How to get the letters onto the pillow

  1. Print out the letters for the words
  2. Tape the glitter sheet on top of the letters
  3. Trace the letters on a window so that you have them on the glitter sheet
  4. Use the X-Acto knife to cut out the letters
  5. Put the letters onto the empty pillow case, place the towel on top and iron the whole thing
  6. Add the pillow insert and you’re done – Congratulations!!! Don’t forget to take a picture, post it on social media and tag me so that I can check it out!
