* shrinky dink origami pattern necklace

Posted on February 17th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry.

Trace pattern from piece of origami paper onto shrink plastic with a sharpie and ruler.  Cut out.  Punch hole.  Melt.  Add jump ring.  Pretty necklace!


I love how it turned out and I’m currently wearing it with a V-neck.  I think this might be my final excuse for buying one of those geometric pattern coloring books I had as a kid.

    What a great idea!

    I remember playing with this when I was younger, but something like your necklace is definitely better suited to my taste now.
