Create your own glitter rubon

By Maggie Lamarre
Hi Everyone:
This is a simple technique you can use other shapes, such as flowers etc...

Supplies needed
PC
Font of your liking
Printer
Paper
Glue
Sealant
Glitter

Page protector from the $ store, I brought a package of 10 for $1.00.

Let's begin!

Open your document and type your sentiment using any font in my case I needed love I use Lainie daisy font.

I also made sure the size will fit into the area I'm going to adhere the rubon on.

2. Print the word

3. Cut a piece of the page protector and put on top of the word.




4. Trace a fine line on top of the word



5. Add the glitter, flick the back of the glittered to remove excess.

6. Let dry 30 mtes then spray a thin coat of sealant let dry another 30 mtes and it will be ready to use..
Once it's dried use a brush to remove the excess glitter.

Voila you are done!




Have fun, Create your ART.

Maggie

Sorry to sound silly but now you have the glitter & glue on the page protector...What next? How do you get it on the page without loosing all the glitter?

I am not Maggie but from what I read I think the sealant is the key to keeping the glitter intact.

Hi:
The rub on you can leave it on the protective sheet and cut around it to use like a transparency, or you can easily peel it off the sheet protector and and use zip glue to adhere..
Great question..
