Add crystals and rhinestones to sticky back canvas.

Step 1: Cut seven strips from painted canvas for the larger coiled embellishments. They should measure one-eighth inch by eight and one-half inches. Cut sixteen strips from painted canvas for the smaller coiled embellishments. They should measure one-eighth inch by four and one-quarter inches.

Step 2: Roll a bamboo skewer along the clear embossing pad so that the rolled canvas does not stick onto your skewer when it’s time to remove the coil.

Step 3: Remove the paper backing from a strip of the pink canvas, place the canvas strip on the skewer and begin to roll it onto itself. Continue to roll and coil the canvas strip on the skewer, keeping the edges aligned and when you reach the end of the strip add a dab of Multi-Medium to secure the end. Remove the coiled canvas from the skewer. Repeat this process for all of the thin canvas strips.
