I’ve been having so much fun with my Silhouette SD Electronic Cutting Machine! Silhouette America recently sent me a Rhinestone Starter Kit to play around with. OMG! This was so fun and quite easy.
Just pick a Rhinestone design from those available on the included Rhinestone CD or on the Silhouette website. I chose the DIVA design. DO NOT RESIZE design.
Use the PINK cap and select Rhinestone Template Material (make sure it’s GREEN side up). This sets your paper thickness 33.
Peel the template material off it’s backing and stick it to the Rhinestone Backing Board.
Drop a pile of rhinestones onto it and use the brush to fill in the holes.
If you need a little help getting the Rhinestones into the holes, Silhouette has come out with this AWESOME little “Pick Me Up” tool (included in Starter Kit or you can buy it separately). Let me tell you…this thing is the neatest thing since Sliced Bread. Seriously. It has a tacky end that easily picks up the rhinestones, so you can place the where you want. Beyond rhinestones, I can think of several other uses for this tool…like picking up and placing sequins and pearls on the baby garments I sew.
Next, press the Rhinestone Transfer Tape onto your Rhinestone design and peel it up carefully (transferring your rhinestones to the Transfer Tape).
Stick the Rhinestone Transfer Tape with your design onto your fabric or garment. Note: I’m a rebel, so I put it on a embossed paper hat box. Hit it will the iron for 45 to 60 seconds. Do the same on the opposite side of the fabric.
Peel away the Rhinestone Transfer Tape and POOF! You’re a DIVA! And now you have the BLING to prove it!
