Day 37 - Glitter. The Party Girl.
Day 37 - Oooo. Hello. Hello. Hello. Happy Saturday. Now this week is done, perhaps we have a little time today to whip up something sparkly? Man do I love sparkles and things that are shiny. Maybe I am part raccoon because I could just stare at glitter for hours. Now, I know some of your are cringing. You are thinking who in there right mind would open a bottle of glitter. It's like opening Pandora's box. It gets everywhere and into everything. It is known as the she-devil of the crafting world. Sorry haters. I am starting a PR campaign. "Glitter: The Party Girl Of The Crafting World" because who doesn't need to party?
Now that we have weirdly discussed glitter's role in modern society, let's get started on today's project. We will be creating a super festive Valentine's Day banner. Who wouldn't want this banner greeting them Valentine's Day morning? Besides, we just can't say the phrase "i love you?" enough right? So let's get to work.
The supply list is below and here are the steps:
- Print this banner (printable here) to your color printer on 6 sheets of card stock.
- Place a drop cloth or newsprint paper down on your work space.
- Cut the flags with the scissors on the printed lines. You can use an exacto blade, cutting mat and ruler if you want the flags to be precise. Use caution when cutting.
- Use the hole punch and punch one hole in the top left and right of each flag.
- Open the glue and place a pea sized amount of glue on the paint brush. Pick one pink letter. Paint the pink part of the letters with the glue and spread evenly. Work quickly.
- Sprinkle the Kunzite extra fine & tinsel glitter on the glue. Use LOTS of glitter. Let sit for 5 min and then gently tap off the excess glitter.
- Repeat with the other letters. Then move to the red hearts and repeat the process with the Carnelian & Garnet Glitters.
- Let dry.
- Using your bakers twine, place the twine end into the front hole of the first heart and string around the back. String the twine out the front of the left hole. Now, repeat inserting the twine with the pink letters starting with the "u." Complete the letters and then string on the last heart.
