I didn't do my research first as to where to actually find a hot-fix tool, so on a quick trip to Hobby Lobby, I picked up something called the Creative Jewel Tool.
The package reads: The Creative Jewel Tool is great for adhering adhesive backed embellishments to fabric, wood, leather, paper, ceramics and much more. The tool comes with 3 points, tweezers, stand and instructions.
I'm getting ready to take it out of the package now and will keep you posted on my success!
I found a cute lazy-susan pen and pad holder in a brown pleather-like material to work with.
Fingers are crossed, please wish me luck. Here is an example of the flatbacks I bought, in light topaz.
I didn't go too flashy to start with, so we'll see how things go. :)
I'd LOVE to hear from any of you who have tried this!!
