clap (or 10). Today, I wanted to share a medium that

s new for me

flocking powder. When applied, it is slightly raised and has a soft velvet


like texture. I recently used it on glassine treat bags, and was pretty happy with the outcome. The powder added a lovely texture that I'm sure my friends and family will enjoy. 

I used the 

double-sided adhesive stater kit

 from Silhouette America, and a 


 shape from their online store. The instructions are included in the kit, but can also be found 


Things to keep in mind: After cutting, and while still on the cutting mat, slowly and carefully remove the negative pieces first (

Remove the white liner, then apply the flocking powder - really rub it in

And you're done! Thanks so much for having me, and enjoy your treat bags!
