Glitter Me Happy!

Yesterday was spent at the dining room table, sparkling up pages for Etsy, Memory Lane and just perhaps, a few for myself!

These are my favorites, tucked into old Italian metal frames:









Perfect to hang in a little corner on the wall...Or to hang on the tree! I am LOVING these! I have a few more things I want to make today that these have inspired.

I just love what you do with these pages that you find in old books. It's like you're a one-woman rescue squad!

Ok. So did you add the glitter? I adore it! You find the BEST vintage Christmas paper:)

Thanks you guys! I am glad you groove them, too!

Charmed, I DID add the glitter. And the pages are rescued from old Christmas books that have been written on, torn, etc...with just bits and pieces remaining.

I bought about three of these "old Italian" frames with pictures of young girls, .99cents at Goodwill. I, also, thought about changing the pictures; however, mine have a cork backing with glass covering the picture. Did you just, as you said, simply cover the glass with the pictures or did you take the cork backing out?? Loved what you did with them. Even though, I bought two had the same picture..........

Hello Unknown:)
I took the cork backing out and then stuck it back on, gluing it down.
