  • I put on the double adhesive tape at the back of the paper


  • Then cut the letters
  • Use the cutter to cut the inner / holes on letters
  • Use black marker to enhance the outline of each letters
  • Cut the lower part of the ribbons like triangle to keep the ribbon from having loose ends

  • Align the letters on the sash ribbon and peel off the sticker cover and put the letters on top of the ribbons.  The advantage on using sticker letters on your sash is that you can always remove the letters to adjust.

  • Once all letters are on the ribbon, cover the letters with colored glue.  The glue will give a glossy effect on the sash and protect the sash from getting wet.
  • Let it dry

Once dry your sash is now good to use.
