DIY Rhinestone Studded Flag Shirt {Silhouette CAMEO Giveaway} Closed

Surprise Me!

Looking for a fun way to celebrate the fourth? Glam it up with rhinestones. Silhouette has created a fun way to adhere rhinestones to fabric—amazing!

DIY Rhinestone Studded Flag Shirt

Use the Silhouette CAMEO to create a fun and festive shirt for the Fourth of July. Gather up an old pair of jeans, a white t-shirt and jumbo ric rac ( I got mine from the awesome site Pick Your Plum, you won’t want to miss a single day of these unbelievable daily deals)

Open up your silhouette software. I created these stars for you!

Rhinestone Star Templates

Place the Rhinestone Vinyl green side up onto the cutting mat. Load into the Silhouette. Check your settings and cut! Peel the green vinyl away leaving all the circles behind.

Place the green vinyl onto the backer board. Use the brush in a circular motion to place a rhinestone in each circle. Brush away extra rhinestones.

Once every circle is filled with a rhinestone, place a piece of clear transfer tape over the rhinestone design.

Lift up the clear transfer tape and all the rhinestones will come up onto the transfer tape.

Place the rhinestones onto your fabric. Cover with a thin cloth and iron for about 40 seconds on wool setting. Gently lift up transfer tape. If any rhinestones come up, place transfer tape back down and iron again until all rhinestones are firmly attached to the fabric.

Remove transfer tape. TaDah!

Now sew the little star studded piece of jeans onto a white t-shirt, along with strips of jumbo ric rac.
