So many people have thought that they cannot cut rhinestone templates with Cricut machines whether they be Cricut Explore machines or Maker machines. The answer is YES you can!
While you cannot design your own rhinestone template in Design Space (like you can in Silhouette software) you can grab a premade template and cut it.
Today I demo how to do just that. If you have a design you’d love to see ‘stoned’ let me know! We love hearing your ideas!!
BE SURE TO GO TO THE LIBRARY TO PICK UP YOUR FREE RHINESTONE TEMPLATE!!
I LOVE BLING!!
However, I don’t know about you but I feel like I spend a small fortune buying Sticky Flock for my rhinestone bling. Today, someone in our Facebook Group (sooooo glad you asked, Chow!) asked a question about rhinestone sizing. I was going to cut out the same design that she had cut out so I could help her with sizing. Well, I’ve pretty much run out of my sticky flock (I do have a large order due any day) but I wondered what else I could use since this was just a sizing test.
At this point I thought I’d see if the sizing was good for the 10SS size rhinestones by just cutting CARDSTOCK! Well, much to my surprise and DELIGHT, I discovered that I could pretty much brush all of the rhinestones into my cardstock template!!! Now, if you have used rhinestones and sticky flock you will appreciate my elation. I mean, that sticky flock can get expensive!!
I will add, however, that if I was doing a very intricate design or one that I wanted to use over and over and over, I would most likely go with the Sticky Flock.
Ok, here is the link to the video where I show how to use the cardstock for BOTH Cricut AND Silhouette!
This was quite the experiment. If you watch the video you will see that it didn’t exactly have a happy ending. Through this video I discovered that I cannot us my beloved Flock for all of my rhinestone needs. There comes a time when STICKY FLOCK is definitely needed!!!
This is the Silhouette machine that I have and LOVE!
