Default DIY koolaid-lip gloss

When searching for last minute craft ideas I ran accross this. My diaperswapper friends didn't love that it wasn't natural at all, but I thought it was fun.

http://factorydirectcraft.com/factor...aid-lip-gloss/

I made it tonight. I put it in those little craft jars from the dollar tree. My thumb is killing me from opening so many of those.

I used cherry koolaid and for some reason it came out lavender.

I had a hard time mixing it in the vasaline jar. And it wasn't exactly pourable for me. After trying to spoon it into the containers poorly . . . I ended up dumping it all back in the pan to liquify. My life was much easier then.

Thanks Kocho. That looks pretty neat.

I checked at www.sciplus.com (American Science & Surplus) for the tiny jars needed for this. They happen to have just the jars right now, but no lids to go with them.

So that doesn't help much, but keep checking their site because their stock changes all the time.

Does the Kool-aid lip balm stain your fingers?

It didn't seem to stain my fingers and I had it all over me!! lol It was a bit of a messy craft. I had such a hard time opening my little containers with greasy hands from the lip gloss. lol
