Tie dye is so in this season. I watched Bev's daughter on Friday and she joined the boys and I in making these dyed paper towels for Friday art class. No rubber bands necessary!
I put food coloring into cups and added a little water. Then we folded the paper towels all crazy and dipped each corner into a different color. When all the corners were dipped, we opened the towel and laid it on some plastic bags to dry.
What do you do with these? We cut pieces and layered them on a cards. You can use them in an art journal or to wrap small gifts. Use your imagination! Just make sure to cover your table/clothes and if you don't want your hands to be colorful until after a few washes, wear rubber/latex gloves.
BTW - This is NOT the craft along project for May. I'll post that on May first!
