Fun with the Glue Gun!

So, I keep seeing everyone use these adorable enamel dots and pearls on their cards and Project Life. Some at decent prices and some not. So what do we do!?!? YouTube it and then make it ourselves!!!
I have a small cheapie standard got glue gun, but it’s high temp so it does what I need it to. I just started globbing hot glue on my Ranger craft mat and tapped underneath it to smooth out the glue and any bubbles. Gave it a night to dry and slapped some nail polish on them. They popped right off the mat. I used my Cutter Bee’s to clean up any dried nail polish around the edge.
Voilà!!! Homemade enamel dots. When they’re on a project you can’t see any imperfections! Even if you did, it just adds to the curiosity 😉

These are super adorbs! I can’t wait to start adding that extra little something to my projects.
