STEPS:
Place one of your 12MM x 8MM IRON-ON SKULL NAILHEADS face up on your wallet.

DSC_0016

Gently put a piece of scrap fabric over that wallet, covering the nailhead.
Now iron your fabric for 15 seconds

DSC_0027Slowly remove the fabric, checking to see if your nailhead stayed in place.
NOTE: The Nailhead will be hot, so wait several seconds before you touch it.

You can create a design with your 12MM x 8MM IRON-ON SKULL NAILHEADS one at a time, or all at once.

Repeat the original step over again…Placing the skulls face up, covering it with fabric and ironing.
NOTE: If your skulls are not secure, iron for an additional 15 seconds.

Using your REVOLVING LEATHER HOLE PUNCH, poke a hole on either side of the wallet.
