And on an unrelated topic...
How about another use for the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper?
Backstory: The boy had to read a book for English class. Then they had to do a project with it. They had several choices of the books, and the styles of project.
SO, the boy decided to read Angela's Ashes. Sorry, no, I have never read this book, so I knew nothing about it. Well... the boy decided that he would do a diorama for his project about the Angel on the Seventh Step. Apparently, this angel brings his mother the babies. And our boy wanted to use Legos for his diorama about this Angel on the Seventh Step.
BUT, in all of our THOUSANDS of pieces of Legos, we did not have any angel wings. How else would you be able to tell that Lego Luke Skywalker was an angel? Yes, he was on the seventh step from the top, but it's not like he wore a sign that said "angel." Know what I mean?
What to do? What to do?
Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.
Grabbing a VERY small leftover piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, we made some angel wings and adhered them together. So the glimmer paper showed on both sides. And we attached the wings to the back of Angel Luke Skywalker with a glue dot. DONE!
Picking the boy up from school today, he told me that Mr. T., his English teacher, said that he liked the boy's project. And that Legos have come a long way. Mr. T. even mentioned to the boy that they didn't have Angel Wings when he played with his Legos as a boy. :) Guess they looked pretty good, huh? FYI - The boy told the truth, that the angel wings were from his mom's stampin' supplies. What a GREAT kid, huh? :)

What do you think? Who knew that Stampin' Up!'s Glimmer Paper could be used with Legos and in an educational setting? Although we used Dazzling Diamonds here, Gold or Silver could also be used. Red and Blushing Bride are also available.
