Glitter & Magic! Elizabeth Craft Designs May Designer Challenge.

This month's challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs is to use glitter on a project! That's not a challenge, that just plain fun!  I haven't made a wand for quite a while and glitter just screams magic wand to me!  And a birthday magic wand is even better! I bet you know someone who needs a magic wand.

Before we make this, here is some information about winning the monthly draw at Elizabeth Craft Designs. ECD always asks a question to be eligible for the prize.  Here is this month's question (so hard to choose!!  I want them all!):
Which of the new Silk Microfine Glitter Palettes is your favorite, Earth, Beach or Bloom?
 Due to some customers having issues leaving a comment each month on the Designer Challenge post for their chance to enter the give away … they are now giving customers two options to comment … the challenge blog post and the Designer Challenge post on our Facebook Page.

And now back to our magic wand!

Happy Birthday 2  Quietfire | ECD
Magic  Quietfire | ECD
Fitted Stars ECD
Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets ECD
Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape  ECD
Silk Microfine Gitter in Vintage Pink and Copper Rose ECD

Other Supplies
Doweling or a chopstick

Ribbon in black, white and pink
Cardstock in white, pale pink and black


  1. Apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive to a piece of cardstock large enough for the two largest Fitted Stars.  Die cut the two largest stars from this. Die cut one large star from pale pink cardstock (this will be be the back). Die cut three of the smallest stars from cardstock covered in Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  2. Die cut Birthday from pale pink cardstock and Magic from black cardstock.  
  3. Remove the release paper from the largest star and cover with Copper Rose glitter. Tap off excess and return to container.  Polish the surface of the glittered star with your finger to bring out the shine.  Repeat with the smaller star, using Vintage Pink glitter. Repeat again with the smallest stars and Copper Rose glitter.
  4. Adhere the larger stars together and add happy and birthday to the front as shown.
  5. Flip the stars face down and attach to the doweling with strips of tape at the angle that you like best!  
  6. Cut about two feet of each colour of ribbon. Tape in position, so the ribbon draps below the letters. 
  7. Fold the ribbon over so it all exit from the bottom of the star and adhere the large pale pink star over the back of the decorated star, encasing the doweling and ribbon.
  8. Thread beads on the ribbons and stick small stars randomly on the ribbons.  Trim the ribbons to the desired length.

Thanks for following along!  Enjoy making your magic wand.  We know the person you give it to will adore it!

Happy creating, Suzanne
