Love things that sparkle? Me too!

No-Flake Glitter Straw Slips | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Glitter can be hard to craft with. Especially when you’re crafting with things that might come in contact with food. You’re always nervous it’s going to flake off on whatever you’re working on.

Well I have the answer and it’s awesome! Darice makes a no-flake glitter washi tape and it’s available at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores. It’s beautiful and it truly doesn’t rub off!

I made these no-flake glitter straw slips in less than a minute! Just wrap around your straw and cut a triangle out of the end. Done!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

The recipe is a 1 to 1 ratio, but for simplicity we’ll use 1 cup. You’ll need:

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • food coloring (pastels are achieved with a drop or two, primary colors will need 5 or 6 drops)
  • plastic bowls or cups
  • paint brushes

Mix cornstarch and water together until smooth. Divide and add food coloring until you reach your desired colors.

The glitter really shines and you could practically sand a table with it and no glitter would fall off. It’s perfect for embellishing gifts, crafting and oh yes, DIY party ideas! {grin}

To make these simple drink markers you’ll need:

Cut several lengths of tape, fold in half and trim out a triangle, peel off adhesive and stick to glass, write on your guest’s names. Done!
