I have a love/ hate relationship with glitter. I love all things sparkly, but glitter drives me nuts. I swear I always get some in my eye! I recently tried glitter tape for the first time on my Crazy Clips project and I found it to be easy to use. One roll also goes a long way, and covers a lot of clothespins. It is pricey however, at upwards of $6.00 a roll when not on sale. Remember to use your 40% off coupon on it.
I also wanted to try Krylon Glitter Blast Glitter Spray. I had $1 chargers from Walmart and I found this spray worked beautifully on them. It's only downside is a fine glitter spray around your work area, so choose an area with that in mind. I bought green chargers so I tried both Citrus Dream, and Lucky Green. Lucky Green is a pretty traditional emerald green, while Citrus Dream is a golden, yellow green.
I decided since both of these projects are easy I would combine them into one post.
Sparkly Holiday Crazy Clips:
Refer to our Crazy Clips Tutorial for the How To's: http://craftingrebellion.blogspot.com/2011/10/crazy-clips.html
The basics are easy. Line up the tape on one side and adhere.
Trim the other side and ends.
Attach an embellishment with E6000 Glue. Use them as present toppers, bag clips, advent calendar clips, and or your holiday greeting cards display.
Products Used on the Sparkly Holiday Crazy Clips: I used Recollections Glitter Tape from Michael's. For embellishments I used Jolee's Boutique dimensional stickers.
The holly is from Walmart. It is called Holiday Confetti on the packaging. You get 36 in a pack for approximately $1.99. It was found by the cellophane bags in the holiday section by the garden center (not in crafts). Look by the gift wrapping area. Then find the little treat bags and boxes and look for it hanging up in that vicinity. It is labeled holiday Time brand "Confetti". It is like chipboard (not a sticker). I added small stick on red gems.
$1 Charger Redo You will Need:
Charger (I used $1 ones from Walmart)
Krylon Glitter Blast Glitter Spray (I tried Lucky Green and Citrus dream). Make sure you get the Glitter Blast (not their regular glitter spray). It will cover 6 chargers.
Clear Acrylic Sealer spray ( I used Mod Podge Matte clear acrylic sealer spray)
Work in a well ventilated area, and one that you will not mind a little glitter mist on.
Shake the can very, very well. At first I didn't get a good spray coming out, but it improved after shaking a lot.
Spray the top of your charger. Move quickly and with light spray strokes. This stuff can be drippy. If you get a drip just wipe with a paper towel, and when dry respray the area. Don't overspray. Set up an assembly line of your chargers so they all get quick, even coverage. When you start running out of the spray concentrate on the outer rims since that is what will be seen.
Spray a second coat if desired. I found one coat to be sufficient.
I am just finishing up a tutorial I love, so check back soon for it!
