Glitter wrapping paper. Looks so pretty <weep>.

I'm covered, it's in my hair, in my mouth, all over my clothes. The floor is covered. It's stuck to the table. The dog just wandered past fucking sparkling in the light.

It seemed like such a good idea at the time. Damm you to hell Tesco and your gold, glittery reindeer.

I have bought glittery paper before. The glitter gets everywhere and gives the whole house a light Christmas sheen. I really miss the days when my DD’s would make their own glitter infested cards. I sort of loved the whole glittery house thing.

I went to the chemists earlier and to Tesco and then came home and realised MY ENTIRE FACE is glittering gold because of crafts with Dd earlier on. Additionally my car is decorated as a reindeer so people probably thought it was intentional...

I love glitter. Fucking love it.

I accidentally not really an accident dropped a whole thing full of it last year and me, ds, dog and two cats ran around the house in it. Fucking amazing. Dh was pissed and also covered in glitter which made it even more amazing. Angry, glittery dh.

This year I want to buy some of those edible glitter pills and see if my poop is glittery. Or are they just a joke?

dh went to work once covered in glitter. I had used a Lush Bathbomb....not thought anything of it, until he returned home ranting about purple glitter....the bed was like a glitter rendition of the Turin Shroud.

he was then working in a very busy inner city police station grin

I have the exact same paper and was saying this yesterday. Hated it.

Glitter over me and the carpet. The sellotape didn't stick to it as well. And after all the wrapping my fingers were sore where the glitter had gradually being embedded into my fingers especially round my nail beds.

Oh I love it when my house gets accidentally covered in glitter by my small children. So much prettier than the usual mud and cheerios.

I've used that reindeer paper for one of the children's Santa presents.

The sticky tape will never last until Christmas Eve. I'm going to have to rewrap. fshock

I bought a tree from Tesco this year, it looked a decent one, but when I got it home it was covered and I mean covered in loose glitter. Nursery looked a bit bemused this morning when DS2 went in looking like Liberace because he decided to hug the tree on the way out of the door blush

I bought the same paper OP. It looks lovely but the glitter goes everywhere! I wrap presents on the ironing board and I had to hoover the ironing board before I could iron anything!

I'll be buying non glittery paper next year!

Glitter is the herpes of the craft world. Just when you thought it was gone.....grin

PossumInAPearTree Wed 14-Dec-16 18:41:50

Sadly I have enough of the bloody paper left for next year!

StewieGMum Wed 14-Dec-16 18:51:22

I wrapped the Santa presents in it! I had to vacuum the carpet 4 times to get it out completely. No idea how I'm going to get rid of the trail from the cupboard on Christmas Eve!

Gingernaut Wed 14-Dec-16 18:51:28

I bought two packets of Christmas cards.

They looked quite 'classy' with almost photographic pictures, highlighted with a light sprinkle of translucent and gold glitter.

I brought them into work so I could write them in the quiet times betweem phone calls.

There are now traces of glitter in the keyboard, on the mouse, in the carpet and on the screen.

There's glitter here at home as well. Visible bits on the table and small sparkles glinting out of the carpet.

I've vacuumed twice.

dudsville Wed 14-Dec-16 18:55:52

I keep bumping into colleagues at work who are talking with me as if they are unaware they have bits of glitter on their faces. I

A very lovely friend distributes 'Christmas magic' by scattering glitter inside her Christmas card envelopes. It's such a lovely surprise when it explodes all over the house and it fillls us with happy sparkly thoughts...fwink

Kit- I'm so doing that.

Genius, Tondeleya.

for work i'm a journalist. couple of years back i questioned the then prime minister, asking serious was only afterwards a fellow reporter said 'you know you've got glitter on your face'smile

giraffesarefab Wed 14-Dec-16 21:37:02

I feel your pain. My Facebook time hop today was based solely on Tescos glittery gold reindeer wrapping paper! Fwiw, I still found the glitter weeks later - good luck! fgrin

Starlight2345 Wed 14-Dec-16 21:41:28

IF it makes you feel better my Ds decided to help the elf on the shelf and sprinkle a tube of glitter all over the carpet hmm

SleepFreeZone Wed 14-Dec-16 21:44:22

I actually think I maybe glitter phobic. I can't stand the stuff and actually get anxious if it starts shedding all over things. I don't let glitter adorned shite in the house. It gets filed in the outside bin 😳

polarbearshuffle Wed 14-Dec-16 21:47:05

This was me last year! Except I underestimated the glitter and stupidly packed all the gifts wrapped in the stuff in my suitcase when visiting family. I think my clothes were sparkling till Marchfgrin. The washing machine has zero power against the glitter!

I also have this wrapping paper and can't get the tape to stick fangry
