You can see all the materials you need at a glance in our photo. We used edding 751 gloss paint markers in white and silver. First, print out the template and cut off the blank edges to suit the size of the jar. Tape the template inside the jar so the text shows through clearly.
It will now be quite easy to copy the text onto the glass using the gloss paint markers. Before you use a gloss paint marker, you need to activate it as follows: shake the marker vigorously with the cap on, then remove the cap and pump the marker a few times on a piece of absorbent paper until ink appears in the nib. Now you’re ready to get started. When writing the wording, you can alternate between silver and white. After use, always store the marker horizontally.
In the case of broader letters, we recommend you draw the outer edges first and then wait a while until the ink is dry before filling them in. Try adding a few small stars or snowflakes to jazz up the writing. Finally, remove the template. Your cookie jar is now finished!
