Quick Craft: Sparkle & Glitter Tape

Quick Craft: Sparkle & Glitter Tape

Do you know there is a difference between sparkle tape and glitter tape? I discovered this when I worked on the craft above. Sparkle tape is much thinner and delicate, whether glitter tape is thicker and more sturdy. I combined both tapes to create new coasters, a simple fall centerpiece and other few things. Sparkle tape worked way better to cover a pencil and the glass vase above.

It is so thin that it blends fairly well with whatever you are applying it to. On the other hand, glitter tape is thicker and worked great on the unfinished wood coasters. I put a brief tutorial below to show how I designed the coasters. Please take a look below. This craft took no longer than 20 minutes ;)
