run needle and thread through.

Pull thread together tightly to form circles, glue ends together,
repeat to make three, set aside.

Stamp three triangles with Aquamarine onto 2nd sheet of paper.
Use decorative scissor to trim around stamped images,
leaving about a 1/4" around, set aside.

Roll out clay to about 1/8" thick.

Ink up your letters with limelight, use q-tip to remove
excess ink if it gets onto the acrylic block....because you are making 
an impression into the clay you want this clean.
Stamp out all of your letters

and cut them out.
Assemble and glue the pieces together, let dry.

Glue ribbon to the back sides of your letters.
Make two bows and glue onto the ends of the ribbon.
