Stickles are like a liquid glitter/glitter glue that comes in lots of colors (see the post above). They come out of the bottle in a rather thin line so you can do detail work, like draw a line of glitter around a photo or title letters. Basically, you can use them to add glitter to almost anything without the muss and fuss of putting down some glue and sprinkling loose glitter over it. I have even used them to trace designs on pp so that it gets shimmery. HTH
I haven't bought the stickles brand, but I tried some from the $1 bin at Joanns and I love the added touch they give. I will even cut out small letters and than put that on the letters to give them dimension and color. So much fun for swirls and just about everything!
i am so glad i read this! i've been wondering what stickles are and why everyone loves them so much, and just after reading all of your answers they sound so fun! you can bet i'll be adding some to my stash asap!!
Just picked up 7 more colors yesterday of this very addicting stuff.
If it's put on thick it will remain a bit puffy but if it's put on a bit thin it will flatten which is what I like about this stuff...I have a choice.
