Fall Foliage – glitter style

We can’t stop the falling leaves and we can’t stop creating fun leave decor using our glitter papers. This leaf banner uses three popular colors that are a great choice for decorating this time of year.

Supplies:

  • Bronze glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Orange glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Copper glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Metal hanger (accessory available from Tim Holtz)
  • Hemp twine

We had fun finding a place to hang this banner. After much deliberation we landed on the wreath outside our front door.

Decorating for Fall

A little banner goes a long way in adding a simple fall decor to your home. This small banner measures 10 inches when complete. We find this is a great size to drape over a photo frame, mirror or even works as a cake topper.

Glitter paper is available
in multiple sizes: 6″ x 6″,
8.5″ x 11″ and 12″ x 12″. Custom sizes are also available.

September, what’s your color?

Howdy September! The air is cooling a bit and the colors are beginning to change. Slowly. What colors do you think of when you think of September? A golden glow of rich jewel tones, perhaps with a pop of light blue?  We pulled out a few colors of our Glitter cardstock to represent September. Do you have a favorite? We are loving Copper, Bronze, Orange and Light blue together. These colors are feeling warm, fun, and a nice way to bring in a new month.

Our offices are closed today for Labor Day but we’ll be back tomorrow. Enjoy the day!

Hello! A Sparkly Copper Hello.

Hello friends! With the end of August nearing we are looking forward to a beautiful September and the start of Fall. Do you decorate for fall? We sure do. Adding Metallic Glitter Cardstock is a simple way to add a little glitz to your fall home decor.

Just like traditional paper, you can use our Glitter cardstock to cover just about anything. Our local craft store carries many words created from cardboard or thick chipboard. Here we have covered a large chipboard HELLO with Copper Glitter Cardstock. Our Glitter cardstock is available in 3 sizes; 6″x6″, 8.5″x11″ and 12″x12″.

All you need is a little time, Glitter cardstock, adhesive, scissors, sanding block and an x-acto knife.  Adhere the glitter cardstock to the Hello. We used a spray mounting adhesive. Roughly trim around the word with scissors. Clean up your cutting with an x-acto knife. Sand the edges with a sanding block and you are ready for display.

If you love our mess free and non-shed Glitter Cardstock you’ll love our Glitter Tape! Glitter Tape comes in a variety of colors and is available in four shapes: basic straight, chevron, wave and fancy wave. Add a strip of glitter the easy way. Tape rolls measure 15mm wide x 5m long.
