Step 2:

Choose the “Merry Christmas To All and To all A Good Night” sticker from the sticker sheet.  Ink the edges, punch a hole in the side that doesn’t have one already and add some mounting tape to the back.

Thread some bakers twine through one of the holes in the sticker.  Mount the sticker onto the background paper over the green part, then continue by adding twine to the other side of the sticker.

Squeeze the bottle and add small amounts to the center of each snowflake on the red paper and to the outer dots of  some of the snowflakes.  This is a great way to add glitter to your Christmas card without all of the actual glitter mess.

Let the stickles dry for at least 15 minutes but until they are totally dry! 

Voila!  Your glitter Christmas card is ready to go.  Congratulations.
