high fashion…


craft 365 - day 254

i love making these shrinky dink rings, but DANG, that melted plastic is HOT.  someone needs to invent some thin type of gloves that are teflon coated or something for making these rings.  someone get on that for me, ‘k?  thankx.

i wanted to sell these in my etsy shop, but they’re so fragile and break after a wearing or two, so i don’t wanna risk someone being unhappy.  i might make some for craft-show time – just a little something fun to have.  for now, i’ll make them for myself and wear them til they break and move on.  i especially love the scalloped edges, different from the ones i’ve seen on etsy and flickr! 

i’ve been playing with new colors of ink and different stamps, too.  stay tuned for so much more!

    Great idea, and I just found this on Etsy!


    Sounds like selling these rings is a bit of a liability. I just started working with shrinky dinks and am finding some awesome stuff on Etsy to inspire my projects.

    Good luck!

    Oh, and find something cylindrical that is the same size as your finder (a highlighter or sharpie pen?) and use that to mold ring instead of your finger 🙂
