Happy Halloween With Art Glitter and Globe Craft Memories

Welcome! It's Linda again! Thanks for joining us in this Art Glitter/Globecraft Memories Cross Promotion! I'm sharing a cute little project that takes no time at all to create and it can be made in any theme to fit the occasion! This is so cute tied onto a gift bag or used as a home decor accent hanging from a cabinet knob. Materials used for this project are: Art Glitter Butterscotch Ultrafine Opaque 350 Globecraft Memories Piccolo Decorative Accents: Happy Halloween Harvest HP03 Ranger 2" Memory Frame Ranger 2" Clear Glass Black Acrylic Paint Xyron 2.5" Create-a-Sticker Manilla Tag 6" strip of black ribbon Type-written or stamped BOO on white card stock 2" square of Halloween-style scrapbook paper 2" square of plastic packaging or packing tape.

I started with Globecraft Memories Piccolo Decorative Accents Happy Halloween Harvest HP03 set. These cute little accents are made from a quality grade compressed bookboard. This will be sturdier than standard chipboard and hold up well to paint, inks and embossing. I chose to take the quick-and-easy way out and simply painted mine with black acrylic paint. After they dried I brushed them with two coats of Glossy Glastique. This acts as a sealer and gives the pieces a glossy finish. I set them aside to dry. Lay the 2" clear glass on the manilla tag and trace around it with a pencil. Cut inside the lines. Run this square through the Xyron 2.5" Create-a-Sticker to coat the entire piece with adhesive. Sprinkle generously with the Art Glitter Butterscotch. Tap off excess and set aside. Cut each letter separately for the word BOO and ink all edges with black ink. Pop up with dimensional foam tape.
r To assemble, place the scrapbook paper on the square of plastic packaging or packing tape (this protects the back side) with the pretty paper showing out (through the packaging or tape). Layer the glittered paper on top of the backside of the pretty paper. Test placement of painted pieces then glue in place with Designer Dries Clear. Add BOO. Set the entire piece inside the Memory Frame and close up. Add a pretty black ribbon to the top and enjoy! Hop on over to my blog to see another glittery project!
