I HIGHLY recommend STICKLES! It's glitter glue that is very easy to use and no mess! It adds so much to your layouts, cards or paper crafts!
I listed a few of my favorite colors below!

I also recommend Stickles!!! They are great.

But if you have glitter and want to use it up, Stampin' Up! and Stampendous make a product that is amazing for glitter. I don't know what Stampendous calls it but Stampin' Up! calls it Heat and Stick powder. You use it like embossing to heat up the powder and it is wonderful from what I hear.

I love stickles as well mainly because I have control over it.

However, I just did the technique of stamping and then putting glitter on it and shaking it off. I was surprised as to how well it worked.

If you have xyron machine you can make glitter paper.

Did you see the martha stewart video on this site for using glitter? It has some nice ideas.

Hoe that helps.

The video is more focus on Martha's glitter but it does show the stamping and glittering technique.

Let's see if I remember this right...to make glitter paper run your paper through the xyron with the permanent adhesive cart. installed.
On the sticky side sprinkle your glitter, it stays pretty well. then run it through with the adhesive/laminated cartridge. (Only one side laminated) This will keep the glitter in place. You can then use punches or if you don't take the paper off the adhesive side you can put it through a die cutting machine.

What I do with glitter is I mostly use it for titles, lettering, and small embellies here and there. For titles and lettering, I will run the letters through the Xyron backwards, so the adhesive is on the FRONT. Sprinkle with glitter, shake off the excess. Then I seal it with decoupage. (Mod Podge works extremely well, but I have Martha Stewart Decoupage.) It may take a few hours for the decoupage to dry. For any other glitter work, I tend to use Stickles.
