Photo from Wee Wonderfuls post, "shrinky dink pins"
Have you seen these handmade pinheads from shrink plastic like these DIY Designer Pin Heads and these shrinky dink pins from Wee Wonderfuls? Yeah, totally awesome! I got a package of shrink plastic in my Christmas stocking this year and spent all afternoon Christmas day experimenting with making some of my own.
I tried a bunch of different designs and shapes, and discovered it was really hard to cut out such teeny shapes from brittle shrink plastic. My hands were hurting! It would have helped to have one of those neat shape punches for scrap booking to use. I also discovered that about 1/2" to 3/4" designs make the best pinheads - anything bigger makes a pinhead that is too large.
My favorites are the teeny scissors and hearts. I also got a craft store gift certificate in my stocking, and may just look around to see what kinds of shape punches are available, because these are just too cute AND kind of addicting!
