DIY Mirrored Collar

DIY collars are making the rounds now - But this tutorial caught my eyes for a sheer ingenious idea!
A fabulous tutorial from Aetienne.net


For this tutorial you'll need-
CDs
An old shirt
Chopsticks
A bucket
Glue
Sissors


Instructions:
  1. Cut out the collar from the shirt.
  2. Place the CD into the container, and pour boiling water into the container. (Be careful and use a cup or something!)
  3. Wait for 1-2 minutes. (Go watch an advertisement, or two.)

Pull the CD out of the water using chopsticks. Wait for it to cool.
Cut a section of the CD away.


You should be able to peel the reflective part away now.



Cut and paste onto the collar- done!
