Since a project at Christmastime, I’ve been a little scared to use glitter again. I was cleaning up green cosmo glitter constantly and I couldn’t believe what a mess I had!! So before making a sample for my next stamp camp that I wanted to use Dazzling Diamonds glitter on, I decided to seek help.
I found these tips great:
- Use the Embossing Buddy on your project prior to breaking open the glitter. It removes the static, finger oils and any other residue that might make your glitter linger where it isn’t needed.
- Open and use your glitter in a container like gladware.
- Use coffee filters to help keep your glitter contained in the gladware and it makes it easy to funnel back into your glitter container.
I did all three of these things and I didn’t waste glitter and it didn’t go anywhere except where I applied my 2-way glue pen on my card! I was so happy for my successful adventure with glitter that I have no fear breaking it out at my next Stamp Camp!
Adhesive good for glitter:
- 2-way glue pen
- Sticky Strip (if you want strips of glitter)
- Mono Multi Adhesive
- Heat & Stick Powder
