Here's the little shrine I made for The Mistress T in the Wicked Vice swap....who can resist a vice like glitter?
The front:


a hollowed out glittered egg inside a super glittered up altoids tin base.  Its kind of hard to see but there is a lot of glitter and mica inside the tin and a rusted doll hand inside the egg.  I learned to rivet just so I could attach the tart tins to the base Grin  it was fun! 

Closeup:


The back:


yes, as every Craftster knows glitter is the herpes of the craft world....I made this almost a year ago and there is STILL glitter sneaking into other projects Grin

So glad you posted...I missed that swap gallery!

I love that you honored glitter, despite it being the bane of the crafting world... Cheesy

The hand and the tart tins are really great additions to the tin...

Love it--thanks for sharing this awesome swap project!

I have always loved this, especially the emergency vials of glitter that adorn the top.  Cheesy

This is great!! there is a lot of glitter there... I'm not surprised it's still sneaking around and making it's way into/onto projects!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

[scroll, scroll, scroll] Hey!  Wait a minute!  That's MINE! [click photo]

I was just re-admiring this today as I walked by on some household task and wondering about those vials of glitter and how serious an emergency it would have to be for me to break one.  I'm not even sure a glitter remedy for the zombie apocalypse would be a good enough reason.

That is SO perfect, I love all the shapes and textures!
I used to abhor glitter, but over the years it's really grown on me -dang, I guess I have craft herpes! Grin
