As promise, I wanted to share a super easy way to customize your scrapbook projects with homemade resin elements using these brilliant silicon moulds from Martha Stewart.
I bought everything I needed at Michael’s with coupons I printed at their website. You can always save at least 40%. I used Enviro Tex Jewellery Resin, there may be other brands around.
What I really love is, you can make them in any colour to match your projects with just regular craft paint.
It’s great, because I never use all the colours in sets they sell at the craft stores. Some of the colours are always weird, right? This way, I don’t waste money on products I’ll never use.
I make 1/2 oz of product for about 6 resin flowers:
Measure 1/4 oz Resin with 1/4 oz Hardener with 1/4 tsp craft paint
Following package direction, blend thoroughly.
Pour into Silicon Moulds and let set for 24 hours.
These moulds are just amazing! After 24 hours, with the slighted bend of the mould, your hardened resin elements pop right out.
They’re ready for your scrapbook pages and other projects. I cut out some cool shapes with a die cut.
I used Rangers Glossy Accents to affix them to the die cuts and voila, it’s now a pretty gift card topper!
