2. Once the glue is cold, you can remove the numbers. Though the glue sticks that were used were glittery, the dullness of the silicone form used prevented that the front side of the numbers are sparkly.

4. Work over a piece of paper. While the glue is still wet, shake on a generous amount of glitter to cover it. Then tap the backside of the number to get rid of excess glitter on the number. Set aside to dry. Any glitter that was shaken off can then be filled back into the glitter container.
