I love Gentry's glitter from the Blingage collection - I know, I know, I know, you have heard me say this a time or two but I do LOVE it! It's so fine and sparkly!!
PROJECT#1: DIY CHARM NECKLACE
Supplies used: Gentry's Glitter, Sweet afternoon pink paper from 6x6 paper pad. Die Cuts also from Swee Afternoon and one pink bling brad. Other: 1x3 strip of music notes, 1x3 memory frame and glass 1x3 (two pieces), pink ink pad (Tim Holtz distress in spun sugar).
1. Cut a 1x3 strip from the pink paper, lay it pink side down on your glass. This will become the back side so that you have a nice pretty back for your necklace.
2. Lay your music notes on top. (You don't need to glue it because the glass will hold it all together.)
3. Trim your sweet afternoon banner to fit inside the frame and ink around edges.
4. Cut a heart shape from your pink paper.
5. (*Optional - ink first in pink) Cut the "you make my heart sing" into strips.
6. Put you pink heart face down in your Teresa Collins Xyron sticker maker. Then adhere your glitter to the front.
7. Put all the word strips, larger banner and sparkly hart into sticker maker and then start layering.
8. Put your charm into the frame with your glass.
9. Cut the prongs off of the back of your brad and adhere to outside of frame.
10. Add ribbon of choice to top and your finished!
PROJECT #2: DIY GLITTER ACCENT CONE
Supplies used: Gentry's Glitter, Fabrications Linen - Green Fleur de lis side B, flower, die cut. Other: Double sided tape (I used red line for this project), cream ruffle ribbon, cream satin ribbon.
1. Cut out the shape of your cone from the side b of Green Fleu de lis paper.
2. Tape along top edge of cone and add Gentry's glitter to the tape.
3. Tape your ribbon to the inside top and along the side you will be adhering the cone together.
4. Adhere the large black die cut to the front center
5. Adhere your large cream flower.
PROJECT #3: DIY GLITTER KEY
I loved this one, so easy to do and so many ideas!!
Supplies used: Gentry's glitter, Collin's Keys. Other: Glossy accents liquid glue, pink ribbon.
1. Choose your key of choice
2. Squirt some glossy accents onto one half (and I mean the top or bottom half, not top or bottom side. Hope that makes sense.)
3. Sprinkle Gentry's Glitter on the key, then I used a clothes pin to hold it on the top half to try.
4. When the bottom is done drying flip it around, glue and glitter the other side.
5. Add ribbon and your done!
This would also make a great idea at Christmas - we had a home when my daughter was younger that did not have a fireplace and we made a "SANTA" key so that we could hang it on the outside doorknob, that was a "special" way he could get in on Christmas Eve! ;)
