2. Prepare the decoration.

I have decorated my cushion with a heart but you can really choose anything to match the theme of the wedding.

  • On the paper side of the Bondaweb, draw the shape of your decoration (I used a heart template that I had made already.

  • Press the Bondaweb for a few seconds, glue-side down, onto the reverse side of your piece of fabric until the Bondaweb has stuck to the fabric.
