Glittered Photo Birthday Cards

Introduction

Even the glitter minimalist has cause to celebrate with these handmade birthday cards. Just a touch on family photos highlights charming elements like a birthday cake or just-blown bubbles.

Apply glue to the details using a fine-tipped bottle, and sprinkle with glitter in the color of your choice. The black-and-white images were sized to fit envelopes, printed on matte heavyweight photo paper using an ink-jet printer, and affixed to colored card stock. You can also add glitter to photos to frame and display.

    This is such an easy and fun craft. It is especially fun to do with the grand children and to use photos that let them know about family history!
