Instructions

  1. 1

    Arrange the crystals in the design you want on the item that is being decorated. The crystal side should be facing up and and the flat silver side should be facing down.

  2. 2

    Apply strips of tape to the design. Insure that all of the crystals are covered by the tape. Have a small section of tape hanging over the end of the design for easy removal.

  3. 3

    Run a Popsicle stick over the tape to flatten the tape completely against the crystals.

  4. 4

    Flip the design over into your hand or onto a workspace. The silver side should be up and the crystals stuck to the tape.

  5. 5

    Apply E6000 glue to the silver side of the crystals. Place the crystals back onto the item being decorated.

  6. 6

    Press down onto the crystals to adhere them to the item being decorated.

  7. 7

    Allow the glue to dry, following the drying time stated on the E6000 bottle.

  8. 8

    Remove the tape slowly. Clean tape residue off of crystals with a damp rag.

Tips and warnings

  • Press crystals back down and allow the glue to dry for a longer period if a crystal lifts from the item when removing tape.
  • Do not glue crystals onto hinges or vents on electronic items.
