In order to pierce a neat hole, use an awl. Then insert the star into the resulting hole and secure. To do is firmly attach the star with special "feet". Check that the star was firmly attached and not loose.
Please note that the distance between the stars is strictly regulated. On the epaulets of the second Lieutenant and major, you need to retreat 45 mm from the lower edge of the ring to the center of the first sprocket. On the shoulder straps of Lieutenant, senior Lieutenant, captain, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel of the first star is attached at a distance of 30 mm from the bottom edge.
