WOW #24: Using the Silhouette Machine to add Rhinestones to a Project!

23 Dec

This week’s expert is Kerri Bradford with a project using the Silhouette Machine. Silhouette has recently released a wonderful new product: The Rhinestone Starter Kit. This awesome kit uses the Silhouette Machine to create templates using the downloadable designs they’ve created to add rhinestones to your layouts or any project. I received one, and my daughter and I are dying to play with it!

I asked Kerri to give us step-by-step instructions on how to use this fabulous kit:

480F

4810

4811

4812

4813

(Note: You could also cover holes with tape to change colors, sizes and such.)

4815

4816

(Note: If you are setting rhinestones on fabric, you would set it for 90 seconds on one side, turn it inside out, and set it for 90 seconds again.)

4817

Here is the final sample using The Rhinestone Starter Kit on a layout:

4818

4819

But don’t stop there!! This awesome kit can be used to alter fabric projects as well. Check out these fabulous ideas:

481C

(Supplies: Downloadable Designs – Princess with Wand image, Fleur de Lis image, Flourish image, Beautiful Word image, and Lace circle image all from Silhouette.)

Some fun things to note about Silhouette. They have recently starting adding images from other exciting companies like The House of 3 and Hero Arts. Now you can find your favorite designs in one great location!

So glad you showed us the stuff in the kit, as I tried this with tulip rhinestones and did another way. It worked fine, just a little more fussy!
