For paper-crafters who are interested in making their own tie dye paper. This fun and messy tie dye paper "recipe" leads to lots of fun with the kids and several sheets of pretty paper for scrapbooking and card making!
Approximate Time varies
food coloring (liquid) and/or stamp ink refills (i.e. Stampin' Up Ink Refills)
white card stock
shaving cream (unscented is best)
cookie sheet or other shallow pan
paper towels and soapy water
Spread shaving cream in the bottom of the cookie sheet, making sure to cover the whole pan.
Choose the colors from the food coloring or dyes. Sprinkle drops of the colored dyes onto the shaving cream. (if using a normal sized cookie sheet, use maybe 15-20 drops of dye)
Using the spatula, swirl the shaving cream and dyes around to make some colorful swirls.
Take your white card stock and lay it face down in the colored shaving cream.
Carefully remove the card stock and, using the spatula, scrape the excess shaving cream off. Dispose of this excess shaving cream.
Set the tie dyed card stock aside to dry.
This is relatively messy, so I recommend doing it outside or in the kitchen.
The first few sheets of card stock might not be great, but after the those few, the tie dye starts coming out a lot prettier.
Try different color combinations and keep in mind the colors that are created when you mix two different colors around in the shaving cream.
