Valentine Project


     I was recently invited to do a craft project at a sweet young lady’s 13th birthday party.  She had a few friends over to stay the night and thought that a crafty project would be fun to do.  She was right!  It was a lot of fun!  We shared quite a few laughs.  This was the project that we did.  A sweet little Valentine card with coordinating altered 100_4368envelope and pillow box (of course, with chocolates) :)  It was lots of fun designing for 13 year old girls.  I don’t get to do that often.  All I could think of was glitter…and glitter and glue everywhere!  Ah, but that wasn’t the case at all.  I pulled out the Red Glimmer Paper.  Love this stuff!  No mess, no fuss, no clean up!  Perfect!  This paper holds a nice curl too!  Simply twirl it around a wooden skewer or piercing tool.  Don’t try to curl it like you would curling ribbon.  You know, pull it along a pair of scissors.  Nope…glitter will fly everywhere.  I know because I tried it.  I won’t go into detail on the how-to but I will give you the supply list.  If you have questions, just drop me an email.

     The girls seemed to enjoy the projects.  We did have a nice time.  I was so honored to be asked to share with these young ladies (many whom I’ve known since they were in 1st grade).  Thanks for having me, Karen (and Tricia).  I’ll be happy to do it again anytime :)

     And thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to give your Glimmer Paper a twirl :)
