Happy Saturday! I got a chance to play with my shipping tag freebie SVG template the other day and made these:
I was all excited to use my glimmer mist (OK, my one bottle of glimmer mist and my 8 homemade versions that work just as well!) because Elania from the gingersnap creations group showed us how to unclog our bottles of shimmer spray!
Here is what worker for me: How to unclog bottles of glimmer mist:
- pull up on the spray nozzle to remove the spray cap and soak in hot water for 20 minutes.
- poke a long straight pin down the exposed tube in the top of the screw-on spray part, this will remove any dried particles.
- take the spray caps out of the water and use canned air or an air compressor to spray air through the cap.
That outta do it! In some cases if the air does not work you can soak the spray cap longer. To prevent the mist from clogging again do not shake the bottles violently up and down, instead swirl the bottles in a “bell” type motion, trust me, it works! If you want to be really sure it will not clog you can pop off the cap and rinse the spray cap each time you use it but I’ll take my chances.
I used my cricut and SCAL software to cut some masks from cardstock and acetate to sponge ink over on the tags, they work great with the spray mists too!
If you want my recipe for homemade glimmer mist it is on this post.
These tags are for the gingersnap creations challenge to Case a Ginger and I chose Dan99, for one because I used his bird and wrought iron SVG files to make masks and two because he makes cool artsy tags all the time:)
Now I need to use these tags for something so they don’t end up in my ever-growing stack of UFOs (unfinished objects), I’ll keep you posted;)
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend and til next time happy crafting!
