Easy Rhinestone Project - Bella Makeup Bag

Have you ever tried using rhinestones with your Silhouette? If you haven't you should! Today I have  a tutorial on the Silhouette UK bog introducing a simple first rhinestone project.

The Silhouette Rhinestone Kit has great instructions and almost everything you need to get started. What's more, if you use a design from the Silhouette Design Store you can use the basic edition of the Silhouette Studio software.

This pretty makeup bag uses the Bella rhinestone file by Sarah Bailey. In the post I show you how to make this project from start to finish and give some hits and tips that I picked up along the way.

Although the design used 3 sizes of stones it isn't difficult.  Just gently brush the rhinestones into the holes. Start with the largest stones and brush excess stones away and return them to the pack. Add missing stones with a pick-up tool. Then tip on the middle-size stones, brush them into the holes and then brush away the excess. Finally repeat with the smallest stones.

To complete the project use the Silhouette rhinestone setter to apply three of the larger stones to the zip pull tab.

There, the project is complete. Pretty isn't it?

You can make your own rhinestone designs too. The Designer Edition of the Silhouette Studio software gives you design options for a number of different fill patterns and for up to 4 sizes of rhinestones. Why not give it a try?
