Just One Tip: Storing glitter and embossing powders-mess free!

Hi, it’s Sharon here today to share with you a little tip for using glitters and embossing powders.

I know that a lot of you probably do the same as me and store your most used powders and glitters in larger tubs to save pouring them back into a small jar each time.   You might also use a spoon to pour the powder over your project which means that you have to fish the spoon out of the powder each time (and may end up pretty covered in it).

I noticed a few other crafters had got round this by using clips designed to manage cables and sticking them to the underside of the lid. I couldn’t find these in any of my local shops, but did discover these instead:

They are clear little hooks designed to hold up fairy lights/Christmas lights and I found they are just perfect for this job. They come in a pack of 6 and were relatively cheap. Mine were from Homebase in the UK, but you can get them on Amazon and various online suppliers.

The hook holds my spoon nice and firmly and keeps it out of the glitter.

As you can see, I use a pretty large tub for my glitter so that I can hold my card right in the tub as I sprinkle the glitter on, that way I don’t get any stray glitter on my desk.

Maybe this tip will help you, too! Have a great day!
