After customizing your text, print on vellum or your choice of text paper.

Next, print the bottom layer outlines that will be the base of your tag.


IMPORTANT NOTE – Glitter Paper Can’t Be Printed!

If you are making tags with glitter card stock, please note glitter paper can not be printed. Instead, print outlines on copy paper to layer over glitter paper, then cut. (See left)

If you are using any other card stock as a bottom layer, you can print outlines directly on this card stock.
