I ruined my Poofer bottles!

Post by Amanda on Thu Dec 23, 2010 10:17 pm

I recently got a local supplier for cosmetic glitter... big containers at a small price! So I bought about 5 empty poofer bottles... a few from Metina at Fabbulas and a few from the glitter guy. I snipped off the ends of the bottles and when I went to use one it literally doused the poor girl in gold glitter! I mean it went EVERYWHERE! I guess I wasn't supposed to cut the end off?? Can someone tell me how to take a new empty poofer bottle and make it work? Should I poke a hole in the end instead of cut it? How big should it be? Is there a trick I don't know? Any tips would be welcome! Thanks!

you want to use a pin in the end, then wiggle it around a bit to make it just a little bigger.

No worries, I've done the same thing. I figure I'll wait until another bottle is empty and transfer the lid.

Good to know!! I got a poofer of glitter and was planning to snip the top off, but have been hesitant. I'll give the pin a go & maybe a darning needle if I need more Smile

Yeah, snipping the end off will allow WAY too much to come pouring out. Laughing Definitely try the pin trick. You can keep rotating the pin around until the hole lets out enough glitter. You want some glitter and some air to shoot out, making it "pouf".

Ooops! Well, at least girls love glitter, I know I do Smile

Sometimes, I still poof out too much glitter with the prefilled poofers. I just use a fan brush once it's dryed, to dust off excess. Wink

Hmmm, Now I know why mine never worked LOL
I use my finger to apply glitter, I get it a little humid, dip in the glitter and voila.

Hey PM me how many you will need and I can send you some replacements. I usually use a thumb tack.

LOL I'm SO glad I'm not the only one who had the 'bright' idea to cut off the tip. I guess I'm in the 'had to learn the hard way' club! I also use a pin when the holes need to be wider. Usually they are fine, but sometimes you get one that needs a bit of extra help.

Yeah, I've doused quite a few little girls in glitter, it just seamed like the logical thing to do, snip the end = glitter explosion. Lesson learned, lol.
