Metallic peter pan collar

Peter Pan collars are an irresistible DIY. There's only one collar out of our reach, the king of collars, the Vuitton metal peter pan collar. Impossible to DIY. without using metal? No, I found a way to make one similar using some quite strange items : felt, a blow dryer and mirror paper.
Felt it's a very interesting material because it becomes moldable when exposed to heat and keeps the shape when cool. We'll use the blow dryer to shape the felt.
The mirror paper it's a self adhesive stiff paper that looks like mirror, we'll use it to give the metal effect to our collar.
So grab the blow dryer and let's see how I made the collar.

I colletti Peter Pan sono un'irresistibile DIY. Solo uno era rimasto fuori dalla portata di noi ragazze, il re dei colletti, il colletto in metallo Vuitton. Impossibile da riprodurre senza utilizzare il metallo? Invece no, ecco come realizzarne uno simile utilizzando dei curiosi materiali : del feltro, della carta specchio e un phon.
Il feltro è un materiale molto interessante che diventa malleabile quando esposto al calore e mantiene la forma una volta raffreddato. Utilizzeremo quindi il phon per modellarlo. 
La carta specchio è un tipo di carta rigida e adesiva con la superficie riflettente, la useremo per creare l'illusione della superficile metallica.



This is what you need:

when it's warm lift up the rounded edges and the inner border, let it cool for a second and see it keeping the shape

usate il phon per scaldare il feltro, appena sarà malleabile modellatelo con le mani: alzate il bordi esterni verso l'alto e il bordo interno all'infuori, dategli tridimensionalità

until you get the shape that you want.
To be sure that the felt will keep the shape forever spray it with a sealant.

Incollate la carta specchio sul colletto in feltro e continuate a scaldare il feltro fino ad ottenere la forma desiderata. Alla fine spruzzate con un fissante il feltro per essere sicure che non perda più la forma.
