Let your CrystalTex cool for a momemt. It should look like the image above.
sliding one of your love knots through the other
Add a couple drops of super new glue into one of your terminals from the back (non-pave) side.
Tightening your love knot, and Regaliz Sliders
Slide in your CrystalTex and let it dry throughly. One dry, repeat on the other side (make sure before you glue the second terminal, the pave sides are both facing the same way)
trimming 5mm leather with scissors
Let the glue set. It may take a few minutes longer than it does with leather. Notice in the picture above when my CrystalTex is curved, both pave terminals face outward.
