Customer Query - Step by Step Answer!

Morning All

I have had an email from a Facebook Crafty Friend asking for advice on kit number 589045 from QVC.
As it is so hard - nearly impossible to answer via phone or email I thought I would do step by step photos for you all to see.

Gilding Flakes are one of my all time favourite mediums to use in crafting and it is still one of those that I get questions about weekly, so here goes............................... Hope it helps!

Little Hints & Tips:
When putting your peel off with backing into the pot of flakes - drop it quick as the flakes fly up to cling to the adhesive!
When scrubbing off the flakes with the texture sponge - Always scrub in a circular motion to avoid getting scratch marks!

You can also use flakes on double sided tape - to create borders on your cards!
Stamp on to acetate, cover the back of the acetate with the double sided adhesive sheets and put gilding flakes on there to create a stnning backgrond for your stamped images!

Have fun
If you would like to see more step by step photos for any other kits or products - leave a comment and I will see what I can do!

Thanks so much for the step by step process, I have never used gilding flakes as I didnt think I would be able to use them, but think I'll give them a go now.

Love the header on your blog, gorgeous.
