'Tis the Season... for Glitter!

Sunday, November 22, 2009

There are just so many ways to apply glitter, this is just one... "glitter 'n tape technique". If you haven't tried it yet, you just gotta! So simple, and it really sticks. Some tapes work better than others, but almost any clear tape will work. Heck, you don't even need clear tape if you are using colored glitter. Whatever you choose to use, be prepared to sparkle!

Just a note about the music... since I'm making a Christmas card, you'd think I'd have Holiday music. But come on, how perfect is a song with the chorus "Don't you know, everywhere I go, I got the shimmerin' light on me." How could I pass that one up? And glitter and rock 'n roll go hand in hand, right?

You have the most *fabulous* ideas! I never would have thought to use just plain scotch tape. And your videos are so entertaining - my daughter always wants to watch your "opening" piece when she hears me watching one of your videos. :)
