Glitter + Punches= Messy Fun!

Today I'm sharing a fun technique over at the Kreaxions Blog. By combining punches and glitter you can create some fun backgrounds! 


Punch lots and lots shapes using your favorite punch.

Apply adhesive sheet to cardstock. Pull back protective cover and begin placing punches down on the adhesive. After you're done, put protective cover back over adhesive and brayer over the protective sheet. This will adhere the punches firmly without risking touching the adhesive with your fingertips and messing it up. 

Pull off the protective cover and begin applying glitter. To be sure glitter is there to stay, burnish with a paint brush, brushing away extra. 


Supplies Used: Kreaxions Punch #312, Kreaxions Circle Cutter, Stampendous Glitter, Stampendous Snow Place SSC261 & Snowy Short Stacks SSC1058, Therm O Web adhesive, Copic
