Glitter, so much GLITTER

How many of y'all remember your 1st day of school?
Butterflies in your tummy?
Excited to meet your new teacher.
Show off new shoes.
Get to use new school supplies.


It all gets better now!
How?
GLITTER SCHOOL SUPPLIES!
SO MUCH GLITTER!!!
Okay we have to admit our guilty pleasure is
Target commercials

Did I hear you ask how we get our notebooks so
GLITTERY?


All you need are compositions books
(Walgreen's special- large $.50 small $.15)
Mod Podge
Glitter
Paint (if you don't have color glitter)
Painters tape

Tape the black strip with painters tape.


Paint cover of notebook with your favorite color.
(you can skip this step if you are using color glitter)
Let dry.
Paint cover with Mod Podge and sprinkle with
GLITTER.
(We don't have pictures, but I am sure you get the picture.)
Let dry.
Pull off painters tape.
Oops our tape wanted to stay on.
So we painted over with black paint.


Don't you want your girls to go to school this 
HAPPY? 


Now you have school supplies that have
SO MUCH GLITTER!


Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins.

  15. I know they say diamonds are a girls best friend but I would say glitter is. Great sparkle and much more economical.
