    Clearly, your children have the appropriate appreciation for glitter. And understand that more is ALWAYS better.

    I made my bf a headband (80’s sweatband-thingy) for her bachelorette party… and wrote on it with glue, and then put glitter on the glue… I didn’t really think it through, because on her wedding, she still had glitter in her hair, and her eyebrows, and her ears… I was like, whoops. Um, sorry??

    Cute! Though I must confess that I have a fear of glitter. If I get a card around the holidays with glitter, I’m always the one at work with a few pieces of glitter sticking un-stylish-ly to her face…You are a brave woman to work with the stuff and let your kids work with it without wearing hazmat suits! 🙂

    I love, love, love this idea! So easy but so effective. I am making this with my students in class for their Mother’s Day Card. I need to find a smaller cookie cutter. I love how you use cookie cutters for everything but! ~Thea

    I think I’ll leave this post “accidentally” open…and I love the typography you originally used but I think you’re right, your daughter’s handwriting is the clear winner here 🙂

    I obviously need to get in touch with my inner glitter girl, because these are so fun! I never use glitter and I’m clearly missing out. Way to come up with a project that your kids can shine at, your moms will love and was creative for you too.

    ha!ha! I love glitter but you are right; I still found “Christmas” glitter in my kitchen in March 🙂 You know what I will try this with my son, he loves drawing and I will have him make a card for his grandma’s this year but I think I’m the one who will have more fun than him with glitter! 😉

    Alex, I feel like you’d get a kick out of this pin after your card project: http://pinterest.com/pin/273312271108932752/

    Doesn’t stop us from using glitter as much as we can, though, does it? #iheartglitter
