The awesome part stays in it’s glitter and then you can change up the message on the chalkboard part of it. We’ve had a lot of fun with this project. And my preschooler wanted to pose with every sign we made – here’s a sampling….
So, let me show you how to work with these Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets…
First, cut your design. You want the yellow side down and the white side up:
My design wasn’t connected, so I need to figure a way to transfer it. I peeled the background away and let my design adhered to my cutting mat:
Then I pushed transfer tape down on top of the design and slowly peeled it up. The transfer tape ensured that the design stayed spaced correctly, etc.
Then I was ready with my chalkboard and glitter:
I carefully peeled the yellow backing off of the adhesive cutout. Be sure not to peel off the sticky part – you want JUST the yellow layer.
Then you will flip your whole design over and stick it into place:
Then pull off the transfer tape. After that, pull off the white backing from the top of the letters. You can see how it leaves the cut adhesive behind:
I used the Silhouette glitter for most colors – it is AWESOME glitter – so fine and powdery!
I sprinkled and spread a different color on each letter. Rainbow order, of course:
That’s it! Stand back and admire those crisp glitter lines!! And…
Here’s a fun image collage for pinterest, if you’re the pinning type 🙂
