DIY Shopkins Scratch and Sniff Stickers

Do you remember scratch and sniff stickers growing up?  I was shopping at Michael's and saw scented embossing powder.  I started googling for reviews and found a forum that mentioned you could make your own scented embossing powder using KoolAid.  This made me think of making my daughter Shopkins Scratch and Sniff stickers.  I really am impressed at how they turned out.  The smell is strong and its been about three weeks and the scent is still strong!

See my youtube tutorial here on how to make your own Shopkins (or any image) scratch and sniff stickers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC3jjgUvC58

How to Fold Glass-like Stars

This is a continuation of my up-cycled cellophane packaging tutorials.  I am going to show you how to fold little stars with cellophane packaging.  Here is a tutorial on how to fold a paper star or a video version here.  With all these cellophane tutorials, it is always best to practice on paper first and get the hang of it before you venture off to cellophane.  Cellophane is much harder to work with because it is more slippery and stiff.

Note video tutorial is updated.

These are my pictures, but watching a video on how to do this is much easier.
1.  Use a ruled paper underneath as guidelines to cut cellophane into strips. The strips I cut were about .25 in.
2. For larger stars use wider ruled paper. Note that length of paper should be at least 30 times of width.
3. Take cellophane and "tie into a knot" and flatten.
4. Fold over the short end and then the long end along the edges
5.  Tuck end into flap.
6. Pinch into star shape.

Stay tuned to see what I do with all these cranes and stars.
