I used my Silhouette CAMEO to create a rhinestone template. The Rhinestone Starter kit comes with everything you need to add some bling to your crafts!

How to Use a CAMEO to create Rhinestone Template

How to use Silhouette Rhinestones

  1. Cut out your rhinestone design {with the green side facing up} using your Silhouette. *NOTE: do not resize the rhinestone design in Silhouette Studio.
  2. Remove the rhinestone template material off leaving the small circle cutouts behind. To do this, peel one corner back and rip it off as fast as you can. Trust me. It works. BUT if you’re like me and think, oh I don’t need to rip it off that fast, you’ll end up picking out the small circles with your finger nail or hook tool. So learn from my mistake and just rip it off fast! Then apply the template to the rhinestone backer board. {the thick white board}
  3. Brush the rhinestones into the holes with the brush that is included with the starter kit. But I won’t lie, I licked the tip of my finger and used it as well! hehe You want the rhinestones to be right side up in the template.
  4. After all the rhinestones are in place in your design, cover your design with a piece of rhinestone transfer tape. Peel off the transfer tape and it will bring all the rhinestones with it. Then position the rhinestone design where you want it.
  5. Put a piece of fabric or pressing cloth {i used a scrap piece of muslin} over your design and press down for 45-60 seconds. Manual says to use wool setting, I used a medium heat. Pull back transfer tape and if rhinestone pull over, iron for longer. Then turn the garment over and press the other side for 45-60 seconds to pull the rhinestone adhesive into the fabric.

I put my rhinestone mustache on natural colored linen that had a bit of a rugged texture. Very fitting for a rhinestone mustache, huh? ha! I layered a piece of batting between 2 layers of the linen inside the embroidery hoop. The batting gives it a little more shape.

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
