It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Whoever said “Many hands make light work”

… had never met my crew.

Unless by “light” you’re referring to “glitter”. Because, boy howdy, can we do glitter!

But we had a LOT of fun (can’t you tell?),

  1. They are beautiful. The drips make them look like shooting stars. But glitter, oh yes. Glitter has a half life I believe; it never goes away.

  3. The results are spectacular! The first few pictures remind me of why I went exclusively to glitter glue (that and trying to get glitter out from between the hardwood floor for about two months!)

    Great craft idea, thanks!

  4. What lovely looking cards! I happen to adore glitter, and I actually smile when I find it hidden all over the house. I may have to make some crafts this weekend!

  6. So you’re saying this is an outdoor activity for those of us who have fairer weather.

  7. Just had to tell you – after I saw this post, I decided to make these today with my pre-school class. They were thrilled with the gorgeous results!! And I was thrilled with a craft that took zero time for me to prepare, but came out so so pretty. THANK YOU MARY!! P.S. I am one of those who loves glitter. No, it never completely goes away, but I love the way it looks so I don’t mind finding it here and there for the next two months. 🙂
