Glitter glitter everywhere

Yesterday Junior and I got busy with glitter and glue to make some Christmas cards for the Kids Craft Weekly annual Christmas card swap. We have been checking our e-mail daily awaiting our list of 10 people to send the cards to and yesterday it arrived. So I thought we better get cracking on the card making straight away so we can get them in the post in time.
We have to make 10 cards fairly quickly so we opted for a simple glitter stars effect using some cookie cutters to apply glue to our cards and then Junior got shake, shake, shaking with the glitter. He loves glitter but I'm not usually very keen because it does get everywhere - I even had to wash it out of Puggle's hair last night!
Anyway the cards are now dry and today we will add a little bit of glitter glue and sign them all so they are ready to go to the post office tomorrow.
We have to send cards to the US, Malaysia, Germany and another family in Australia so we will be getting out the atlas to see where they are all going.


  1. I may have to take a page out of your book yet again. When I gave my girl the card stock to get going on her design as requested, she had a total meltdown when I explained that these cards weren't for her classmates. I need a different approach or I'll be making these cards myself! ;)

  2. That sounds like a fab idea for applying glue- I hadn't thought of that one- thanks :) x
