Shrinky Dink Charms

I've been making Shrinky Dink charms for every production my granddaughter has been in--She's been in three or four nutcracker productions, but I'm making just one nutcracker charm to represent them all.

I'll get some pictures of my granddaughter wearing it, but I just finished linking these on.

I couldn't fit all the charms on one bracelet, so I'll make two!

Hera's Staff

This is Hera's pet peacock perched on her staff--made from cardboard and paper mache.  My Granddaughter gave me the go ahead to make Hera's accessories, (headdress, necklace, and staff).  She tells me she'll be graded for her poster board with the written info, but not on the costume, so I can help all I want--yay!

Hera's Golden Necklace

My Granddaughter's costume is getting done bit by bit--This is Hera's golden neck-plate necklace.  Two or three layers of thick paper glued together coated with a golden paper and strung with golden string.

A cut out clue as to what's to come...

A preview of Hera's costume, (she's the queen of the gods--and the goddess of motherhood)  She likes peacocks a lot!
