    Sprinkle glitter over the stencil in small areas with the first color and then the next color and so on.

  • Step 4

    Lightly remove the excess glitter by carefully picking up the entire piece and giving it a little shake over an extra sheet of paper. Save the glitter and put it back into an empty container for later use.

  • Step 5

    Turn the project over so that the paper is to the top and remove the paper from the stencil. Do not remove the stencil from the paper or you will risk bending the stencil.

  • Step 6

    You will now have an area of exposed adhesive left. Lightly cover the entire piece with another color of glitter. If you use a dark glitter inside the stencil, use a light color of glitter for this step. If you use a light color inside the stencil, use a dark color on the outside.

  • Step 7

    Create a 3" x 6" tag from the card stock and adhere a smaller piece of patterned paper to it. Add the ribbon in behind the pieces you just created and run it around to the back for a finished look. Place the glittered stenciled pieces on top and adhere them to the tag.
