Glitter is a perfect thing to add to all your holiday crafts. Blue glitter especially looks like glistening slow, but all glitter reflects the abundant light that appears around the holiday season.

I used glass glitter for these glitter gift tags for three reasons:

  1. It makes MUCH less mess than regular glitter and
  2. It has a much better glint in my opinion!
  3. It’s not half as tacky as plain old glitter.

It’s the same glitter that I used on my glitter blocked cuff. It’s not the cheapest, but a little bit goes a long way!

What you need to make glitter gift tags: 

 

 

How to make glitter gift tags: 

 

1. Apply some decoupage to your tag. If you are simply doing blocks of glitter, make it a solid layer that will hold a solid batch of glitter. If you want to do the blue version, make a thin layer to hold a dusting of glitter.

2. Apply your glitter. For the the blue version, I put only a thin layer. Other versions got a solid, thick layer.

5. For the solid versions, you’ll need to make sure you have a clean line with the decoupage, and pile on the glitter. You can scrape off extra with your fingernails to create a clean line.
