I love it! I'm always frustrated by the trail of glitter and sequins left in the wake of sparkly things, so thanks for the tip about E-6000!

Hope it helps!

These are awesome! I might use this technique to make some silver disco heels for an outfit I'm planning for Burning Man!

(Seriously, who has $400 to spend on sequined shoes! I'm jealous of those people, haha!)

Not me, I'd much rather make something fun then spend the $400 bucks for it! If I spend money it's for an experience like vacation or a big dinner out with friends....
