More Junk to Hang Off Your BackPack – But It’s YOUR Junk

I bumbled across this on Lifehacker: Make Photo Necklaces, Earrings, Magnets and More Using Shrinkable Plastic.  Make your own zipper pulls, earrings, nose rings, key chain fobs, dog collar fobs, cell phone fobs, wine glass fobs, e-reader fob, blah blah blah.  The technique involves the “Shrinky Dink” shrinkable plastic from waaaay back in the day, when you trace…

out a picture on the shrinkable plastic with permanent markers (which were hard to find back then, too), bake in the oven (burn your fingers), and out comes a miniaturized hard-plastic alter id of the original.  Not overly useful for kids, but for geeks?  Holy bunny rabbit, the possibilities are endless.

    Uh, I believe that should be The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch and the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog.

    @Julie They’re talking about scenes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie.
