Glitter window tutorial


Here is a tutorial for the glitter window. This glitter window is different than the ones I've seen before. Usually, a glitter window has an image behind it, and the glitter window is covered with Dazzling Diamonds.

This glitter window technique was demonstrated at the Milwaukee Regional by Laura Barto. I made my window using the Coluzzle, but Laura used punches to make hers. For example, you can take a 3X3 square and punch the rounded tab punch twice to punch out a circle.
After you have your window, cover it with clear packing tape. It's OK to use more than one piece of tape to cover a large window because you won't see the seam when you're done.
Turn the window over so the sticky side faces up.
Put a shape in the center of the window. Make sure the edges are stuck securely to the packing tape. (Here, I've already adhered the window to the other layers of the card.)
Pour glitter over the entire window. Pour off the excess. Use your finger to press the glitter into the packing tape and wipe off any stray glitter.
Happy stamping!
