How Do You Make Rhinestones With Silhouette Cameo?

Making rhinestones with a Silhouette Cameo is an easy and fun way to add a little sparkle and shine to your projects. The Silhouette Cameo is a digital cutting machine that can be used to create intricate designs and shapes out of vinyl, paper, fabric, and more.

The machine uses its own software to cut out the design you’ve chosen, but you can also use specialty materials such as rhinestone sheets. Here’s how to use your Silhouette Cameo to make rhinestones:

Step 1: Gather all of the necessary supplies. You’ll need a Silhouette Cameo, a cutting blade, an adhesive-backed rhinestone sheet, transfer tape, scissors and a weeding tool.

Step 2: Open the Silhouette Studio software on your computer and create or open the design for which you want to make rhinestones. After you have your design ready, place the adhesive-backed rhinestone sheet onto the cutting mat with the adhesive facing up.

Step 3: Load the cutting mat into the machine and select “Rhinestone” from the material type menu in the software. Adjust the blade depth settings according to what it says in your user manual. When you’re ready, click “Send” to start cutting out your design from the sheet of rhinestones.

Step 4: When the machine is done cutting out your design, remove it from the mat and peel away any excess material around it using a weeding tool or tweezers. Then take some transfer tape and cut out a piece that is slightly larger than your design so it covers all of its edges. Peel off one side of the transfer tape backing and stick it onto your design so that all of its edges are covered with tape.

Step 5: Peel off the other side of transfer tape backing and carefully place your design onto whatever surface you would like it on – be it fabric, paper or something else – pressing down firmly so that all of its edges stick securely onto that surface. Now all that’s left is for you to carefully remove any remaining pieces of transfer tape from around your design!
