Attaching the Tips
The end is near for this project. The color and bling has been added. Now, we move to attaching the belt 'tips' to the back belt piece with the geometric stamping. Using the cut outline on the back piece near the ends, I place the scalloped part of the tips and lightly marked the outline to give me a reference to prepare the leather for glue. I took my scalpel and roughed up the inside of my guideline in a checkered pattern so the leather would accept the glue. Once I completed the roughing, I applied some Master's contact cement on the back piece where the rough area is located.
