Introduction: How to Make Bubble Print Paper
I'm going to teach you how to decorate your own stationary using common household items :)
Step 1: Gather the Materials
You will need food dye, paper/cardstock, a drinking straw, empty containers that can hold at least half a cup of water, dish soap, and tap water.
Step 2: Mix the Soap and Water
Fill each of your containers with about half a cup of water. After that, put about a teaspoon of dish soap in the water and stir it.
Step 3: Add Color
Put 10 or more drops of food dye in the soapy water and stir it with a straw.
Step 4: Blow Bubbles
Use your straw to blow bubbles above the rim of the container.
Step 5: Bubble Print Your Paper
Lightly touch the bubbles with your paper until they pop. When you lift the paper there will be a bubble print on it!
Step 6: Let Your Prints Dry
Leave your prints at a place where they can dry. They may curl up at the edges from the moisture... If you want to flatten them, you should place them under a heavy book (on a flat surface) after they have finished drying off.
