Show and Tell: shrinky dink jewelry

It’s Show and Tell day on homework and this shrinky dink jewelry made by Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made is amazing.

What a great idea to use shrinky dinks and vintage images to make beautiful bracelets and necklaces.
 

Cathe shares the step-by-step process on her blog post but basically, she scanned vintage items and printed them out on shrinky dink sheets made for an ink jet printer. I had no idea shrinky dinks had gone high tech…

She then trims the shrinky dink images, bakes them and creates the jewelry pieces.

For more photos and a complete tutorial, visit Cathe’s blog – Just Something I Made. Not surprising, her shrinky dink project was featured in Country Living Magazine.
