Shrinky Dinks

I {heart} Shrinky Dinks!  (If you don't know what a Shrinky Dink is, click on the link and view the awesomeness!)

Well, for a Chemistry project, we had to make something out of a Shrinky Dink.  My genius idea was to make a ring.  I'm sure there are plenty of people who came up with this very same idea, and I'm sorry, you can take the credit for my inspiration if you would like it.  I doubt I was the first!

What?  You want to see pictures?  Okay!

Yes, I do know these aren't rings, but I made these too, out of polymer clay.

Oh, and once I get some more shrinky dinks, I'll be posting my 1st tutorial!  :)  I sound kinda stupid saying that...  And I guess I could do a tute for the earrings too.  Leave a comment if you want one!

Well, I'm going to go study for chemistry, so have a wonderful day!

A little expensive at 36 bucks per stache, so none for me, but hey, if you get one, let me borrow it, kay?

While we're on the topic of Mustaches, check out these other cool finds:
