On Twitter, I happened to see this from Urban Outfitters:
What really caught my eye is that set of teeny kitten face earrings: a flash back to the stick-on Lisa Frank earrings of my childhood. They're cute, quirky, and small. If a cat covered tie or dress screams "I'm a crazy cat person!" then these little post earrings just whisper it. I can handle that. Here's how to make a similar pair of your own:
You will need:
- plastic that shrinks when heated (like Shrinky Dink)
- permanent markers and colored pencils
- earring posts

I found this shrinking paper at the Goodwill Outlet Center and have been saving it for a project like this. Its kind of old, as you can probably tell from the packaging, and was a little weird. After much trial and error (and a lot of unfortunate looking, deformed cat heads), I found a good system. Hopefully, you'll have better luck that I did.
After baking your kitty shapes, attach the posts with glue.
