  2. Measure around the top of the boot. Add two inches to the measurement. Trim the faux fur to 6-inches high by the determined measurement.
  3. Using the Mod Melter and Mod Melt Sticks, glue hem the top and bottom edge of the fur. The hem should be about 1 inch deep. Next, working on the fur side, glue gold trim across the lower section of the fur.
