I had trouble finding embellies with Mickey bars on them, so I made one of my own, using Shrinky Dinks. Michael's and Hobby Lobby sell these things.
I traced a large Mickey head frame, then added details to make it look like a 3-D bar with a bite taken out, and drew a stick to hold it. Then I colored it with a permanent marker and a gold marker for the stick and baked it a few minutes. It started out about 9 inches tall and very, very thin, and now it's about 3 inches tall and much thicker. It was so cute, I just had to share. Here it is:
Ginger, Mickey, Walt..............................In memory of the world's sweetest kitty
But I remember shrinky dinks, i love them when i was little!
You want to hear something really dorky? My friend and I had a Shrinky Dinks club and we had little shrinky dink girls from different countries to represent us. I think I was a little Indian girl and she was the hula dancer. We still laugh about it to this day because her little brother told on us because we wouldn't let him in the club. lol Any time I send her an email, I always start it by saying, "This is an official meeting of the Shrinky Dink Club". lol
Thanks! It's maybe the thickness of a dime or penny, so you can use it even if you're not really into the 3-D embellishments.
Oh that's fine, not too big at all!! I do use 3-D embellishments, but, having not ever seen shrinky dinks, I didn't know what 'thick' meant! I know, I was a horrible Mom that deprived my boys of things like that...
