Tye~dye fun

Jessica has decided she wants to do a tye~dye party for her birthday. So we have been searching a way to make an invitation. I came across this idea:

Use a regular coffee filter


flatten it

color it using Crayola washable markers
(we also used the RoseArt washables, but the color did not come out as bright)

fold it in half


keep folding it until you get a small triangle (3 folds)

drip water on it
(I actually wanted to use a spray bottle, but couldn't find one so we just used a straw)

unfold it

lay it on a flat table to dry


Look at how many we have done!


The plan is to cut them, paste it to the front of an invitation and taadaa! A Tye~Dye invitation!!
I will let you know how that comes out!

Very cool! She should have a lot of fun doing that! How old is she? I think she around Mason's age, 11! Mason just did a back to school tye dye party and had a blast.

Great idea I might have to steal it in the future! I also like the fun pics between Friday and now. Wish I hadn't missed them. Now I won't because I finally got you on my blog roll. I don't know what was happening before. Go ahead, take a look and you'll see you're there now.
