Looking for a fun way to incorporate glitter into your crafts or home decor without a major mess? You’ve got to give double-sided adhesive a try. Today I’ll walk you through the process to show you just how easy it is to use.

 

Double Sided Adhessive

 

 

Step 1: First you’ll select your design in Silhouette Studio®. Under cut settings you’ll select “Double-Sided Adhesive” and the software will give you your platform settings as well as ratchet blade selection.

Hello! I am Marie from Blooming Homestead and I have a passion for all things crafty, this includes home decorating, organization, digital design, DIY, and cooking yummy comfort food! As a recent first time home buyer, I enjoy making our house into a home while sticking to a budget (gotta love those student loans!) This usually requires me to think outside the box and get creative. I love sharing my tutorials and projects in hopes that I can inspire others. When I am not crafting, I like to read, shop, watch movies, and visit with family & friends. Most importantly, I love spending time with my husband of 12 years and our two children who keep us on our toes.
