Wishing all the wonderful father's out there a VERY Happy Father's Day!
This is my 200th post! Whoo Hoo :)
I have an easy make it yourself picture tutorial on how to make your own Skittles.
I have had a few messages and inquires about how to do this so I thought I would share how I make mine.
Start out with some ziplock bags, alcohol ink in any color you want and some of these floral gems. I bought mine at Michael's in their floral department. You get a HUGE bag for I think $9.99 and I used a coupon :) There are tons in the bag to make probably more skittles than you could use LOL!
Take a baggie full of as many of the gems as you want to color and add the alcohol ink into the bag. Use as much or as little color as you want. You can always add more color.
I just squeezed about 5 drops in...maybe alittle more
Once you have the color in the bag, mix it up until the gems are coated. I made 6 different colors using all the alcohol inks I have. A pretty rainbow of color!
Next dump the gems out to dry...I put mine on some scrap paper. Spread them out so they have the room to dry completely. Let them set for at least 6-12 hours to ensure they are completely dry. You can speed up the process by using your heat tool but be careful that you don't shoot the gems all over the place :)
Here are all the completed colored gems. They are still in the drying phase.
They are so much fun to use on all sorts of different projects.
Have fun with these!
Hope you like this and will give it a try. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day :)
