Dip Dyed Stationery DIY

Rate this post

These dip dyed stationery sets are perfect for writing love notes on or giving to those you love as a love gift that they can use throughout the year.

What you need:
-Card stock
-Scissors
-Envelopes
-Stainless steel bowl
-Water
-Fabric dye

How to make it:
-Cut your card stock to fit your envelopes. (3″ x 5″ envelopes should cut 3″ x 10″ or 6″ x 5″ pieces depending on whether you want the fold on the side or top.)
-Put steaming hot water into a stainless steel bowl/pan and mix in some fabric dye. Use some extra pieces of card stock to test the color. Add more dye until your get your desired color.
-Dip your cards and envelopes in the dye once it has cooled down a bit. Take it out quickly for a lighter color, pull it up slowly for a ombre look, and you can bend the paper a bit to get uneven lines. (Most envelopes are going to be lightweight – don’t leave these in the dye very long)
-Once you pull them out, you can dab excess dye on a paper towel and then hang them to dry.
**Some of mine had a bit of a curl to them afterwards so I put it in between an old sheet and ironed over the sheet to flatten it out. You don’t need to turn the iron up too high for this.)
