  1. Thanks so much for including my glittery heart box! Just to note: this is not actual glitter which will fall off, but instead I used a special glitter paint that still looks like chunky glitter when dried. The best part is that nothing comes off on your hands, even if you rub it! (I’m not a glitter fan either, but totally love using glitter paint!)

    1. Awesome! Thank you so much for clarifying, Laura. I updated the post accordingly to include your note about the special glitter paint to use.

      Best wishes,
      Carrie
