Perfectly Glittered Bamboo Tiles

K Peeps here's another fun technique to use on those rockin' bamboo tiles...Perfectly Glittered to be exact! We're going to be using goodies which you may already have in your stash...Perfect Pearls and some sort of glitter be it Stickles Glitter Glue, mylar glitter, glass glitter, whatever you have on hand. I used Ice Stickles but again, use what you've got :)

OH YEAH....I forgot - I asked about international shipping for the bamboo tile placemats from Linen R Us - they will ship internationally so if you can't find them in your little corner of the world they will help you out!

To begin, press the tile into the Perfect Medium and coat well.

Next, randomly dust the tile with desired colors of Perfect, two, three or more! It's totally up to you.

Your tiles will look something like this....

We're not done yet, apply a line of glitter glue to each tile and spread over the surface of the tile.

Now if you don't have glitter glue, simply apply a coat of your favorite clear drying liquid adhesive then sprinkle with a very light coat of want to be able to see the Perfect Pearls under the glitter coat.

And in no time you'll have a whole pile of glittery tiles ready to use!

I have left the tiles pretty plain ~ you could add collage images, words or other bits to enhance the finished design. I did apply Krylon Silver Leafing to the edges and back of the tiles for this bracelet. It was assembled with stretch cord which allows you to twist the tiles for a variety of looks....

  1. Oooooh... sparkly! *grin*

    I keep asking myself, "what will that girl think of next?!?" So I come back each day and am amazed and inspired.

    These really are gorgeous!

  2. WOW that's a really nice look Roni.

  3. Love the glittery look. I will try this with stamping in between. I know the PP will come off but I hope it will look great with a simple design stamp.

  4. I've got a set of bamboo place mats in transit as we speak! I'm gonna doll them up then dress up my Tim Holtz ink pad case and possibly make some key chains.Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.

  5. These look great! I love anything with Glitter! Have you ever tried this with Glass Glitter?
