The mirror collar...

I recently saw an  inspiring DIY tutorial . I should share with you what I discovered.
This is a very inspired collar.
What you need:
  • Unwanted Shirt
  • An old CD, or two, depending on how much surface you want to cover.
  • Basin/Old Container that can fit the CD nicely. (You might want to throw this away when you’re done)
  • A Chopstick
  • A pair of scissors (that you’re, preferably, willing to part with)
  • Uhu Glue

What you should to do:

  • Cut out the collar from the shirt.
  • Place the CD into the container, and pour boiling water into the container. 
  • Wait for 1-2 minutes. 

    • Use the chopstick to remove the CD from the container.
    • Make sure the CD isn’t hot enough to scald your hand, then use your scissors to cut the CD. Don’t cut the CD all the way through!

    • It should now be possible for you to peel your CD into two layers- the reflective side, ..and the other one.
    • Sometimes the CD’s reflective side may be translucent. This is unacceptable.
    • Cut the CD out into angular shapes, then place them on your collar to see if you like it. 
    • When you’re pleased with what you see, carefully glue the pieces on your collar.

    P.S. I certainly will try it soon.
