*Mini Gold Pyramid Studs
*Large Gold Pyramid Studs
*1 tanktop (mine is Converse One Star Women’s Tanktop in White from Target)
*iron & ironing board

2. Add studs to shirt, pushing prongs through fabric, and using pliers to fold prongs over on the inside.
And that’s it:-)
I’m all a-flutter in this cute little tank!
