Week #5 of my Wish List posts. "Glitter" is what it is all about. I always love using glitter on my projects. It adds that extra "WOW" factor to a project. Yesterday I created a number of gift tags using glitter. I did wait until DH was out of town so he wouldn't have to go to work with glitter on him. lol
Deborah has "Martha Stewart" glitter over at Fargo Cat Shops. I know she has some Xmas gift packs. There are 24 "fine" glitters in the pack for $25.00. She also has some individual colors prices at $5.00 each.
How do you get the glitter to stick to your project? It sticks perfectly to me without any adhesive but for a paper project there are a couple different ways to do it.
1) Martha Stewart glue -
2 oz size has the narrow tip - this is $3.00
4 oz size is the larger one - this is $4.00
2) If you have a Xyron or sticker maker this also works well for glitter.
This multi pack is a great deal and glitter goes a very long way. Just remember what doesn't stick to the project just re-cycle it back into the container.
If you're looking for some really great project ideas for using glitter click here. I just took a quick peek at it...gotta go back and have a second look. There are lots of templates you can print too!
Looking for other ideas for yourself or someone else check out Marilyn's and Deborah's blogs.
There's a feature on this cartridge to make tags and it cuts the icon out and then I used the shadow feature to cut the colored backs.
On most of the tags I added glitter to the image that was cut out and then glued it back into the tag. The holly tag I used stickles and the snowflake and angel I added glue directly to the tag and and then added my glitter.
Time to wrap this post up. Adding to the Blog Candy today will be some bling. It will be a pack of self adhesive pearls - 50 count.
