Technique Tuesday!

Today I'm going to show you how to make your own Dew Drops, I call them Skittles. This is a very inexpesive way to add embellishments to your layouts and flowers. They are easy to make and less expensive than buying them at the store. The bag of filler will cost around $5.00 and you willhave enough Skittles to last you forever!!You will need to make a trip to your local Michaels for the vase filler needed to complete this project.

Making your own Dew Drops (Skittles)
Supplies needed
1 bag of vase filler – can be purchased at Michaels in the floral section
Alcohol inks in various colors
Zip lock baggies

Pour a handful of skittles (or however many you want to color) in a baggie.

Add about 5 drops of Alcohol ink into the baggie and shake until all of the skittles are colored. Add more ink if you want them darker.

Leave baggies open to dry skittles. (about 5 minutes)

Organize in a container.

Use on your layouts!

Have fun with this!!
