I love adding A Muse Twinkle Stickers to my cards & projects, especially since I discovered a fabulous time-saving trick!
Meet Kelsey! Kelsey is the newest member of the A Muse crew in Seattle and she agreed to be my model for this photo tutorial. Kelsey LOVES Twinkle Stickers too!
Step 1: Cut the Glue strip
Each gem sticker is adhered to a glue strip. In order to use a single gem, you must first cut the glue line between the gems. Be sure to keep them attached to the plastic backing sheet. In this photo, Kelsey is planning to use a light pink twinkle sticker.
Next you will need some wall putty. You probably have some at home but if not, you can pick some up in the A Muse shop or at your local hardware store.
Step 2: Apply a teeny tiny bit of putty
You need just a tiny bit of putty - about the size of a lentil bean. Roll it into a ball and then apply it to the flat end of a pen or marker. An RSVP pen works well or any other pen with a flat bottom.
Step 3: Use putty to pick up twinkle sticker
Make sure you've cut the glue strip between the twinkle stickers.
Here is the twinkle sticker sitting in the putty...
Step 4: Apply twinkle sticker to project.
This nifty trick has saved me so much time and frustration! And, I am able to adhere the twinkle sticker *exactly* where I want it.
Here are a few more tips:
- Keep your putty "fresh" by removing it from teh pen and rolling between your thumb and finger to make into a ball again.
- If your putty ball is too large, you will lose your twinkle sticker. If this happens, make your putty ball smaller.
- Can be used with A Muse Pretty Pearls too!
Try it and let me know what you think!
