3. Place foam core on a healing gel mat or a piece of cardboard, to protect the surface you’re cutting on.

4. Use x-acto knife to cut around ampersand – when cutting foam core, don’t try to cut through the first time you slice into it, but trace the ampersand once lightly and return to cut fully through.

6. Using the same mod podge mixture, brush mixture on bottom half of a Share a Coke bottle. Cover the bottle fully around, and gently brush along edge of label. Sprinkle more glitter over mixture. After setting aside to dry, gently tap bottle to shake off and remove excess glitter. If any glitter dust sticks to the label or other areas of the bottle, this can simply be wiped off with a paper towel.
