Today, I am going to show you how I made this card below with a wooden sun and glitter:
Step 1. Let's gather our supplies. Choose the object that you want to cover with glitter. For me I chose this wooden sun by My Minds Eye. The other supplies are a paint brush, Mod Podge, and Glitter.
Step 2. Next, grab your paint brush and fill it up with the Mod Podge.
Step 3. Liberally paint it onto the shape, making sure you get the edges as well.
Step 4. Before we get to applying the glitter I highly recommend laying down a piece of paper or cardstock to catch the glitter that doesn't adhere.
Step 5. Sprinkle, Sprinkle, Sprinkle! (This is the fun part. ;) )
Step 6. Now, we wait for about 10 or so minutes. (This is the least fun part. But don't skip it!) Then turn your shape sideways and shake off the excess glitter.
Step 7. Now you are done and capable of going forth and making shiny projects with your sparkled up embellishment.
And there you have it!
Using this technique on your layouts
If you would like more inspiration on how to use this technique on a layout instead of a card, here is a page I made recently for the Crate Paper blog using their Little Bo Peep line. The wooden frames worked perfectly for a base to adhere the glitter.

I hope you enjoyed the post today and are inspired to make your cards and pages just a little more sparkly!
