Steps:

  1. Using your marker, draw/sketch out the phrase you want to write. Since I am making an anniversary card - I put A, heart symbol, and M.
  2. Hot Glue & Watercolor Anniversary Card - write out your letters or phrase
     
  3. Place a piece of glass over the words or symbols. (I used an 8x10 glass from a picture frame.) Use hot glue, and follow your outline.
  4. Hot Glue & Watercolor Anniversary Card - cover with a piece of glass and begin tracing the letters with hot glue
     
  5. Use generous amounts of hot glue.
  6. Hot Glue & Watercolor Anniversary Card - be generous with the glue
