These started off as cereal boxes.I painted them with acrylic paint and sprinkled cheap glitters over them .when dry I painted some cheap varnish on top and sprinkled more glitter on until they were fully covered.There is probably a better method and I will play about when I have time. They cut easily through the cuttlebug and the glitter stays on. I have cut some frame shapes using the 'bug which I will use in a scrapbook....eventually.

Hi May wanted to say thanks for the tip on pastel paper :) I didnt even think about it as never knew there was a specific paper but of course there would be lol. I shall ask about that next time i go to the art shop thanks my friend.
Love this idea too. glitter card to order and it looks fabulous. Thanks for sharing :)
I have just ordered some dog tag kind of things from ebay which have childrens names in but they look like they can be altered and i was looking for something to do some pendants etc with so hoping they come soon and i can do something with them. watch my space heehhe
Hugs June xxxx
