♥DIY Tutorial – Make Your Own Flocking Powder ♥

[wpdreams_rpp id=0]
Today I was a guest blogger over at One Crafty Fox!!
It was SO much fun!!!
Thank you Diana For having me as a guest over at your wonderful fun blog!
If you guys get a chance, stop by and say Hello to her!
She is such a doll :)
This is what I had the privilege to write about ..
As all you already know, I am a Mega fan of Martha Stewart and her amazing line of products!
And you also know that I am on a budget and sometimes …
OK all the time MS is a bit pricey.
So today I am going to show you how to Save $ and get super similar results by Doing It Yourself!
In one of my trips to the ever fabulous Michael’s I stumbled upon the new MS Flocking Powders.. they looked So yummy in all their pastel color glory …But… I had NO CLUE on how to begin to use them or what they were even for!

Of course I had to find out so I GOOGLED it and came across this wonderful Blog called Such Pretty Things!!
She had this AMAZING tutorial on how to use them and I fell even more in love with the Powders!
take a look for yourself
here! Her blog is GORGEOUS!!!
They make pretty paper even More pretty with fuzzy texture! :)

Here is how I did my own Flocking Powder:

1. I Started with MS Craft Seam Binding ribbon I already owned
2.Used a pretty leaf heart punched paper
3. Cut small piece of Craft Seam Binding ribbon
4.unravel it
5. Cut it super fine
6. collected fuzzy powder
7. Spread glue on desired area
8.Spread fine fuzz over glued area -shake excess off-
and your done!! How fun was that!
Now you have a super cute gift tag ready to adorn a special gift and endless possibilities ahead!
Happy Crafting!!
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye

    Looks good, Keren. Imagine if you used different ribbons at once….even adding silver/gold. I have never done this, but know where to come now for instructions. Happy Crafting, Jenny

  3. Jenny's Craft Place says:

    Keren, I am repeating this, because my computer just hiccuped (#!) and I wanted to say I liked the effect of the flocking. Imagine if you mixed colours, or added silver/gold to a colour! I have never tried it, but now know where to come for good instructions. Happy Crafting, Jenny

    Thank you so much, I have been looking for flocking powder everywhere and alot of the craft stores either don’t sell it anymore or they don’t know what it is. This is such a lifesaver! Thank you again!

    Great idea, but I was wondering how exactly did you cut the ribbon so fine enough to create the flocking powder?
