Directions:


1.  I have this heart mold that I found online.

2.  I mixed some resin depending on how many you want to make, but you can start with an ounce or two.

3.  I mixed in some metallic pigment powder.

4.  I poured it into the mold cavities and took a lighter and popped the bubbles.  Then I let it sit to harden.  I made a second batch, and added red India ink instead of the pigment powder.


5.  I mixed more resin, separated it and added confetti to some of it and beads to the rest.

Here is the confetti I used.


6.  I poured it onto the already cured resin.



7.  Then I popped the bubbles with the lighter and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.


8.  Once cured, I removed them from the mold.


9.  I cut Mr and Mrs out of purple glitter vinyl and put it onto the paperweights.

That's it!  Now you have these beautiful resin paperweights and you can personalize them with different colors

I hope you enjoyed it and hope you found some inspiration in the project!


Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
