I broke my no glitter rule to make this fun embellishment.
I was super happy to discover that the XXL Glue Dots can be punched out using a paper punch! Isn’t that cool? I was afraid it wouldn’t work but what was the harm in trying? I figured I could sacrifice a punch to try it…and/or my hands in case it was really hard to punch through. I was surprised and pleased to find that it didn’t mess up my punch AND it wasn’t hard to punch through at all! YAY!
I just had to have that Martha Stewart 4 Leaf Clover punch last year. Then I didn’t use it until this year. Can I roll my eyes at myself? LOL!
It’s so easy to make a quick embellishment for cards, scrapbook pages or for any crafty need you have! I would test the finished product before slamming it shut in a scrapbook though. You want to make sure you don’t have any areas not covered by glitter so it’s not still sticky.
How to Create Glue Dot Paper Punch Embellishments
1. Using your choice of paper punches, simply punch through an XXL Glue Dot® .
2. Carefully peel the backing off of one side of the punched out Glue Dot® and stick it to the surface of the item you want to decorate.
3. Once the Glue Dot® is stuck to your preferred surface, peel the other backing off of the final side.
(under the glittery photo below are the rest of directions)
4. Pour glitter onto the exposed sticky side of the Glue Dot®.
5. You now have a beautiful and glittery embellishment!
That was so easy!
