Are you one of those talented individuals who can design and then create pretty much any jewelry and it will look like it was made by a professional artist? If you fall into that category, maybe you are trying your hand at creating Mother's Day gifts with rhinestones and crystals as the main design. Have you sed hot fix rhinestones and crystals in the past? If so, you don't need to read a single other word. However, if you are new to hot fix decorations, here are some ideas that might help you to create beautiful Mother's Day gifts.
Buy The Supplies - Maybe in the past you have used adhesives for your jewelry making that take awhile to dry before they are totally set. If so, you are in for a lovely craft experience. Start by selecting a variety of hot fix rhinestones and crystals, such as from ModeBeads. You'll also need the applicator to complete your work. Read the instructions carefully before you begin your Mother's Day gift projects.
Maybe you have a friend with whom you have worked on craft projects before. If he or she is the one who told you about hot fix rhinestones, consider getting a tutorial from that person. Watch him or her work with the applicator and the hot fix rhinestones first. Then, when you feel confident to do the work alone, do your first work with your friend. He or she might have suggestions that will help you.
Create Your Design - You are about to have so much fun that you might have to make yourself stop your work just to get a bite to eat. Think of the projects you want to make with your hot fix rhinestones. For example, you might want to decorate a T-shirt for your mother. Using the applicator and the loose hot fix rhinestones, create your mother's first name. Or, try a monogram on the shirt.
Another idea for clothing items enhanced with hot fix rhinestones is to write a message on the object. For example, perhaps you are embellishing an apron for a mom who loves to cook. using the applicator and the hot fix rhinestones in your mom's favorite color, write an entire message on the apron. For example, Kiss The Cook or Love Is In Every Bite are two examples of wording that you can create using the loose hot fix rhinestones and the applicator.
