Materials List

  • 4 pieces of StyleTechCraft’s transparent glitter film with plotted graphic (bird)
  • 1 piece of matte black film with plotted graphic (bird)
  • 1 sheet of premask
  • 1 sheet of poly
  • Squeegee
  • Picking tool
  • Hummingbird Template

Instructions

Note: Our vinyl will stick to most clean surfaces.  However, StyleTech’s Transparent Glitter is also permanent, so, please only apply this bird where you want to see it for a while.

  1. The matte black bird will be the base. Using a picking tool, you will need to remove all the inside pieces of the bird along with the surrounding material leaving only the outline.

  2. After you have removed all the inside pieces of the bird, you have a blank canvas to add your color transparent glitter pieces.

  3. We have included four different colors for you to choose from. You can use all of the colors or just a few; it is entirely up to you!

  4. Using your picking tool, weed the material from around the colored birds that you want to use, leaving only the interior pieces.

  5. Using your picking tool, remove a piece from the TG bird and place that piece in the same spot on the matte black base.

  6. Continue these steps until you have filled in all of the empty spots of the matte black bird.

  7. After you have completed your bird, take the sheet of transfer tape and, starting from the top, gently place the transfer tape directly on top of the bird.

  8. Use the squeegee to press the transfer tape down fully on the bird.

  9. To transfer the bird to its new home, starting at one corner, lift the transfer tape up, pulling the transfer tape and completed bird with it.  Gently place your bird where you would like it to live.

  10. Once it is pressed down, slowly remove the transfer tape from the bird and you have a finished project.

I find this a very frustrating tutorial since there is no link to order the items nor does the manufacturer's website list a pattern, etc. I believe this was only included to gather email addresses when people enter the contest in the false hope of winning the materials to make the project.

Hi there! You are welcome to visit the Styletech Crafts website to order to browse their products, and it looks like their products are sold on Amazon as well. That said, I'm glad you mentioned the missing bird pattern! I checked our files and we don't have the pattern in our system, but I will reach out to Styletech to see if they have one available. We always seek to provide all of the information necessary to make a project. Thank you for reaching out.

Hi there! I wanted to let you know we received a template from the company and it is now linked in the materials list. Please let me know if I can help with anything else!
