A Birth Certificate shows you were born.
A Death Certificate shows you died.
A Completed Scrapbook shows you LIVED!

An imperfect finished page is better than
an perfect page 'someday'
that only exists in your head.

Find inspiration in every day things!

Embellishing Scrapbook Pages with Flowers

How To Dye Paper Flowers

Step 1:
Mix re-inker and water in a craft jar. The ratio of water to re-inker will determine the saturation of your chosen color.

Step 2:
Use tweezers to gently and quickly place paper flower into dye bath and pull out. The longer you leave the flower in the dye bath, the wetter it will get, increasing the chances of losing flower ridges and shape. Rinse if color is too dark.

Step 3:
Lay flower on paper towels to dry. Make sure you have several layers of towels (as the inked water will soak into them).
