It's all about glitter

Hello Happy Crafters! It's time for another fantastic challenge at 7 Kids College Fund and this week it is all about glitter! Who doesn't like glitter and lots of it! It does get everywhere at times and I have been known to have it everywhere and anywhere including a shinny hinny! Entering 7 KCF will give you the opportunity  to win  a $20.00 gift certificate to the store and who doesn't want to go shopping there?!!

Update on Diet (last posting) Day 10. DH lost 9 /12 lbs and I have lost 5 1/2. YEAH, it's a start:) Pain -  my pain level went higher for three days. I was even considering going to the ER for pain management. Then it dawned on me - I was not  following the diet exactly, and was not getting enough carbohydrates for my muscles. We made sweet potato fries, and it was like a took a large dose of narcotics. I am climbing the stairs with little difficulty, stooping, kneeling and a feeling of freedom, because I can move so much more! My mind feels clearer and my spirits are back to the old me. Will this last?? Only time will tell.

Making Your Own Glitter Paper - used in the three eggs above. 


Color Card Stock
Sowang Double Sided Tape: 8.5 x 11 sheet
Die cut

Choose your color of glitter and card stock.  You want to use the same color of paper - just in case there is a small area not covered or rubbed off of the tape. 

Cut your card stock and double sided tape with your die cut. 

Peel the back paper off of the tape and apply it to your cut card stock. 

After you adhere your 2 sided tape to your card stock -
peel the white paper from the tape and cover it with glitter.

So pretty and much cheaper than buying glitter paper:)

You can see tutorials like this and much, much more in the Through The Craft Room Door Online magazine. March - April issue will be released on Saturday, March 16.
