Shaving Cream Marbled Paper for the Holidays

Red and green seemed like a difficult color combination for marbled paper since I anticipated that the colors might mix and I would end up with brown, but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. Marbling with the shaving cream is a great project to make with children. It's quic and tactile with very pretty results!




cookie sheet


red and green food coloring


large popsicle stick or spatula


shaving cream




white construction paper
This process is very simple and even smells good. Spread out the shaving cream on your cookie sheet until it is slightly smaller than the size of the paper that you are using. Add a few drops of one of your colors. Swirl the color with a fork. Add the other color. Swirl.
Press your paper on top of the shaving cream.
Scrape off the shaving cream with the popscile stick. Let your paper dry.
Mount your designs on blank cards or use as gift tags.
