or… every girl needs a little bling!
Prepare yourself for the longest post in history, but it will be worth it, I promise!
Silhouette is having a great Rhinestone promotion for the next 6 days. More about that at the bottom of this post.
I purchased my image online at the Silhouette store for .99 cents. They recommend that you do not alter the size of the image. (so that the rhinestones will fit in the cutout circles)
This is my Rhinestones Starter Kit-Rhinestone backer board, rhinestone applique, rhinestone transfer paper, various rhinestones, pusher brush, pick-me-up tool, and easy to follow directions.
The directions are to use the pink cap. The silhouette comes with one blade, on which you change out the colored caps for different mediums.
This is the applique paper after the Silhouette cut it out. It’s very difficult to see until you peel off the paper . . .
Oops! I was doing pictures AND video and I forgot to take a picture of the actual rhinestone placement.
After the rhinestones are placed on the applique, apply the transfer paper to “grab” your pattern.
I pressed the shirt—and centered the applique. (oops, no picture of that part)
The directions say to preheat the iron to the wool setting and iron it for 45-60 seconds. (I ironed a little longer just to be sure) I recommend placing some fabric in between the layers of the shirt, so the rhinestones don’t make any dents in the back of the shirt.
The directions recommend turning the project inside out and iron it from the back to make sure the glue “takes”. (Again, I placed the towel in between the layers so that rhinestones would not make “dents” in the back of the shirt.)
Want your own bling? You’ve come to the right place!
