Instructions

Step One

Cut the white Oly-Fun into two 20″ x 60″ pieces. Also, cut the Structure into two 20″ x 60″ pieces. Place one of the pieces of Oly-fun on a table and place the Structure on top with the shiny adhesive side down. Iron on medium heat using a pressing cloth. Now fold in half and cut a 9 inch long slightly curved opening in the center of the fold (can adjust for size). Cut a slit down from the center of the neck hole on the back side to make it easy to put the costume over your head.

Step Two

Use the templates to trace and cut out the symbols on the red and black Oly-Fun material making sure you are lining up the templates with the fold.

 

 

Step Three

Now spray the adhesive glue to the back of the symbols and place on the front and back of the white card. Allow time to dry.

Note: If you prefer you can pin and sew the symbols into place. You can also add ties on the sides of the cards to tie the front to the back.
