I spent the weekend teaching scrapbooking classes in Portland, OR., where one of my extremely kind and creative students, Molly James, shared this tidbit with me: the Dollar Tree carries little micro beads, confetti, glitter, etc. in bitty glass jars!
Aren’t these bitty bottles cute?
They’re meant for use in nail art, which is its own HUGE trend right now, but they’re absolutely scrapbook/card friendly. And they’re 8 bottles for only $1! Yes!
We do love our toppings don’t we? From adding colorful baubles to our baking to placing spots of personality on our walls. And the world of paper toppings has seen a big boom in the last couple of years, with sequins, shaped enamel stickers, resin molds, and more. Let’s take a look at this colorful trend!
Yes, wall toppings are here in a big way. Here are just a couple of the awesome accents available at the moment:
Geometric Triangle and Modern Wall Stencils by Cute Stencils
Wall stencils are so fun! I just bought my first two sets from Hello There Store and can’t wait to put them to use. They’re such a fun way to add a splash of topping to the home.
Polka Dots Decal Gold Vinyl by WallsNeedLove.com
Have you seen these metallic marks? They’re vinyl stickers you simply peel and stick to your wall for a quick sprinkle of shine.
Time to sprinkle on some personality using any of these fine paper-crafting products:
Sprinkle Nail Decorations by Avon
Thanks to my former student and new friend, an entire world of crafting opportunity has opened up to me with it comes tiny toppings. These bitty beads are from Avon and would look awesome attached to the top of brads, adhered to foam shapes (like my arrow from last week), and more! What would you do with them?
Tiny Bows on eBay
Aren’t these itsy items the sweetest? They’re on eBay, so you had better get your bidding business ready.
These smooth operators are here in a big way. Gone are the days of simple using round rhinestones and enamel stickers. Now you can add hearts, arrows, numbers and more!

I know, I know, we’ve already covered the popularity of poms on one of our recent Monday with Megan posts, but I just couldn’t resist including this to-die-for topping option now available to you! You’re welcome! ;)
Pom Poms by BasicGrey
Even fine felt cuties are appearing on the scene these days. I want that pink pom sitting atop a cupcake on my next birthday card!
Since we’ve already covered the successful sequin trend, I won’t go into great deal here either, but I did want to show you one of my current projects in process using this sparkling topping—my Easter Egg Garland!
