Make: Sparkle Stickers

Friday, December 7, 2012








Here is another really simple diy: sparkle stickers. To make these I used printable round stickers like these, glue and of course some glitter. I painted on a thin layer of glue on the sticker (be sure to stay inside the lines so you can easily peel them back later) and then gave it a good heathy sprinkle of glitter. Allow the stickers to dry over night and get to stickin'; I like to use them as envelope stickers for holiday cards or on packages to make your own pretty wrapping. {holiday cards shown can be printed for free; find them here }.

I hope everybody has a great weekend! I plan to barricade myself in my house and work all weekend. The great thing about my work being embroidery is I can watch lots of movies while I work. I am thinking it's time to break out a few holiday favorites. I also got my son the new batman movie as his "big" advent calendar gift, so I imagine we will be watching that this weekend too. Last on my to-do list is to press the "check out" button on some online shopping orders, my carts are getting full! Do you all have any weekend plans? xo

  5. You are so creative, Christine! Love your DIY projects. I'm planning to work this weekend too as I had a flu and couldn't do much the last two days, and also some Christmas shopping (I've taken care of the online orders, I have a few more shops to visit and I'm done). xo

  7. So I really like this idea, a lot. But I'm scared of another glitter project after the Thanksgiving fiasco. Should I try again?

  8. You are so clever! I use craft paper to wrap gifts too. I usually hand write (in my best handwriting :) a note right on the paper, but the gold, sparkly embellishment definitely takes it up a notch. Might have to try my hand at something similar. Always feeling me with inspiration, you are.

  12. I have such a love/hate relationship with glitter. Love, because obviously. Hate, because it's like herpes. It NEVER LEAVES. I'd make an exception for this adorable DIY though!

    Good luck hunkering down all weekend! My go-to holiday movie is Love Actually. And since we're putting up our tree tomorrow maybe I'll watch it to celebrate. Oh! And writing. I'll be doing lots and lots of writing. Take care, lovely! xo
