My alphabet cards finally arrived today! It feels like I have been working on this project forever and I was so excited to finally post them in my shop tonight. Now on to planning a superhero birthday party that is just around the corner!

I ordered alphabet cards for my new alphabet prints and I want to be able to hang them from a ribbon. I thought it would be fun to give the clothes pins I am going to use a little punch. I am a big fan of glitter and I had an unopened bottle of Mod Podge calling my name so I gave it a go and am thrilled with the outcome.
The process was as easy as could be. I added one layer of Mod Podge to the top surface of each pin and sprinkled on some glitter.
Nothing is more annoying than a glitter project that sheds all over the place so in order to secure the glitter I put on a second coat of Mod Podge with one more light sprinkle of glitter.
This method secures the glitter very well. I am also planning to add some strong magnets to the back of some of them and use them on the fridge to hold our favorite art projects. I love 'em!

Wow...it has been so long since my last post. This is largely because I just opened a new Etsy shop (www.sweetalphabet.etsy.com) of alphabet prints. Here are a few of my favorites:
I have a few projects up my sleeve, though, so posting will resume!
