    2. Instruction #1
    3. Use the Metallic Type Americana Decou-Page Paper sheet in the package that has letters on it, cutting out your favorite font to spell out "Easter" or your choice of word. (I cut the letters out leaving a little border around the edges to make it pop off of the colorful eggs.)
