Say it with an emoji! I was meandering through the craft store the other day, and it hit me! Or rather the giant emoji pillows gave me a great idea! We definitely needed to make emoji slime as soon as possible. I picked up a few packaging jars, made some labels, and whipped up a couple batches of our super simple homemade slime recipe!

I  like to let my slime sit for about 15 mins and then I play with it for another few minutes to get that nice, smooth exterior you see. Homemade slime does start out looking a bit more stringy than you would think {as you can see above}. However, it looks awesome in the end.

Once you have your awesome ball of slime, it’s time to fill the jars or containers! You can easily rip off a piece of slime and push it into the container. Close the lid and add your emoji label!

Click on the black download button below {or the emoji label picture}. I would suggest printing these on glossy thick paper and using 2-way tape to stick them on the jars. You can also printout a color copy and take it to a local copy store. Alternatively, the regular color copy labels work fine too 😉
