The electronic cutting tools New Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette Portrait are able to cut over 100 different materials, one of these many possibilities is to cut detailed rhinestones templates. It is very easy to cut, just select a rhinestone template, do not resize it and feed the template material into the Machine Silhouette on a cutting mat. Select media type “rhinestone template material” in Silhouette Studio software and cut. Then peel the template material off the backing leaving the circle cutouts behind and affix the template material to a rhinestone backing board and pour rhinestones onto template. Gently brush the rhinestones in a circular motion until all the holes are filled and brush away excess rhinestones. Once all of the rhinestones are positioned face-up in the template, cover the design with a piece of rhinestone transfer tape. Lift the transfer tape off the template and position the design on the desired surface, so the rhinestones will stick to the transfer tape. Place a thin cloth over the design and press down on top with a heated iron for 45-60 seconds. Then remove iron, cloth and transfer tape. Turn the garment inside out and use the heated iron again, because this will pull the glue into the fabric. After that your project will be ready and your rhinestones will be permanently adhered. Only use designs marked as rhinestone templates.
