Tuesday Tape Tip

Good morning! Today's Tuesday Tape Tip is a tutorial using glitter. Our double sided adhesive is perfect for creating your own glitter borders on your projects. The adhesive holds glitter really well and it doesn't shake off once you apply.

Supplies: Love My Tapes Adhesive, cardstock and glitter.

Start with a strip of adhesive on your card stock. I wanted to make my border thick so I used 3 strips of adhesive show below. Notice that our adhesive doesn't break and that you get full strips of glue when you swipe the applicator.

Next sprinkle your glitter generously. I used Martha Stewart silver glitter for my project.

Next shake off the excess glitter to reveal your glitter border.

I stood the card stock up and laid some white doilies down so you could see that the glitter was adhered to the card stock well with no flaking or mess. Notice no excess glitter. We love that!

And our finished project.
There are a variety of borders you can create using glitter and with so many colors the possibilities are endless.
If you decide to give this project a try link up your creations to this post so we can take a look or upload them to our new Flickr group here.
