Did you know the Silhouette could create rhinestone images? I’ve been so excited to try the new rhinestones. I love extra bling! They were also a lot easier to use than I thought they would be.

The first thing you’ll need to do is purchase a rhinestone shape (.99 cents each). It must be a rhinestone image. The selection isn’t quite as great as the normal shapes, but I did find a few that I  loved!

Whenever I put my shapes in the studio I turn each of them to maximize my space. Once everything is positioned correctly you’ll cut it out with your Silhouette. Make sure to use your pink blade and  set the thickness to 28.


Also make sure you are using the rhinestone template material. Then your all ready to cut!


Once the image is cut, peel away the negative paper.


I did have to peel away some of the dots that were still sticking, so just make sure to pop out any extra dots left on the paper.


I  used my pick me up tool (which I LOVE) and set the rhinestones in their place. Some of the holes were for bigger rhinestones but I just filled them in with what I had and you couldn’t even tell. Once your design is all filled in you’ll put the transfer tape (carefully) on top of the design. Then you can peel it up and iron it on to your surface.


Originally I was going to put the chandelier on this mirror but I couldn’t get it to iron on.  Go figure. lol. So then I put it on this pillow. Cute huh?


Then with my rhinestone egg (free shape last week) I made my little girl a “First” Easter Shirt.


I grabbed a onesie and cut out a 4×4 square. Then stitched that on with a swirl stitch.


Then of course I had to use some of the heat transfer to have it say “My first Easter.”


Next I filled in this little cute egg and put on the transfer tape.IMG_5868

Then I ironed it on (set on wool setting for 45 seconds) and slowly peeled away the transfer tape.


Then I lined the top of the shirt with sew tac glue and placed the rhinestones on with my pick me up tool.


Now my baby girls all ready to celebrate her first Easter!


Oh and how could a onesie makeover be complete without a ruffled bum?! It just can’t in my book. ;)


L.O.V.E. those chubby legs!


I could not get her to smile or show off that rhinestone egg… but she’s still cute as ever!
