- 3. Along bottom of smallest ring, use nozzle of tacky glue to draw thick line of glue, making 1/4"-1/2" "hills" of tacky glue. Sprinkle glue with glitter. Shake ring over copy paper to remove excess; return loose glitter to container. Place ring on plastic bag, with right side up, to dry. Repeat process to apply glue and glitter on each ring; let dry.
