Dyed Rhinestones - Mini Tutorial
Why settle for clear rhinestones when you can dye them yourself using a Sharpie Permanent Marker!! These will be perfect for adding sparkle to your card or scrapbook page. Also a great way to create a birthday card with birthstones on it.
1. Purchase Jewels-Basic Rhinestones (item #119246).
2. Decide which color(s) of gemstones you want.
3. Using the Sharpie, color the top and sides of the rhinestones. You can leave them on the mat that the rhinestones are adhered to. If you do this step while the rhinestone is on your card, you take the chance of marking up the card. Remember that the pearls & rhinestones are self-adhesive, so working with them on the mat makes it much easier to store them on till needed.
4. Allow to dry.
5. Use as needed.
The rhinestones come 150 to a package. There are 50 each of 3 sizes: 5mm, 4mm, and 3mm.
You can also dye Jewels-Basic Pearls, item # 119247 using the same procedure.
