  1. Hi Amber, you forgot to add the other liquid you used to mix with the gold paint , to the “materials used” list. :)….LOVE this

  2. Does the glitter flake off? Or is it pretty well adhered? Most of the glitter tote bags I’ve seen end up shedding a lot of the glitter every time you touch it.

    1. No flaking!! The Mod Podge mix makes it a very smooth, glittery finish so you don’t have to worry about glitter floating away onto your clothing.
