This is an idea that you can transform for any holiday (or non-holiday) you want to celebrate. You can visit Jim"s blog here to see the original idea and steps to put it together. I changed mine up a bit. Covered thin chipboard with the paper, cut it out, made structure strips out of black card stock and hinged it together from the inside. The rosette is from T!m's Mini Rosette die. I used the smaller of the two. Check out how to add the glitter to the edges here.

Last week I got in the mood and decided to create some in halloween colors so I'd have some on hand. Cut some out in the craft room and finish them off while watching the Gators or Seminoles play, can't beat that!
Once you have the rosette assembled, but before you add the circle on the front, brush some quick drying glue onto the spokes of the rosette. Turn it over and dunk it in the glitter of your choice. Flip it back over and let it dry. How easy is that?
Another way to add glitter is to squeeze a thick line of quick drying glue onto your craft mat, about 2-3 " long. Use your rosette as a "wheel" and roll it into the glue until you have the edges covered, then roll the edges into glitter.

A few seasons ago, 7 Gypsies produced a series of stickers based around themes. I think they did one for every letter of the alphabet. I think I have them all. One of my favorites is titled Gypsy. I love both the colors and the sentiments. I turn many of them into page accents which allows me to customize the album I'm creating just a little bit more. I love this tiny treasure. Enjoy!
