It's super cute! What's shrinky dink plastic? Looks like a superb medium for this kind of stuff!

If you can think it you can shrink it!!!
Think it up, color it in, cut it out, and pop it in.
Let the shrinky dink shrink and the fun begin!!!

Or something like that

@Fighter - Shrinkydink is like a transparent sheet of plastic that you draw on, then you cut it out and put it in an oven. The heat causes the plastic to contract and harden into whatever you want. In this case it became a zipper pull.

Shimizoki was right on the money
Shrinky Dinks are sheets to plastic that you can color on and then put in the oven to shrink to 1/3rd the original size. I have tried printing straight on the plastic but it tends to run So I am back to old school colored pencil.
I took a picture of Blizzard then traced it onto the Shrinky Dink plastic. Then I filled in the color and punched a hole and finally put it in the oven @ 350os for 2 min.
If anyone wants one I will make you one for 5$ including shipping. Just post a picture that you like.
