7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Think Pink, avocado dyed pink papers. on: February 11, 2018 03:36:00 AM
Was looking at some Youtube videos about eco dying last evening and came upon dying with avocado skinpeels/pits.
So I wanted to try this. Cleaned/rinsed peels and pit with cold water. Add to a stainless steel cooking pot add 2 inches cold water brought it to a boil. Left it to simmer half hour. Saved 1/2 of it in a bowl after cooling that put it in freezer bag to freeze liquid for future use. With the remainder half of pink liquid dyed some paper.
Left the leftovers overnight on stovetop. This morning the liquid was even darker pink so continued dying more papers.
The ones of today are a darker pink. Dried most on top of the house warming units. Now I am drying some on a very low heat oven with door slightly open. Use an old pie plate with some baking paper and on top of that the papers ovendry.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Toilet paper roll into herbs/incense oval container. on: February 11, 2018 03:01:00 AM
Besides the regular herb bottles I keep some of my herb  and incense blends/mixes in this. It is a toilet paper roll squished it into oval. Then covered it with painted papers and then added printed picture of hummingbirds. The end is sealed with an oval shaped paper glued slightly into the end and the top has a slightly raised edge which you press up or down to shake out or add herbs or loose incense. It keeps upright. On the front it has a paper tag extension which folds outward to write on the name.
