shrinky dink time wasting
please excuse the bad photos but it is 3am.
So, look what fun I have been havng with shrinky dink. I made a red riding hood bracelet and a bear/girls necklace. aren't they sweet, I found the images in some of my japanese craft books and just transferred them onto the shrinky dink, cooked them, and put them on 'leather' thongs.
I am supposed to be packing, we are going camping tomorrow (today!!!) in the morning anyhow, but I got distracted. There was a purpose to the beginning of the crafting, as I am to be doing a few workshops with the young people we are taking camping, and I wanted to remind myself how small shrinky dink shrinks for when we make pendants etc. I couldnt remember as all I have made recently is pins and they go very small!
So, I am very pleased with my results, ok, they could have been flatter, but I wasn't quick enough with the bread board on top as I pulled them out of the oven!! I am also going to have to find my pliers, as its gonna break my teeth fixing all those little metal rings on otherwise!!
Anyhow, must go and finish throwing things at my suitcase, did I mention its 3 am? and maybe (who knows) go get some sleep.
back in about a week xx
