{Weekend fun} Nail polish notecards

I think we’ve all seen the nail polish marbling of crockery on the blogs…. but I don’t like a mess (!) so I decided to try using nail polish on notecards.

This is another craft you can do with the kids but as always, I suggest making the thing by yourself first so you at least know how to troubleshoot, if necessary.

Supplies

  • Nail polish (I used bottles I was about to toss anyway because they’d thickened) – you can use old or newer ones where you don’t like the colour on your nails
  • notecards, gift tags, standard (10 X 15) cards
  • envelopes (if you want to get really cute)

Method

  • Prepare your area with some newspaper or scrap paper underneath
  • Decide on your colours and patterns
  • Have at it!
  • I made some matching envelopes just because they’d be cuter

(these are the cards I did; the kids’ ones are a lot more… colourful!)

Can you think of any other nail polish crafts?
Would you make these notecards?

If do you make them, post them to instagram and tag me @marcia0608 and #organisingqueen. Thank you!

  1. Oooooh but I LOVE this craft! Son2 and I will have a ball doing this. I must admit I never thought of doing a craft with old nail polish or with the colours that I don’t like. I always seem to give them away!

      Have you done some yet?

      I just used 4 cards that the kids made for birthday cards for Feb – I’m going to make some more this week for my Happy Mail project 🙂

  2. An interesting way to use those thickened nail polish that I’m about to throw away. I will try this sometime
