I've been waiting to show you this very fun project and its just the perfect time with the PPA's current Anything But a Card challenge. Aren't these 'fun' earrings?? I hope the recipient thinks so!! Do you remember playing with shrinking dinks when you were younger? What fun it was to watch them shrivel up? Well, I got to be a kid again and play with some shrinky dinks :) FUN!! Last year I had made these adorable wine glass charms using shrinky dinks and hoop earrings found at your local craft store. So, why not actually use the hoops for their intended purpose and make earrings?! Easy enough...
*Ran a piece of shrinky dink material through the Big Shot with the Snowflake #2 die. (Fun)
*Pressed my VersaMark pad all over my snowflake and added Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. (More Fun)
*Using my Heat Tool, and a popsicle stick (to keep the arms of the snowflake from sticking to each other in the heating process) I watched the magic of shrinky dinks :) (even more fun!!)
*Wait a few seconds to allow your transformed snowflake to cool. Popped out the Turquois rhinestone in the Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads and adhered to each side with Crystal Effects.
*Slipped on some beads, from the local craft store, and my snowflake onto the wire earring hoop and viola we have a fun dangly accessory. Did I mention this was fun? :) He he, love it!!
Hope you enjoyed my anything but a card project :) I wish you a very safe night bringing in the New Year with loved ones! A VERY Happy 2010 to you all! I'll be away until January 4th and then I'll be back to kreating with some new toys :) Until then, happy stamping...
