Get all the major supplies needed to make this project with the Glitter Binder Bundle or you can order them separately.

Laura's Tip:Its easy to give the Grungeboard pieces a touch of sparkle by covering them with glitter sheets. And I love that theres no mess with the glitter! The sheets are very forgiving so if you miss a spot, you can go back and add more.
