Watch Us Wednesday with Jan: Glitter Stick Pin

Hi Everyone !  Jan here this week with a quick little tutorial on making a glitter stick pin.

The items you will need are:

Diamond Glaze
Glitter (I used Martha's coarse white)
Tim Holtz memo pin (from Kraft Outlet)

 I worked on a little plastic dish I could lift away from my work table, so as not to disturb the little pin.

 First, tape the back of the pin, like this

 Add some Diamond Glaze in the middle.  It will probably "over fill", but you can always break that part off easily once it is dry.

 Add a pinch of glitter.  And now comes the HARD part !  Put your dish away, and forget about it until tomorrow.  It dries slowly because it is in such a glob.  I know you will want to touch it, I know you will.  But RESIST! 

Pull off the tape tomorrow, and this is how your little pin will look.  Isn't it so cute !  And only about 3 or 4 minutes of time.

Another tip is to keep all of your stick pins on a piece of foam.  This piece is recycled, an old piece from a set of brads.  I can see them easily, and of course now that they "stick" in my mind,  I remember to use them !

See you again next month !  Meantime, stop by my blog, chai tea 'n me, and say hello !!
