Hoop this sandwich, tighten the hoop.

Step Two: Upload a file into the machine. Start the machine and embroider the first 2 colors - the snowflake motif and the outline.

Step Three: DO NOT UNHOOP! With a pair of sharp scissors, neatly cut away the top fabric around the outline. Take care not to cut through the stitches.
Then neatly cut away the felt. Take care not to cut through the stitches and the stabilizer!

Step Four: Return the hoop to the machine. The last color will finish the raw edges.

Open the hoop. Cut away the stabilizer close to the stitches.

Step Five: Fill the bowl with warm water and dissolve the remaining stabilizer.
Place the stitch-outs on the towel and leave to air dry.
Press if needed.

Get your rhinestones and/or crystals and tweezers. Depending on the type of rhinestones you'll need either glue or an iron.

Follow the embroidery lines inside each snowflake and adhere the crystals.
We can recommend some products which used from Amazon.com: hot-fix crystals, which have an adhesive back activated by pressing with a hot iron. For attaching other types of embellishments, we recommend Beacon Adhesives Gem-Tac Permanent Adhesive.
