Step 1: Using a pencil outline your design on your piece of matboard. 

Step 2: Using a clean paint brush, apply a thin layer of X-Press It Gold Size on the areas you want to cover with the Metal Leaf. Allow the Gold Size to dry for 15 minutes or until it becomes tacky. (wash your paint brush immediately) 

Step 3: Delicately place X-Press It Metal Leaf onto the area where you have applied the Gold Size. (you can use tweezers or your fingers to do this). Once covered with Metal Leaf, use a clean, soft brush to dust off the excess leaf softly.

Step 4: Using the 2 in 1 Glue Pen, write your name. Cover the glue with some metal leaf or glitter. Dust off the glitter or metal leaf.

Step 5: Using the brush applicator of the 2 in 1 paint some dots around the placemat. Cover dots with glitter to create an extra sparkle effect.

May your holidays sparkle with joy and laughter!
