I don’t know about you but I am kind of obsessed with glitter these days!! I just can’t get enough! I LOVE that it adds a bit (or a lot) of extra sparkle and shine to any project or craft! And who doesn’t love a little extra sparkle! Am I right?
In my new Confetti collection I have a product of GLITTER! It comes with 4 bottles of glitter that I hand selected to match the other products in the line. I also wanted the type of glitter to be unique so I chose 4 different textures >> chunky, medium, fine and tinsel. I LOVE the variety and wanted to show you a fun way to use them by creating DIY glitter tags!
All you need is a variety of tags, some wet glue (I love Tombow), some washi tape (we all have plenty of that on hand by now), a pencil with a new eraser and glitter.
To create the tags with the diagonal section of glitter you will use a piece of washi tape to divide the tag in half on a diagonal. You can leave a lot or a little bit of the tag exposed at the bottom but that is the part that will end up glittered. Next apply the glue to the bottom portion of the tag and cover with glitter. Remove the tape and you have a nice clean perfect line! (I found that it is best to use a washi tape that is not super duper sticky. Otherwise the tape can tear the tag when you pull it off.)
Repeat the same steps but with chunky gold glitter for the black and white tags. I am in LOVE with this black and gold combo right now!!
For the striped tag you will also use washi tape but mask off stripes instead. You can make the stripes any thickness you want based on the thickness of your washi and how far apart you place the strips when you create your design.
To create the polka dot tag you will want a pencil with a brand new eraser. Dip the eraser into the wet glue and then “stamp” it onto the tag in a polka dot pattern. You can do the dots as close or as far apart as you want and really get lots of different looks. Then apply the glitter and shake off the excess. It’s that easy!!
These tags are great for scrapbooking, card making or to dress up a pretty package! I like to create a bunch at once so that I have a lot on hand ready to go when I want to use them!
Happy Tag Making!
