I embellished these red velvet gift bags to tuck in little gifts for Christmas. They have a vintage, French touch.

I love the new German glass glitter I tried out. I have used other glass glitters in the past but have learned that true German glass glitter has an extraordinary sparkle. Less expensive glass glitters have a mix of dusty particles and un-silvered crushed glass so they won't have that brilliance. Did you know that this glass glitter is made from thin sheets of glass that are silvered then crushed. The silvering gives the glass glitter a beautiful patina as it ages over time. This is what gives those handmade crafts with a vintage theme their aged look.
If you're looking for truly sparkly glass glitter click here to see Meyer Imports Silver German Glass Glitter. They have other colors, too!
Soon I will create heartfelt Christmas love using wood, tin, sheet music, French book pages, old English book pages and silver tinsel twine....
Thanks for being here~
