They sell 'hotfix' type rhinestones at HL and other craft stores in the scrapbook section. They are iron ons.

this is what i do!!!

hot fix is definately the way to go..any like others said you can find them at any craft store..joanns,hancocks, michaels, walmart ,HL and so on.

I've also used my wood burner to iron on the hot fix stones..it is very tricky and I've burned my ribbon before too.

If I were to get the hot fix stones, how do they attach? I've never seen them. I'm going to HL and Joanns tomorrow so what section can I find them in? TIA!!

They have an adhesive on the back of them that works when it gets hot. There is a heated tool for them. They are in the iron-on transfer section.

could you use a blow dryer or do you have to buy the heat tool?

No on the blow dryer! An iron or the tool.
