This was a RAK from my upline. She stamped the bag topper and added the tag. Inside is a pipe cleaner heart which was dipped in a solution of boarx overnight and crystals grew on the pipe cleaners. So the heart looks like it's covered with sparkly diamonds. The little kids love it!

This would be a great gift for valentines, please share where you got the borox solution. Did you just dip and wait until it dries? Please email instruction, if you don't mind... firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance =)

Add 1/2 C. borax (powder) to 2 C boiling water. Mix.
Add pipecleaner heart and let it sit overnight. It will form crystals as it cools. This is a great science experiment for kids to see how crystals form! What a bonus huh!? (Borax is found in the laundry aisle at the grocery store.)
