PHOTO: Gift box I made with my very own glittered fabric!

It's no secret that I'm addicted to the sparkly stuff. To me, glitter is a metaphor for life. The more sparkle the better. Especially when it comes to crafts!

Last year while working away at Duncan Enterprises headquarters, my co-workers turned me onto huge rolls of glittered canvas. These colorful backdrops have become regular fixtures in our house. I use them for all kinds of photos, but it's been hard to even consider cutting them for craft projects. I was determined to make my own!

I found a successful method and I'm divulging it here, only if you promise to only use my Crafty Chica glitter (available for purchase on Amazon.com) because it looks the best (IMO!!!). This is a small piece, but you can coat huge pieces as well to make amazing, flexible, sewable, durable, not-very-flaky fabric.


Peace, love and glitter from Crafty Chica!

Yay for glitter canvas.  I'm not usually a sparkle kind of girl, but this looks fun.
