Make Your own glitter letters and anything is possible

      Make your Own Glitter Letters

The one on the left was purchased and the one on the right I made.

I love scrapbooking ,but have ever noticed how much those letters cost. It is sort of crazy to pay five dollars for three of each letter. They never go one sale either I think it is some sort of conspiracy .So  I thought I would try making my own. I am not going to lie and say it took me twenty minutes but it was really easy and turned out really cute. So here is list of the supplies all can be found at Micheals stores or any other craft store.

  •  good quality glitter ( I used Martha Stewart’s glitter)
  • Mod podge
  • A cheap brush I used this foam brush
  • Pre cut letter ( I used my Circut but any letters will work)
  • Cupcake warpers ( to keep the glitter contained for clean up
  • gloves (optional to keep hands clean) 

I just painted the letter with Mod Podge and sprinkled on the glitter and let them dry. That is it really simple. It was time consuming about an hour. I love the result and was defiantly cheaper then five books a pop.
on personal note my birthday is this next Wednesday and I am feeling a little stressed about it. See I am turning thirty and well I thought I would have some more stuff figure out by now. However, I have realized that maybe it isn’t about that anymore I don’t need to figure out I just need to make it all happen. I have always loved planing,but I have noticed lately I need to through out the plans and do what makes me happy because life is not going according to plan. I have spent most of my life taking care of other people and their families and now it is my turn to take care of me and my family. It is exciting, but I am scared to death at same time I am not good at change. This year is going to be full of surprises and happy moments to come. Anything is possible.


  1. No ,it is a machine that cuts out shapes using a cartridge. It is expensive ,but it worth it if you need to cut out a lot of different shapes. There are other machines like Cricut. out there one of more popular is called Slice . I have never used it to so I am not sure how it compares to Cricut.
