To make my St. Patrick’s Day banner I first cut out my pennant (with card stock) & my letters (using the double-sided adhesive) with my Silhouette.

#Silhouette adhesive step 1

The double-sided adhesive sheets have a yellow backing, then the adhesive & then a white layer on top.  To apply the adhesive first I carefully removed the yellow backing from the back of my letter.

Then I placed the letter on my pennant where I wanted it, & then I pressed it down.

Then I removed the top white layer of my double-sided adhesive sheet.

That left a very sticky letter L on my pennant. :)

I sprinkled some my Silhouette glitter that came with my starter kit all over the letter L.

Then I used the supplied brush to remove the excess glitter.

Now I have a clear, crisp very glittery letter L.  Isn’t that the coolest thing ever?? ;)

I finished the rest of my letters, and then I hung my pennants on some twine! The starter kits comes with enough supplies to make this & many more cute projects. Just think of all the fun projects you could make! I can’t wait to do more with the double-sided adhesive. :)
