Rhinestones – once you start, it’s addictive and you just want to make more.
I held off as long as I could, until I took Terri Johnson Creates hands on retreat last July.
In her class, we designed our own rhinestone design and cut it out. After that one design, I was hooked and started shopping in the Silhouette store for more.
This one jumped out at me and I knew I’d be making some for my nieces in the future.
I had just ordered some supplies from The Rhinestone World and had the opportunity to make these as quick gifts to send with my husband on a trip.
So with this magic flock you cut the design with your machine and then peel it off the backing – rip it like a band aid gets the best results. If it has cut well, the little holes will stay on the backing and you can just scrape them off…..
You can then lay the sticky design down on a safe surface, press it and peel it back again to get more of the circles to stick out.
I then look for any that didn’t come out, remove those and put it back on the backing paper.
Now, sprinkle your rhinestones on top of your template and rub them around until all the holes are full.
Once all the stones are in place, using heat transfer tape, lay it over top of your design and burnish. Carefully life it up and make sure the rhinestones are stuck to the heat transfer tape.
Place your heat transfer on the shirt where you want it and I used an iron with a board under it and lots of pressure on high heat with a teflon sheet to set the stones on the shirt.
I love the ability to make a gift up really quickly and hope you enjoy making rhinestone designs as much as I do.
I would highly recommend attending a retreat by Terri Johnson Creates, you will learn so much and be able to try all kinds of new projects.
The possibilities are endless with the Silhouette Cameo!!!
