Homemade Glitter Paper (Sparkle & Shine: Day 1)

I just cannot miss an Online Card Class, and this Sparkle & Shine class was no exception! I love adding a little sparkle to my cards and I was excited to learn some additional ways to make my projects shine!

On Day 1, we learned quite a bit about glitter. Well, I don’t like glitter (but I DO like glitter paper!) because it gets all over the place. And I still don’t have Swiffer cloths in my craft room. BUT, I jumped right in and made my own glitter paper using clear Distress Glitter, then colored it with alcohol markers.

Here’s my card:

It was so fun, but glitter got EVERYWHERE! And I got some glitter on my markers (I hope it doesn’t hurt them). This Waffle Flower die “Magical Flower Border” was the perfect choice for my project. I added a sentiment to describe the way I felt about this colored glitter paper. You can’t tell in this picture, but that sentiment is actually bronze glitter…I thought it looked great with the colored glitter paper.

I’m loving this class so far! Thanks for all the fun!

There’s tons more to learn and try from just day 1, and you can bet I’ll go back and try a few more techniques. :)

May your days be filled with sunshine,
