Ever wondered how stunning glittery flat back rhinestone designs are attached to clothing? Were the flat back rhinestones attached onto the fabric one by one? What a painstaking task!

Here we reveal the secret of using hot fix transfer paper or tape to conveniently apply hot fix rhinestone and hot fix rhinestud designs onto fabric with ease. With this simple method, you can create your very own design, store the design for future use, give it as a gift to family and friends, or even sell your designs for profit!

First, contruct the design on a clean flat surface. You may use hot fix rhinestones or hot fix rhinestuds of different colours and sizes; or even a mixture of both hot fix rhinestones and hot fix rhinestuds. However, do be sure that the flat back rhinestones and rhinestuds used are of the hot fix variety with adhesive on the flat backed surface in order for this procedure to work.

Hot fix rhinestones, hot fix rhinestuds and hot fix transfer tapes can be found in Summer-Ray.com.

Once the hot fix rhinestone design is created, it is ready to be transferred to a hot fix transfer tape. Partially peel off the transparent layer of the hot fix transfer tape from the white backing layer.

Place the sticky transparent layer over the top of the hot fix rhinestone design and ensure the sticky transparent tape makes good and complete contact with all the hot fix rhinestones and hot fix rhinestuds. Apply some pressure onto the whole design to ensure that the hot fix rhinestones and hot fix rhinestuds are well-adhered to the hot fix transfer tape.

Slowly peel off the hot fix transfer tape, making sure that all the hot fix rhinestones and hot fix rhinestuds are adhering to the hot fix transfer tape.

You may now replace the backing sheet below the hot fix rhinestones, and the design is ready to be transfered onto clothing. In this form, you may also preserve the design for future use, with a choice of displaying or selling the flat back rhinestone design.

An iron and an ironing board is required to transfer the hot fix rhinestone design onto clothing. The photo shows a simple hot fix rhinestud design in a strip of hot fix transfer tape, and the sleeve of a T-shirt where the hot fix rhinestud design will adhere to.

To begin, peel the transparent layer of the hot fix transfer tape where the hot fix rhinestone design is from the white backing sheet and position it onto the desired location.

As the transparent layer of hot fix transfer tape is sticky, it will stick to the fabric but worry not as it can be peeled away easily without causing any damage. The stickiness of the tape also helps to set the hot fix rhinestone design in place.

Now, turn the fabric over to reveal the underside of where the hot fix rhinestone design is, making it accessible to the iron.

With the iron set to a temperature suitable for the fabric material, place the iron on to the underside of the hot fix rhinestone design. The heat from the iron will melt the adhesive on the back of the hot fix rhinestones and hot fix rhinestuds, causing it to stick permanently onto the fabric.

Attention must be paid not to place the iron to the fabric for too long to avoid damage to the material due to excessive heat. Quick ironing steps can be repeated a few times in short intervals.

When the hot fix rhinestones and hot fix rhinestuds feel like it's stuck securely to the fabric, turn it over again and slowly peel off the transparent layer of hot fix transfer tape from the fabric. If the heat application step is sufficiently done, you will have all the hot fix rhinestuds and hot fix rhinestones sticking firmly to the material.

If you find that some hot fix rhinestuds and hot fix rhinestones are not sticking well, repeat the heat application step, perhaps with a slightly elevated temperature.

Ta-da! your favourite hot fix rhinestud and hot fix rhinestone design is now transferred to your clothing and ready to been shown off!
