I have been working on rhinestone templates to share. I realize it can be a bit intimidating so trying to make it simple! If you have used rhinestones before, by all means, go ahead and download FREE rhinestone template (download link below). The design is 4 inches high. Unlike other vector images you cannot resize these and have it work- the holes are made for size 10ss rhinestones. I have used size 11ss stones with this template no problem.
If you have never tried creating or using rhinestone templates with your digital cutter ( Silhouette Cameo “>Silhouette Cameo, KNK Zing,
Cricut using MTC or SCAL, etc) it is not as hard as you think!
You will need some easily found household items as well:
-an iron ( to affix rhinestones to paper or cloth)
– Shur-Line Touch Up Painting Pad for easy brushing in of rhinestones into template.
– talc, corn starch, powder to brush over your template ( this helps your rhinestones come out more easily when you lift transfer tape)
– Nice to have but not necessary is a Brayer
to flatten your rubber onto cutting mat. ( I confess i am lazy and often skip this with no issues)
Watch my videos below on creating Rhinestone Templates. You can use software with any cutter capable of cutting rhinestone rubber ( most of them do!). You can just download template below. File formats are SVG, GSD, KNK and MTC.
Read my post, Creating Rhinestone Templates with Make the Cut Software for more tips on creating rhinestone designs with your digital cuter.
