  10. Thread glue and glitter beads onto beading wire with a glass bead in between each glue and glitter bead. Add jewelry closure to ends.
  11. To create flowers, place glitter sheet on die and cut flowers. (I used 3 colors of glitter sheets for the layers.) Using hole punch, punch a hole in center of each flower with paper punch. Thread 6″ piece of embroidery floss through bead. Layer flowers and thread both ends of embroidery floss through punched holes. Tie flower onto necklace where desired, knotting ends. Place glue on knot. Let dry completely and cut excess ends of floss. If desired, you can also glue flower to necklace.
