sniff, sniff...

Welcome to another Saturday tutorial!

Do you remember way back when the "scratch 'n' sniff" stickers were popular?  As a kid, I remember thinking it was the coolest thing when I got one of those on my homework paper. =)

Well, in honor of that (and the fact that I have a whole bunch of oils left over from a princess party), I bring you scented paints. 


What you need:
Creative Inspirations Paint
Small jar or paint container
Stirring stick (toothpick works)
Essential oil 

*essential oils are often found at health food stores*

 Step 1: Put desired amount of CI paint into your small jar. 

 Step 2: Add 1 drop of essential oil.  This stuff is really concentrated, so 1 drop goes a long way. Start there. You can add more if needed, but start there.

 Step 3: Stir.

 Step 4: Use as you normally do. Here I've used it to stamp the frosting on the cupcake... Makes it smell fabulous!

The scent will fade over time, but for a card or tag, it is a wonderful little extra touch to make it special!
