I bought a packet of Shinky Dinks at Michael's a few days ago and decided to try make a bracelet. It was inspired by Etsy user kortadoodle's pendant.
Each square is about an inch per side. Really happy how this one turned out, considering I've never used Shrinky Dink before. (I tried making a pair of earrings after this, but I used non-permanent markers and they bled ALL OVER the place when I tried to glaze them Sad .. you live, you learn.. Wink)

Woah, I've never used shrinky dinks, but this one looks amazing--definitely going to look into acquiring some now.

This is beautiful!

I'm inspired to make something kinda similar by your work!

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

This is great! We tried shrinky dinks in craft class at school last year, but none of what we made came out quite right. Of course, we weren't using the store bought kind, so maybe we did it wrong.

But yes, this is totally awesome.

Thanks all, they're absurdly easy to do Smiley I just bought some clear Shrinky Dink today and I'm excited to see what'll come of that ... Cheesy
