Homemade "Glimmer Mist" Recipe

Hey everyone!

Don't you just love these little bottles of bling....

But hate the hefty price tag that comes with it! If you're a frugal scrapper like myself then keep on reading!

I started making these little vials of joy almost as soon as my supplier brought in Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist products. I was tempted to get some for myself but quickly changed my mind because I only wanted one bottle in 3 or 4 different colors to test them out instead of paying the minimum wholesale order amount per bottle, yes I'm a cheapy!

So, below is what you'll need to make you own homemade glimmer mist!


Ranger's Perfect Pearls
Ranger's Mini Misters
Heatgun (optional just for drying)

Take your Mini Mister and add some water (don't fill it all the way up!) keep at least an inch free of water, then add some Perfect Pearl Powder, depending on how light or dark you want your mist to be! (try mixing and matching your powders for awesome color combos). You can also add a tiny drop of Ranger Reinker to kick things up a notch.

I made mine using Perfect Copper Powder and just a splash of water!

As you can see, you get lots of shimmery goodness! A little powder goes a long way!

After trying and loving this glimmer mist recipe I had completely forgotten about the original ones! Kristen, has been using them on her fab projects here and on the gallery so I figured I'd share my frugal alternative with you!

Hope you'll try this at home! *hugs*
