Super cute '80s craft project

February 27, 2009

Dot from Dabbled has joined in the craft-a-long with a totally '80s craft tutorial, Shrinky Dinks friendship bracelets!

I wasn't clever enough to use Shrinky Dinks as bracelets. I used to make my friendship bracelets out of embroidery thread and weave them together, like this:

But this project is way cooler! 

I've been having a hard time trying to find shrink plastic in my local craft stores, maybe I'm just looking in the wrong section of the store, but as soon as I find some I am going to give this project a try.
