Glitter Tutorial

I just wanted to share a simple way to apply glitter to your project.

#1- Stamp your image.

#2- Turn your image upside down and run it through your Xyron or sticker maker.

#3- Peel the backing off of your "sticker".

#4-Pour glitter over your "sticky" image.

#5- Shake off excess glitter.

#6- Complete your project.

  5. Robyn - What a great idea. I bought my Xyron at Target over a year ago on clearance and am embarassed to say I have not used it yet :o( Now I may have to pull it out and give this technique a try. Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. What a great idea! Thank you for sharing this! The card is very cute.

  11. Hey girl. Can you help me out? I've been thinking of getting an xyron machine, but have been hesitant to... It seems that it would waste a lot of sticky in there if your image is not the same size as the sticky roll. Does that make sense? I'm on a tight stamping budget and I'm always looking for cheaper ways to do things. Is it worth it to get one of these? I'm drooling over them I tell you!

    Wonderful tutorial, thanks for sharing!
