Color Your Pages with Shaving Cream

Shaving cream can be used to craft a marbleized effect on your paper. This type of design is a wonderful change for a page background or exclusive photo mats.

Supply list:

Shaving cream (not gel)


Cardstock (heavy weight paper)


1. Put the shaving cream in a shallow pan.

2. Swirl the re-inkers into the shaving cream.

3. Press the cardstock into the mixture making sure to cover the entire area then pull out the paper.

4. Wipe off all extra shaving cream with a paper towel and let dry.

You will be left with a marbleized design of your own creation. You can use a variety of colors and create a your own unique pattern to suit your scrapbook pages.
