Using your other hand sprinkle the glitter onto the letter. Repeat until the letter is covered. Push the glitter down onto the felt using your finger or a sponge. Let dry for about 10 minutes. If needed, add more glitter now. Carefully add another layer of gel adhesive. Try to avoid removing the glitter. Let dry for 15 to 20 minutes.

STEP FOUR – Lift your top letter up. On the back of the letter apply an inner outline of the E-6000 glue. Center the top layer over the bottom layer and press down. Let them dry for 15 to 20 minutes.
STEP FIVE – Using scissors cut a small hole for the ribbon to pass through. Knot the ends of the ribbon.
