Glitter decor

The current challenge over at The Paper Girls is to use Glitter! As a mom of 3 boys I don't get to do that often enough!
My little niece is decorating her room in pink, white, and black so I thought I would make her some 3-D letters in her initials to decorate her room.

I used this 3-D letter svg file from to cut the letters out of cardstock.
I added some black and white paper, and then a layer of pink glitter paper!

I added some black rolled flowers and a bow to the T and a fabric flower to the R.

These are so fun and {almost} easy to make. If you make any of these (and I highly recommend you do) please watch the assembly video. And have lots of quick-drying liquid glue handy. Some letters have way more pieces than others and can be a bit tricky. I used this last year to make all the letters in "Merry Christmas" for my mantel. Talk about time-consuming! But it was well worth it.
What would you make with these files? I want to make more seasonal words for my mantel. My sad little mantel needs help. I should do this soon.
Thanks for stopping by today!
