Glitter Play

A while back I got a great deal at Michaels on a Martha Stewart glitter set: 24 tubes of glitter plus glue stick.  I bought it (half off!!!) but did not know what I was going to do with it as I had never really used glitter with my scrpabooking before and I only recently started making cards. I tried it out on a few cuts, but the glue was messy and so I sort of gave up on the whole thing. 

These cuts (Happy Birthday and Crown)
are both from Once Upon A Princess
Later I went to the Cricut Circle message board and asked what people used to put glitter on things.  A few people mentioned using a sticker maker, like the Xyron so I stored that information away until I could use it.  I found a reason!

I am happy with the results of my new glitter experiements. The Xyron worked great and the glitter seems to have stuck on pretty good.  I am not saying it wasn't a mess of glitter all over the table, but much better than the first glue I tried and now the pages are stored away in page protectors! Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
