I will preface this with....DO NOT USE THESE SILICA PACKAGES FOR ANYONE THAT MAY EAT THEM!!!!!! Not good for kids' cards!!!!!!
Okay, now if you have someone that won't EAT your card that you give them...this is a fun upcycle!!!!
I love finding uses for things! I love recycling or upcycling!!! These silica packages have annoyed me. I leave them in a new pair of shoes to be annoyed when I put them on. I kept looking at them, thinking "what can I use them on?? What can I do with them??"
I found a USE!!!!! Remember....NO EATING THESE CARDS!!!! NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!
This is the finished card....can you spot the silica package????
They start off as above. Those annoying DO NOT EAT packages.
But with a couple of drops of reinker, they look like this!!!! I inked them, mix them around in the bowl so they can soak up the reinker, then I dumped them on a paper towel to dry. Dab with an extra piece of paper towel to wipe off any excess reinker. They absorb the moisture well so they take reinker extremely well!
Now you have some GREAT new beads to place in your shaker cards!!!! For NOTHING!!! Totally free!!!!!
I made this shaker card using the Washi tape method...you can search my other blog posts, I did a tutorial on this method a while ago. VERY VERY easy!!!!!
This was another shaker card that I did using actual micro beads. I think my recycled one looks just as good!!!
