Shrink It Karate Earrings
Project List:Shrinky It (any color)
sharpie fine point pen
nail polish clear
wire 20 gauge
I made these earrings a couple of years ago so they a bit worn out and I don't think I added the polish on them so they the karate kanji is disappering.
All you do is cut a piece about 2 long by 1 inch wide shrinky dink. You can make it bigger or smaller. You can also do this on black shirinky dink and use a gold marker. Write what you want but I choose Karate in Japanese Kanji. I think Chinese,Japanese and Arabic lettering is beautiful. I know there's other languages with beautiful lettering too. You can search it up-very interesting. Also don't forget to make a small hole on top either hole puncher or some other type of puncher.
For instructions on how to shrink shrinky dinks go to
After it cooled you can assemble your beads on the wire and then use either o-rings or the wire itself to connect it. I didn't use 0-rings so it is an extra.
Good place to find words in Kanji is
