This was my first "glittery" project. I wanted to put glitter on some chipboard snowflakes and then use them for my thank you cards. I started with a big bag of chipboard flakes...I think I bought them from Oriental Trading a year or so ago. Figured it was time to use them.
Next, I painted each of them with mod podge and then sprinkled them with silver glitter. They turned out quite pretty I thought. After they were dry, I sprayed them with a fixative so the glitter wouldn't come off so easy.
I made twenty of them...along with that many cards. I used most of them, and then I'll use five for the exchange this month.
I made this snowman a few years ago, but Tori gave us the glass blocks. I love them. I took down my Christmas decorations yesterday, and then put up this for the month of January.
This is the last project I did. I wanted to put something up in my cubby hole in the dining room for winter. Today I went out and cut the SNW from wood. My scroll saw broke though, and I had to finish them with the band saw, which I'm not nearly as good at running. Hopefully I can get a part to fix the scroll saw. Anyway, I painted them white, and then covered a couple of letters with glittery paper. I then mod podged the N and covered it all over with glitter. I used a big bell for the "o", but I think I probably need to glitter it or at least spray paint it white so it matches better...but, I knew I was already way late posting today, so I just took a photo. I really like how it turned out though.
The blog hop is a lot of fun, and I would love it if more people would do it. It encourages me to do a little extra something each month. Check out Ashley and Danelle's blogs for more fun ideas!
