1. Cut out patterns and trace onto poster board. Cut out shapes.
2. Each piece will be covered with fabric with excess fabric turned to back for a finished edge.
3. Squeeze a puddle of Tacky Glue onto foil. Place a poster board cut out on scratch paper. Dip brush into glue then brush a thin, even coat on one side. Immediately press onto wrong side of desired fabric. Flip over and smooth with fingers. Trim fabric to about ¼” around smaller pieces and ½” for larger. Use scissors to snip every ¼” along excess fabric. Brush Tacky Glue along edge on back then press snipped fabric into glue creating a finished edge. Let dry. Repeat step to cover remaining pieces. Use pinking shears to cut excess from wing shapes leaving a scant border of fabric to cover edges.
