Last Wednesday was my Birthday – It was a great day filled with well-wishes from the people I love and I finished the day with this adorable cake. So while I had the day to myself, I decided to bake myself a cake and adorn it like all the gorgeous looking ones you find on Pinterest. I broke out all my glitter, ModPodge and scrap paper and set to work to make little glitter triangles to string them together.

I used a glitter ModPodge because I thought it would create a nice base coat for any glitter to lay on top of. I picked out some of my favorite glitter colors and sprinkled them on the backs of some card fails I had with the Yudu screen printer. I did the following steps with a couple of different glitter colors.

Once my glitter paper was dry, I cut them into equally shaped elongated triangles. I used the pointy tip of my exacto blade to poke a small hole at each corner, so I could string the triangles together.

I arranged the triangles as I wanted to see them together, then I cut a long piece of twine string. I also needed to create a slit in the wooden popsicle stick holders so I would have something to suspend it with. The exacto blade was strong enough to make a small crack in the tip so I could floss the twine though to hold up the glitter flags. Perfect!

I threaded each glitter flag through the holes and knotted it behind. I made sure to keep my stitches on the backside so they didn’t show on the front.
