Step 1
Apply a generous amount of Fast Grab™ Tacky Glue to the surface of your chipboard initial with a foam brush, working in small areas at a time.
Step 2
Use bead tweezers to grab rhinestones and apply them directly on top of the glue. Choose from a wide assortment of rhinestone colors.
Tip: Round rhinestones, small to medium in size, work best on curved letters. Set aside to dry. Glue will set within 30 minutes. Allow one hour to fully dry.

Use sharp scissors to trim rhinestone adhesive sheet and adhere to the corners of your mortor board. (Additional glue is not necessary) And, attach your graduation tassel to the center of the mortor board.

Use a generous amount of hot glue to attach your initial to the center of your mortor board.
Step 5

Measure and cut a 46” length of ribbon. Tie a large bow. Trim ends by making a snake tongue cut.
Embellish the ends of your bow with adhesive rhinestones.
Hot glue the bow to the back of a silver bar pin.
