- When using a glue pen, do a small area at a time, so the glue doesn't dry out too quickly.
- You can also use a glue pen to apply glitter to flowers, stickers or anything else needing a little sparkle.
- When doing a large area such as a chipboard piece, I often use Modge Podge. You can also rub a glue pad over the surface or use a spray adhesive or other liquid glue.
- Use a tray or small, flexible paper plate, so that you can easily put it back into the bottle.
- There are different sizes of glitter - the glitter I used was very fine. If you have a chunky glitter, you would want to use on a much larger, less detailed project.
- Baby wipes are a great way to clean the tray or help to get the glitter off your hands. They also help with static cling.
- Use a small paint brush, Q tip or eyeshadow applicator to brush away excess glitter.
- Be prepared - you will probably be a little shimmery for awhile! Whenever I go to a crop on Saturday, I always seem to be a little sparkly at church on Sunday :-)
- If anyone else has any other tips feel free to share!
A couple other non glitter related tips on this project. I used the left over foam dots packaging to add dimension to my cuff. Never throw it away - it is great to use on larger pieces of paper for dimension. I used a border punch for the cuff, but you could easily draw a scalloped cuff and cut out with scissors.
