This edible sugar glue acts as a sealer, making it a great medium to work with. The kids can paste doilies or paper hearts directly onto glass and by adding another thin layer on top, it seals with a nice sheen. Shop your craft cabinets for sequins, glitter, ribbons and other festive things to use for decoration
