Detailed instructions:

Draft a lettering design. Transfer the enlarged drawing onto the cardboard and cut along the contour. If you think that the paper is still thin, glue several models, thereby making the letter thicker and stronger.

Make blanks of letters from paper

If you are going to make a letter garland, make holes in the upper part of the letters with a hole punch (two by one part to make it easier to lower the models onto the thread, in addition, they will not rotate, but will be fixed firmly to the threads).

Spread the letters with a sufficiently thick layer of glue. While it is still dry, sprinkle the sparkles on the surface of the parts. Instead of sparkles, you can use foil or special design paper with a pattern. If it seems to you that the sparkle is not enough, repeat the procedure on the dried first shiny layer. And remember, you must first prepare the working area, otherwise then the sparkles will be on the clothes, and on the books, and on everything that was nearby.

Add sparkles to letters

Leave the letters to dry well. If after this the edges started «wrap oneself around», put blanks under the press for a day (from books, for example).

Leave the blanks to dry.

Pass the thread through the holes, forming a garland of letters. The second option is to fix the stick or wire on the back with paper tape if you want to hold the letters in your initials. Another easy way to fix letters is to connect them with paper clips or invisible hairpins with a colored ribbon. Everything is ready!
