ALL THAT GLITTERS


Each month I hold a workshop in my home. Some of the papercrafters who attend the workshops choose to be members of Linda's Stamp-In Club. One of the perks I give to my members is a little something I created just for them in their order bag each month. For November, I decided to give them some glitter for their Christmas tree.


I chose the heart shape to symbolize my love and appreciation for them. 

To create these little beauties is very simple -- although a bit messy. These ornaments are the clear glass shapes you can find in the big box craft stores. Simply take off the top cap -- it pops out easily -- add several drops of your choice of Stampin' Up!'s reinkers, then add glitter. I used some of the fine glitter that Stampin' Up! carried awhile back. 

Before adding the glitter, make sure that the entire inside of the ornament is coated with the reinker. Add the glitter -- as much as you want since the excess will be tapped back into the container -- and tap and tap and rotate until all the colored insides are covered with glitter. I let them dry for 10-15 minutes before putting their tops back on. Tie your choice of hanger onto the loop in the cap, and voila!, you have a gorgeous sparkly ornament.


May your Season be filled with glittery wonder and happiness.

Smiles.
