heart

a daisy thing

and a Totoro!

I'll be posting more soon, once i get more sshrinky dinks.

Too bad yours turned out better than mine, but nothing beats my Bob Saget necklace :]

I've never had much luck with shrinky dinks- due to extreme warp-age. haha but these turned out fantastic!

Warp-age means you didn't leave it in long enough....leave it in 15-30 secs AFTER it flattens back out.

iamthe_disco nice work!

 Smiley thanks!

The mcr one is my favorite too, haha.

This is the first time i've ever used shrinky dinks, and i'm very surprised they came out as well as they did. I left the MCR one in for about 15 seconds after it sort of flattened out... but i got worried and took it out because it stuck when it curled. But it's not as warped-looking as the first one i screwed up on.. haha.
My brother also had fun making his own skull necklace.

And i don't know if she posted them or not, but my cousin (parapluie, first reply on here) made some too. Using half of my shrinky dinks.
