Glitter Is Great!

(And not just for Christmas)

 

Posted: 24.10.12

What’s there to not like about glitter? It’s shimmery, shiny, colourful, fun to use and puts you in a good mood. Ok, it’s a tad messy, but that’s part of its appeal. In this spectacular new book, 101+ Things To Do With Glitter (written by Asiana’s Digital Editor Momtaz Begum-Hossain), you’ll be introduced to a world of glittery goodness.
There are instructions for how to make over 100 items, all which contain a sprinkling of the shimmery stuff. From a dazzling James Bond themed cocktail trolley to a Rajasthani style parasol, there are projects for your wardrobe, recipes for delicious treats like chilli jam and barfi sprinkled with edible glitter and even bath products and make-up made using cosmetic glitter. 
And if that’s not enough to entice you, all the projects are super easy. You don’t need any specialist knowledge to have a go, just a willingness to enjoy yourself.
Get inspired and creative on your own, with friends, family or even in community groups. Everyone likes receiving a handmade gift. Whether it’s a glistening paper weight for a friend who has a new office job…

...a giant veggie burger bean bag as a ‘new home’ gift or wedding invitations, there are project ideas suitable for everyone, including yourself!


101+ Things to do with Glitter by Momtaz Begum-Hossain in on sale now in all good book shops and on Amazon.
Published by Vivays. £14.95.

A shimmering Book Launch was held at The Hackney Attic, in London, where the book was first unveiled to the public.
