Motifs are very easy to iron on and can decorate garments in minutes. It takes the hassle out of decorating your own clothes by placing rhinestones one by one.

To apply motifs

  • Rhinestone Motifs

Lay the garment on a hard surface like the dinning table

Peel the motif and place the sticky part onto the garment. This can be moved about till you have the postion  you want.

You can either cover the motif with a thin material like a hankie or apply heat directly onto the plastic. the plastic is heat resistant so wont ment.

Apply HOT heat for 10 to 20 seconds depending on the type of material. Then reverse the garment and re-apply heat for the same length of time.

Let the motif cool for a few minutes then gently peel the sticky plastic. if you find that the rhinestones are coming off also, then re-apply heat for a bit longer.

once the sticky tape is off apply heat directly onto the design to ensure that the crystals havnt become loose while peeling.

FOR STUDS IT IS THE SAME PROCESS BUT APPLY med TO hot HEAT FOR APPROX 5 TO 10 SECONDS ONLY. FOR SMALLER STUDS YOU MAY NEED TO APPLY HEAT FOR ONLY 5 SECONDS ON BOTH SIDES.

NOTE -- If you are not sure about the material then try on a small piece or on the inside to make sure that the material will not burn in the heat.
