1. Draw and cut out a collar template. Place the template on the back of a piece of felt and trace around it with a permanent marker.

4. Allow the Hot Fix crystal tool to heat up for several minutes. Arrange flat-back crystals as desired. To affix the crystals: Press the tool on top of the crystal and hold for 15 to 18 seconds with larger crystals or 6 to 7 seconds with smaller crystals.

Oops!
I held the tool’s heating element on the crystals too long and singed the felt. Always do a test run on a scrap first to determine how much time you’ll need to affix each crystal.

5. Cut two 18-in. (46 cm) pieces of ribbon. Thread each ribbon through the hole of a collar half and fold it back. Glue the end of the ribbon, making sure to work on the back side of the collar. Overlap the front of the collar halves and glue them together.
