Make Your Own Fluff

After viewing a number of videos and reading to many tutorials, I found this and think this was best one. Holly did a great job with this here is link to original tutorial http://hogwildaboutstamping.blogspot.com/2009/10/make-your-own-flower-soft.html. 
She has an amazing blog and from what I have seen I love what she has done, so be sure to visit her blog you won't be disappointed...I am heading back to look at what she has done..so many ideas!!

I have used just the plain white on cards as snow and it looked great. I have also made the colored with regular food coloring and mixed colors for variety. Now I am going to get reinkers because there are colors you just cannot recreate with food coloring.

Here is the tutorial Enjoy!! Her video is below the photos, and is very well done!
I bought some of these styrofoam balls at the dollar store

Then I simpley rubbed them together and let it grate itself! Here is a comparison of the styrofoam and the polar white flower soft

Then I wanted to try my hand at coloring it. I used some re-inkers and just laid some drops around a pile of styrofoam and then mixed it together with a pencil. It worked great!

I made a video showing you how I did it. It's quick, easy, fun, and a real money saver! Plus if you only need a little of a particular color you can make as much as need! Here's the video. I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for looking!
