You will need:

  • Set of blank cards or cardstock paper (Heads up: if you use coated paper this will not work. Some of us learn the hard way… I may or may not have tried)
  • Koolaid
  • Sharpie marker
  • Long, short plastic container

Fill your plastic container with kool aid. You can use any colour you like; I tried purple, red, and orange, and all of them worked well, but I found red gave me the best colour on the cards.


Option 1 – Straight Line:

Holding your paper as straight as possible, dip into dye solution to desired line. Keep paper in dye until it turns the desired color.

Option 2 – Ombre:

Dip your paper into the koolaid to desired darkest line. Hold for 60 seconds.

Push paper deeper into the koolaid solution and hold for 30 seconds, then quickly dip further (to desired final line).

Option 3 – Diagonal line:

Dip paper in to desired line along the bottom. Turn paper and dip diagonally.

Let your paper dry flat overnight, then use your sharpie and write any message you like on them.

If you’re feeling adventurous you can also use a paintbrush to create any design you like – the possibilities are endless! Have fun!
