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.

Large sheets are carefully extracted from nature’s canvas, pressed into thin sheets and backed with either paper or adhesive. Then they are cut and packaged into our assortment of fine products and ready to be shipped to you!

We created this USA Map home decor piece using a roll of our Rustic Birch Wood paper.
