- Using an x-acto knife, cut out the center of the star leaving the bold black lines as your outline.
- Cut a piece of contact paper just slightly larger than your paper. Prepare a clean work surface and place your paper face up flat on your surface.
- Peel the backing off your laminate and hold the sides. Place the center of the laminate on the center of your paper and then lightly press the contact paper out from the center to the edges. Since the contact paper is easily repositioned, you will be able to easily pick it up and turn it over.
- Apply as many tissue squares as possible — kids LOVE this part!.
- Sprinkle glitter into uncovered areas and shake off any excess.
- Now, cut a second piece of laminate and cover the back.
- Trim the excess laminate from all four edges. Now, it’s ready to hang or display!
