Safety tips: GLITTER Tutorial

Yes, the craft world does need a safety glitter tutorial.

Glitter can be a really dangerous thing. Not just for our heroes, either. Your husband could walk past your craft room and be taunted for glitter on his suit. Your kids might get glitter in their eye, and you know the whining that will ensue. And more importantly – on Operation Write Home cards, our heroes could be made visible to night vision goggles! So….I decided I’d help all crafters to be safer as they work. Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch it on YouTube!

Now be sure to leave a comment on the video – so you can win the now famous (infamous?) cannister of GLITTER – and let me know if you think I should auction off the safety helmet on ebay? lol! **giveaway is over**

  1. You just crack me up Sandy. That helmet is adorable.

  2. […] and heart of Operation Write Home. She also has a great sense of humor (which you can see in her glitter video). To see more from Sandy, you can subscribe to her YouTube channel and follow her blog. I promise […]

  3. My thoughts exactly on Glitter. Want to share this but no idea how to do that. Awesome video.

  4. What a delightful video! It brought back a memory of us walling off a room in that plastic sheeting, drywalling & sanding, then when we removed it, the ‘dust’ had stuck by static electricity to it and we made a bigger mess! I could just see the glitter jumping onto the statically-charged sheeting and spreading/exploding everywhere!
    Thanks for the memory!! Imagination extraordinaire! :o)

  5. […] so cute – and he’s pointing kinda randomly. (Like me staring randomly during the glitter tutorial! […]

  6. I have never liked glitter (even before getting involved with OWH), but I LOVE your safety video! Today was the perfect day for me to watch it…I really needed a reason to laugh. Thanks!

  7. […] faithful readers! If you popped in over the weekend, you saw my nutty glitter video – and I hope you’re all crafting safely now! Not everyone in OWH follows my blog or YT, […]

  8. I thnk you were looking at yourself in the mirror to see if you looked beautiful !!

  9. Way too funny. I love the fact that you have a t-shirt on where you are running with scissors in a glitter safety video. Thanks for the laugh.

  10. HAHAHA! You captured exactly how I feel about glitter! Whenever I do use a bit of it, it’s like I’m working with a dangerous microbe in a biohazard zone.

  11. Loved the video and the card. What a great way to start the morning with a good laugh. Are you looking up so that you don’t have to look at the dreaded glitter? Thanks for sharing.

  12. You absolutely crack me up, Sandy – your expressions as you were “waiting overnight for it to dry” were just hilarious! All in all, a very cute card but I’m still not bringing glitter anywhere near my place. As for what you were looking up at, I’m guessing it was your computer monitor. Thank you for all you do to make your videos fun & informative.

  13. This was just tooo cute. You are so creative. Thank you for all of your great videos. Were you looking at the clock to make sure you weren’t running over in time, or at the chat room?

  14. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! You are just too funny. I love the tips on making the snowglobe and of course protecting myself and family! What were you looking at? Well, I think it was probably the stray bits of glitter that got away from you and you were being sure to not let them out of your sight so you could capture them later! Thanks for this fun and informative video!

  15. What an enjoyable video, but may I said your are a little nuts, but in a good way. Have a great day and thanks for a good laugh.

  16. hahahaha that was awesome and you went to all that trouble to protect the room and the spider you found to look and got gliter’d too. hehehe JK Love, Love, Love the hat.


  17. This is hilarious! I love it!

  18. Oh, by the way, I think you must be looking at yourself in that adorable hardhat. I know it fascinated me.

  19. You are an amazing hoot. What a great way to introduce this technique. Your friends must laugh all the time with you.

  20. I think you should keep the ultra-special hard hat – and make more and more – and put them for sale with the t-shirts – seriously! I am seeing a flash mob doing YMCA – with OWH as the lyrics instead!

  21. Fun video Sandy. I rarely use glitter and it IS SO messy, but your ideas are great. I especially like the box idea.

  22. Oh My I just spit out my breakfast laughing. You are the best. That was alot of work and I think Ciara might be wondering ( she has really went coo coo now) I will be trying the glossy accent . Thank you Enjoy your holiday week-end.

  23. I love the wacky video and Thank You for taking the time to make them.
