Hello, Laura here to share my first project with May’s fun box.
Obviously the glitter mix is quite high on the list of ‘I NEED to play with this first’ that forms when you first look through the kit. Also vying for top spot this month is the cookie cutter. I combined the two for this little whimsy trinket.
The kit contained a couple of 3D stickers – I borrowed the acetate backing that they were attached to and stick it to the back of the cookie cutter. I used matte accents for this as I was awaiting a new bottle of glossy accents. Any strong clear glue would do the trick.
Once that was fully dry I trimmed the excess acetate from around the edges. I used an anti static bag around the cookie cutter to help reduce the glitter sticking where I didn’t want it. My new bottle of glossy accents had arrived by now so I flooded the inside with a layer just less then 2mm thick and popped a layer of glitter on top. It’s quite important to let this dry fully before carrying on.
I trimmed the little sentiment labels and cut out one of the tea cups from the exclusive paper and added them to the front of the cookie cutter.
It looks great with a light behind it; it really brings out the colour and sparkle of the glitter.
I’ll be back soon with another make (or two) using the May box. What are you planning to make?
