A Quickie and Some Glitter Blast

I think I'm addicted to making these!!!
Super fast breakdown of how I did this (per Alison's request). **P.S. This one is slightly misquoted.  It should say, "to join THE crowd"

Supplies:
Canvas:  I got the gallery wrap ones so they have 1-2" of canvas on the sides
Krylon Glitter Blast paint:  one can will make two small canvases
Sticker letters: from the scrapbook area, the size you want depends on how big your canvas or quote is
Hot glue gun: I use the el-cheapo kind
Ribbon: I used fancy Anna Maria Horner ribbon that I got on sale at fabric.com

Directions:
Put the letters on the canvas.  Go outside to paint and put down a plastic bag or cardboard or something so you don't have a glitter driveway or grass.  Following the directions on the can, spray over the entire front of the canvas evenly.  You have to spray a bit to get it dark enough (at least I did).  DON'T TOUCH IT FOR 20 MINUTES!  When at least 20 minutes have passed, you can remove the letters.  I would suggest letting it dry a tiny bit more before you do the next step.  Working on one side at a time, put a line of hot glue along the middle of the canvas side and press your ribbon down on top. Ta-da! Fun decor!  I now want to make a million of these in all sort of colors, quotes, and fun sayings!  Thanks to my friend Sara Rose for the inspiration and the heads up on the spray glitter paint!

Canvas, stickers, glitter paint, ribbon, hot glue gun--gettin' my craft on!
